Our Six Step Investment Process
Wisco’s Investment Process – we do 100% of this work in-house. It is not outsourced to a corporate office management team, a mutual fund company or brokerage firm to select your investment strategy with their products or recommendations. We are fiduciaries and we determine the best vehicle possible to get returns for our clients.
1. Collect & Analyze Data:
We assess your risk tolerance and plan how best to realize your financial goals utilizing Money Guide Pro. Wisco maintains a database with over 25-years of performance history for a wide variety of assets.
2. Select Asset Classes
In selecting asset classes, we consider two primary criteria: Can it improve the overall diversification of our portfolios and are we able to make a cost effective, liquid investment in the asset class?
3. Forecast Potential Returns & Risk:
While studying historical relationships between returns and risk is an important part of our investment process, this analysis is incomplete without also incorporating a view of what the prospects are for these asset classes in the future.
4. Security Selection:
We look to invest in securities that are cost effective and perform in line with an underlying index orasset type.
5.Create Customized Portfolios:
In this step, we marry our future forecasts & historical data in an optimization program.
6. Implement, Monitor & Adjust:
We rebalance our client portfolios every six months. However, we are monitoring the results and thinking about how we can improve the returns of these portfolios every day.
