Investment Philosophy

PASSIVE CORE

Gold Investment Management employs a Passive Core approach, utilizing low cost exchange traded funds (ETFs) to implement the strategy. With attention to tax efficiency and low trading costs, Gold Investment Management constructs portfolios with multiple asset classes and broad geographic diversification in order to capture a wide range of global capital markets activity.

ACTIVE OVERLAY

The Active Overlay complements both the Passive Core and Value Tilt strategies by seeking to add alpha during both falling and rising markets. Due to Gold Investment Management’s independence and size, we have the ability to respond to market changes and rapidly alter course. We are constantly seeking opportunities to add value during rising and falling markets.

VALUE & INCOME TILT

Finding value is one of the cornerstones of Gold Investment Management’s approach to investing. Value strategies have been shown historically to give greater upside as compensation for bearing risk. We compliment the value approach by seeking securities that provide relatively high income in today’s low yielding market environment.

ASSET MIX MONITORING AND DYNAMIC REBALANCING

Gold Investment Management’s team of portfolio managers continuously monitors and dynamically rebalances portfolios to ensure that they are in line with their original weighting and strategic asset mix. For example, during dramatic market downturns we may take advantage of the extreme market pessimism by buying relatively cheap equity ETFs and selling relatively expensive fixed income ETFs.  Conversely, during euphoric upturns we may take advantage of the irrational exuberance by selling relatively expensive equity ETFs and buying relatively cheap fixed income ETFs.

RISK TOLERANCE

Gold Investment Management builds investment portfolios that suit an Investor’s individual risk tolerance.
