The Symphony model is a true strategy of strategies that utilizes our proprietary Quantified Funds. Based on over 20 years of multi-strategy portfolio creation experience, FPI has found that combining actively managed strategies can help provide additional layers of portfolio defense and return potential.
Common Ground is a dynamic, risk-managed investment model utilizing our proprietary Quantified Common Ground Fund. The Common Ground Fund draws upon a universe of stocks rated highly by both ESG (based on rating from CSRHub, an ESG ratings aggregator) and Judeo-Christian metrics (based on ratings from eVALUEator). The Fund is used as the equity portion of the Model. The non-equity portion of the Model can utilize government bond, gold and cash asset classes. Combining these elements allows us to offer a single risk-managed solution that financial professionals may use with clients seeking faith-based investments or an ESG exposure to financial markets.Read more
