technical- and quant-based investing
Secure Wealth Management’s investment approach combines asset selection, based primarily on technical criteria, with quantitative risk management.
SWM works with BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, in our ETF portfolio construction and ESG ETF selection process.
We invest according to a range (typically 12-15) of technical trading signals. No investment decision will be executed unless the technicals suggest the timing is correct. We have a core / satellite structure, where each component is actively managed.

Risk management is at the heart of our investment approach
We employ network analytics techniques supplied by Financial Network Analytics, our strategic partner for risk management. Using FNA’s software, we track a broad range of statistical indicators for our ETF universe. These highlight entry- and exit-points for our ETF portfolios.
For every potential new ETF that we take into our portfolios, we will closely examine the correlation with the other positions and the impact on overall portfolio volatility, beta and Sharpe ratio. For all ETFs held in our portfolios we carry out ongoing correlation and volatility analysis to highlight changes in the time series of these variables.
HOW DO WE CHOOSE THE ETFs IN OUR PORTFOLIOS?
We only use replication ETFs, which are a simple and transparent instrument. We do not use any synthetic, leveraged or inverse ETFs.
