Multi-Factor Ranking System℠ Portfolios

The Multi-Factor Ranking System attempts to maximize the benefits of asset allocation by continually adapting a Portfolio’s level of market risk to the current market conditions. All MFRS Portfolios follow the same investment process, differing only in the underlying positions traded and the degree of risk.

Gross-of-fees returns include the reinvestment of income and are presented before management fees, but after all trading expenses and all expenses charged by the underlying funds and investment vehicles. Net-of-fees returns are based on gross returns and are calculated by deducting the management fee charged both by Fund Architects, LLC., and any introducing advisor if applicable. The total management fee varies by account, and is between 0.0% and 2.0% but will not exceed 2.25%.

Multi-Factor Trading System Portfolios

The Multi-Factor Trading System Portfolios are built around a proprietary algorithm that tracks changes in the moving averages of U.S. large-cap equities. The System’s trading engine will keep the Portfolios fully invested in stocks as long as the algorithm recognizes bull market conditions. During times of market corrections and increased volatility, the engine may move up to 100% of assets to bonds and/or cash.

*The Risk Number is a proprietary scaled index, ranging from 0 to 100, developed by Riskalyze to reflect the relative risk of a portfolio. One of the important drivers of this score is downside risk, measured by the 95% probability range with a Downside of -2% relating to a score in the Low 20’s; a Downside of -5% relating to a score in the  Low 30s; a Downside of -7% relating to a score in the Low 40s; a Downside of -12% relating to a score in the Low 60s; a Downside of -18% relating to a score in the Low 80s.

*The beta used in each portfolio’s BetaBarometer is calculated by taking the current portfolio positions as of the date listed. A six month timeframe or lookback period is used for the beta calculation. As the underlying portfolio’s positions change, so too will its beta. Therefore the beta listed my not be accurate and is intended only as an aid. Fund Architects makes no promises as to the performance of our strategies, and the portfolio’s current beta is cannot be used to accurately predict returns.
