Arlington Wealth Management (“AWM”), utilizes a proactive asset allocation strategy (“PAAS”) in advising its clients. PAAS combines quantitative-based buy, sell and reallocation indicators, with qualitative research, selecting from US and global securities, in seeking to achieve attractive risk-adjusted returns over a long-term investment horizon. As with any investment strategy, AWM has in the past, and may in the future, modify the investment approach and portfolio parameters of PAAS in any manner that it believes is consistent with the strategy’s overall investment objective.
In that light, the following material modifications were made to PAAS: in February 2009 (creation of Universe Trend and Cash Comparison Indicators for trend analysis), June 2009 (creation of Long-Term Momentum Indicator for trend analysis), September 2009 (expanded Asset Class Ranking System and started PAAS computerized testing), December 2009 (creation of Global Indicator Set for buy and sell signals), April 2010 (inception of PAAS Computer Model), October 2010 (implementation of Tactical Indicators and Signals for short term risk management), January 2011 (modify Global Sell Signal with additional criteria including pattern determination), June 2011 (close Global Signals with stop loss criteria), September 2011 (inception of PAAS Long Only Model), May 2012 (modify Global Buy Signal wait period to enhance signal timing), October 2012 (first use of PAAS Stock Model), November 2012 (implement ETF replacement criteria), December 2012 (additional historical data for Cash Comparison Indicators), November 2015 (modify Global Buy Signal with additional criteria), June 2016 (modify Tactical Sell signal criteria), May 2018 (expanded Asset Class Ranking System, Tactical Asset Class Selling, Mini-Buy signal implementation), 2019 added Selling Climax signal, the Recession Warning Model, and in 2021 added our Market Valuation Model.
None of the enhancements to PAAS modified the objectives. Rather, as noted previously, AWM made these changes to seek to enhance PAAS. Each change, individually or in the aggregate, might have impacted the performance of PAAS (either positively or negatively, depending upon the efficacy of the changes(s)) after their implementation. For more information regarding these material modifications, please contact AWM at 847-670-4030.
While PAAS is AWM’s primary growth-focused investment strategy, AWM also offers other growth and proactive income strategies.
