CINCINNATI, OH–(Marketwired – Jan 13, 2016) – FTJ FundChoice, a leading turnkey asset management program (TAMP) with over $5 billion assets under administration (AUA), today announced the launch of Single Ticker Strategies to expand their Market Movement Strategies, Diversifier and Tactical Mandate offerings. The first major TAMP, over $5B AUA, to offer financial advisors access to Alternative, Single Ticker ’40 Act Mutual Funds, FTJ FundChoice now provides access to 21 alternative investment funds from 16 industry leading institutional investment firms. FTJ FundChoice partnered with Rocaton Investment Advisors to identify, perform due diligence, and monitor single ticker funds that represent a diverse set of investment methodologies.
FTJ FundChoice’s Single Ticker Strategies arrive at a time where high market volatility coupled with low returns is making traditional asset allocation extremely challenging across all sectors. This collection of alternative investment funds with broadly diverse investment methodologies offers financial advisors the ability to seek non-correlated returns and to further reduce market risk across an entire portfolio. Single Ticker Strategies augments FTJ FundChoice’s Market Movement Diversifier and Tactical offerings, two of the Three Mandates of Market Movement Strategies — a platform for optimal portfolio construction.
“Ongoing low returns, high uncertainty, and geopolitical concerns, are at the forefront of all advisors and investors’ minds today. The standard approach of seeking returns while diversifying risk is becoming harder to achieve,” said Dean Cook, President of FTJ FundChoice. “We saw our advisors lacking the tools necessary to select quality alternative funds that hedge funds and investment banks have benefited from for years and believed that our advisors should be at the forefront of industry change. We’ve worked with Rocaton Investment Advisors to carefully vet and perform ongoing due diligence on these single ticker strategies so that advisors can provide their clients with alternative investments suitable to their risk tolerance.”
When selecting Single Ticker Strategies, identifying and assessing an investor’s risk tolerance is paramount. FTJ FundChoice has partnered with AdvisoryWorld to provide their advisors with a proprietary risk scoring system that serves as a guide during the construction of their clients’ portfolios.
