Austin, Texas (PRWEB) March 26, 2013
Halbert Wealth Management, Inc. (HWM) is pleased to announce that the Purcell Advisory Services Ultra Select Program has been added to its list of recommended managed account strategies within HWM’s innovative AdvisorLink® Program.
HWM President and CEO, Gary Halbert, commented, “In today’s uncertain markets, many investors are wary of getting back into stocks so they end up missing growth and income opportunities. In Ultra Select, Purcell’s Investment Team has created a tactical approach that seeks to participate in upward price trends while moving to the sidelines during down markets.”
Using trading signals licensed from third-party money managers, Ultra Select’s ultimate goal is to match S&P 500 Index returns during rising equity markets with less risk. Current signals are based on a quantitative formula using mean reversion techniques and statistical probability. Accounts are either invested 100% in an S&P 500 Index fund or 100% in a money market fund. Ultra Select also limits risk by being in a money market fund approximately 80% of the time.
