  11. 12. Advanced Asset Management Advisors, Inc. Portfolio Construction: Traditional fundamental analysis AAMA fundamental analysis overweighs economic sectors that indicate good prospects relative to historical P/E ratios, earnings and price and underweighting over extended sectors. Investment Styles FTJ FundChoice TM Wilshire Funds Management Wilshire starts with strategic long-term return forecasts, which represent consensus expectations by investors worldwide. They then derive this by considering the return expectations implied by the global allocation of capital across all major asset classes. The result is a set of strategic asset class forecasts that we can use to build a wide variety of asset allocation solutions. Wilshire maintains its own set of asset class forecasts, derived from our proprietary analytic tools and universes. By comparing their internal forecasts with those of the consensus portfolio, they are able to identify asset classes that are over — and undervalued. These represent opportunities that can be exploited through disciplined asset allocation strategies.
  12. 13. First Quadrant Portfolio Construction: Value based, long-term tactical asset allocation First Quadrant implements prompt responses to market pressures and economic conditions in order to add value and stabilize long-term total return, by reducing exposure in overpriced assets and increasing exposure in undervalued assets. Litman/Gregory Asset Management Portfolio Construction: Taking advantage of “fat pitch” opportunities Litman/Gregory describes “fat pitch” opportunities as an opportunity to tactically shift from their neutral allocation to a more attractive class, which they feel will have a major impact on the upcoming investment climate.

  13. 14. Dorsey Wright & Associates Portfolio Construction: Sector Rotation DW&A’s Sector Rotation Model increases exposure in sectors that are appreciating in price more rapidly than the broad market. During periods of potential market risk, preserving capital is achieved by using inverse broad market funds as a hedging strategy. Portfolio Construction: Tactical Allocation Model Numerous technical indicators show objective buy/sell signals for indexes, sectors and asset classes. However, decisions regarding asset classes and sector weights are discretionary and are influenced by field position and risk status. Investment Styles FTJ FundChoice TM
  14. 15. Iron Point Capital Management Investment Styles Portfolio Construction: Iron Point utilizes a Core/Satellite structure. Core structure is a long-range strategic allocation with a low cost, low turnover strategy consisting of index funds. Satellite structure uses some tactical asset allocation to take advantages of opportunities present in the market. The overall objective is to provide an overall low-expense portfolio designed for each client based on risk tolerance. FTJ FundChoice TM
