Couture Financial achieves performance 104% greater than the S&P 500 over the last 12 plus years with Active Asset Investment Management.
Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) January 11, 2012
Consolidated composite reporting by Couture Financial shows that their Active Asset Investment Management program protected wealth during bear markets and significantly improved returns over the longer term. The chart below details Couture Financial’s historic asset investment management results by directly comparing three risk management styles, growth & income, balanced growth and maximum growth with the S&P 500 index. Couture Financial has calculated net daily performance including cash flow in and out, including all fees and expenses for active investment management clients who have been with the firm for 10 years or longer through September 30, 2011.
Most asset investment management firms subscribe to a buy and hold or strategic allocation strategy, which, particularly over the last decade, has proven to be devastating to many financial investment and savings portfolios. Couture Financial’s active asset investment management programs have worked very well; by reducing risk as much as 60% and outpacing performance of the S&P 500 by over 100%.
According to Mr. Phil Couture of Couture Financial, "an investor with whom we have been working for eight years, came to us having lost about 50% of his total investment assets with his previous buy and hold strategy management firm. Within the time he has been with us, we have been able to recoup about 30% of his total losses with substantially less risk and in spite of the recent ‘Bear Market.’ This is not an uncommon story and further information and verification is available by contacting us directly."
The overall concept is simple: actively protect wealth during bear financial markets, and proactively manage for growth during bull financial markets.
“We don't play games with other people’s money and the performance is clear," says Mr. Couture.
Couture Financial actively monitors both domestic and international economic and market statistics. Data is then extrapolated and probability calculated into actionable information driving tactics over the following couple of months. Objectives and risks are obviously considered based on the client's personal asset investment management strategy.
According to Mr. Couture, “we are accepting new clients who are interested in achieving a higher degree of wealth protection during bear markets and the potential for investment growth during bulls. We have a great story to tell and look forward to being of service to those in Sarasota or anywhere in America who desire active asset investment management.”

*Couture Financials Composite Data consist solely of accounts for clients that have been with the firm for ten or more years. Returns are consolidated composite client returns, net of all fees, applicable loads and expenses, and normally include the reinvestments of all dividends and distributions.

When this service is used inside a variable annuity or variable life policy, additional fees will apply. Exchange-Traded Funds trade on an exchange like an individual stock.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results or returns. The investment return and principle value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s portfolio, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original investment.

No current or prospective client should assume that the future performance of any specific investment or investment strategy (including the investments and/or investment strategies recommended by the adviser), will be profitable or equal to past performance levels. All investment strategies have the potential for profit or loss. Changes in investment strategies, contributions, or withdrawals may materially alter the performance and results of your portfolio. Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that any specific investment will be either suitable or profitable for a client’s investment portfolio. Historical performance results for investment indexes and/or categories generally do not reflect the deduction of transaction and/or custodial charges or the deduction of an investment-management fee, the incurrence of which would have the effect of decreasing historical performance results.
