We control risk and return through a dynamic combination of asset allocation, market monitoring and tactical trading.
Active Index Tracking
The markets we monitor are the major economic regions and countries of the world. The most relevant assets for us to buy and hold are index-tracker funds or exchange-traded funds (ETF).
Both index-tracking funds and exchange-traded funds are designed to replicate the composition and performance of the index being tracked. They offer a low-cost investment solution that is ideal for our type of multi-asset portfolios and are easy to purchase and sell. Our investors hold a series of index tracking funds that replicate the major stock markets of the world.
Academic research has proven that over time passive tracker funds, particularly in developed markets, regularly outperform their actively managed but more expensive counterparts. However, the Achilles heel of any tracker fund is that it follows downward as well as upward market movement.
Tracker funds and exchange-traded funds have been a market disruptor. Global tracker funds have grown at an exponential rate in recent years allowing retail investors effective and cheap access to markets. However, their general use has been quite unsophisticated. Crossing Point has taken all the advantages of trackers and reinvented their use.
Crossing Point’s Guardian portfolios use tracker-funds to gain full global asset class exposure. Our dynamic, technical rules-based analysis actively informs us when to hold equities and when to revert to the security of safer investments. This process has been shown to significantly reduce volatility and maximum drawdowns, while providing consistent capital returns.
Crossing Point is a positive disrupter in the world of investment management. Our unique algorithm represents the best in modern investment philosophy and delivers on cost, accessibility and performance.
We invest into the passive index tracking funds of leading investment houses such as:
We are not stock brokers so we do not research or analyse individual company shares. We therefore do not offer individual stock based portfolios. We are asset allocators, market monitors and tactical traders.
