An Alternative Investment, by definition, is not one of the three traditional asset types—stocks, bonds and cash—and generally consists of tangible assets. Such as precious metals, art, wine, antiquities, real estate, commodities, private equity, hedge fund and venture capital. This strategy allows reduced overall investment risk through diversification and however, is generally reserved for high-net-worth clients due to their complex nature.
Concentrated Portfolio Strategy
Many portfolios are based on diversification which is mainly focused to reduce risk for the investment.
Conversely, a concentrated strategy is focused on positive returns. L&R has designed a Concentrated Portfolio Strategy for those clients whose lifestyles and futures align with a more aggressive investment plan with short-term trades and using 200% exposure.
Cycle Equity Program
“History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme.” – Mark Twain
Historical data on market fluctuations has proven over many decades that the average year is split into ‘favorable’ and ‘unfavorable’ periods within the equity market. A more favorable period is roughly November to May while the unfavorable period is usually May to November. Understanding these cycles allows investors to strategically buy and sell reducing market volatility and risk.
L&R Investment Management LLC’s most popular strategy is the Cycle Equity Program which utilizes the cyclical trends. This was designed to reduce equity exposure during the more unfavorable period allowing the investment gains to be harbored in an alternatively more conservative environment until the equity trends become favorable. These gains may be best recognized in tax deferred accounts. However, the investor should not rely on past performance to predict future results.
Bond Sector Strategy
Bonds are considered less risky than stocks because bond prices have historically been more stable and because bond issuers promise to repay the debt to the bondholders at maturity.
L&R’s strategy to reduce risk to your investment is to rotate between the three components of the bond market.
With an eye toward capital preservation, our Bond Sector Strategy is a program designed to allow the investor to benefit from interest earned on bonds and from capital gains. The investment account is actively moved usually 3 to 4 times a year between corporate bonds, higher quality or government bonds with emphasis on holding high yield bonds as much as possible.
