San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) October 29, 2012
EQIS Capital today announced it’s new Highest Conviction(tm) Separately Managed Accounts. Designed and managed entirely by EQIS, Highest Conviction(tm) portfolios are intended to harvest the alpha-generating capacity of active managers’ top ideas. Research conducted by Harvard University, the London School of Economics and Goldman Sachs has shown that, while mutual funds tend to underperform their benchmarks, the top ideas of active managers actually can and often do add substantial value.1
“We’ve seen widespread failure with traditional wealth management strategies, such as mutual funds and buy-and-hold, and we’re terribly concerned about conventional fixed income as a risk mitigator in a rising interest rate environment,” says EQIS’ Chief Financial Strategist, Dr. Rob Brown, CFA. “Highest Conviction(tm) portfolios are our response to these problems.” Highest Conviction(tm) SMAs are available across the spectrum of risk, from Aggressive to Conservative, and are available in both hedged and unhedged, and taxable and tax-advantaged constructions.

EQIS’s mission is to reinvent the wealth management industry with one powerful, integrated platform designed to maximize advisor productivity while giving them maximum flexibility in the creation of portfolios to help meet the unique needs of their clients.
