An Untraditional Approach to Portfolio Management


While no one can predict with certainty what’s coming next, there is a way to help plan for the unexpected—both the opportunities and the potential pitfalls.

A different kind of managed portfolio solution, Windhaven® offers clients a choice of three broadly diversified strategies consisting primarily of low-cost index exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Using a proactive approach, investment manager Windhaven dynamically adjusts portfolio allocations, striving to capture growth in rising markets while attempting to reduce exposure in declining ones.
