SCIENTIFICALLY ENGINEERED "Strategic" Portfolios
SEM's AmeriGuard (TM) and Cornerstone Portfolios are a blend of strategic & dynamic models utilizing some of the top fund companies in the country. AmeriGuard focuses on American Funds and Vanguard, while Cornerstone focuses on Biblically Responsible Investments. Each portfolio is designed to create a more risk-efficient exposure to the specific return & risk objectives relative to a passively managed index or fund available individually at each fund company. For more details, go to our AmeriGuard or Cornerstone pages.
The Art behind the Science
Investing is far too often more art than science. Over the last 28 years, SEM has applied our Scientifically Engineered Models to everything possible, including the most important question in the entire investing process –how should the assets be allocated. There are thousands of questionnaires out there, but SEM has found our simple 10 question survey steers investors towards the portfolio that best suits their financial personality. We discussed this process in our webinar, “Converting Biases to Profits”.
