Marketimer © Portfolio Long-Term Objectives

The Marketimer © no-load model portfolios are designed to provide investors seeking aggressive, growth and balanced objectives with a strategic approach to investing in no-load funds.

Portfolio I is designed for investors with aggressive growth investment objectives. Such investors seek maximum returns and are willing and able to accept high levels of risk and volatility. Current income is not a factor in this portfolio.

Portfolio II is designed for investors with long-term growth objectives. Such investors seek to enhance the value of their capital over time. They are willing to assume a reasonable level of diversified market risk. Current income is not an important factor for such investors.

Portfolio III is designed as a balanced portfolio for current investment income along with capital preservation and modest growth. The portfolio is allocated between equities and fixed-income securities. This portfolio is best suited to investors nearing or already enjoying a retirement lifestyle.

Active/Passive Portfolio follows the long-term asset allocation guidelines of the Bob Brinker timing model ©, and invests USA equity allocations in the Vanguard Total Stock Market Index (VTSMX) which follows the Wilshire 5000 Index. The portfolio offers broad diversification, minimization of annual expenses, a very high level of tax efficiency for taxable investment accounts, and overall simplicity.
