Daily trading of an account [for generating income] doesn’t fit into the plan for stabilizing a portfolio.
Costa Mesa, California (PRWEB) September 29, 2015
In the wake of the past month’s unsteady world markets, Sid Miramontes of Miramontes Capital detailed his team’s strategy for designing portfolios with minimal risk of loss from volatility.
The single most important strategy when tempering a portfolio against fluctuations, according to Miramontes, is anticipating and preventing the need for stock trading for income generation. The team’s plan accomplishes this through a “segmented portfolio” characterized by the following preventative methods:
- Three Months of Cash — To avoid unnecessary stock trading during short-term down turns, Miramontes Capital always ensures three months of liquid assets be available as a buffer.
- Portfolio Stabilizers — During this time of rising interest rates, Miramontes advises investing in short-term bonds to provide a portfolio with long-term stability.
- Dividend Mutual Funds — Miramontes explained the usefulness of funds which pay steady dividends. This provides clients with a source of steady income while increasing portfolio stability and minimizing the need for daily trading.
- Attention to Sectors — Miramontes explained the importance of staying abreast of the markets in order to identify and invest where growth is most likely. His team identifies REITS, energy, tech, and pharmaceuticals as current areas with potential for growth.
- Annuities for Added Security — Finally, the team outlined that certain clients may benefit from the added assurance of investment products, or annuities. This ensures that even serious and sustained market fluctuations won’t affect the principal that is invested in an annuity, protecting a client’s income and death benefits, enabling beneficiaries to fully benefit from their account.
“Daily trading of an account [for generating income] doesn’t fit into the plan for stabilizing a portfolio,” Miramontes explained. The team also emphasized that personalization is crucial for a successful portfolio, and that a long-term strategy with a segmented approach isolates volatility while allowing “us time to make a decision that best fits our clients’ needs.”
With a mission to help clients achieve their most meaningful lives, Miramontes highlighted that his approach has “always been a long-term one.”
