We offer discretionary portfolio management services using MTC Quantitative Models. The total portfolio management includes both advice and portfolio management. No specific model will be utilized for all clients all the time. It is our firm’s intent to utilize these models in coordination with an assessment of the client’s risk profile, investment objectives and liquidity needs. For clients with multiple accounts managed by our firm it is possible that multiple models, with varying fee schedules identified in the agreement, would be used. This enables our firm to personalize a client’s portfolio at the client household level.
The assessment and potential changes to individual model investments is expected to be done on an ongoing basis – weekly for Ultra-Tactical Long & Short, biweekly for Tactical and monthly for Strategic. Over ten years of research and technology programming has been undertaken to implement disciplined portfolio management for each of these models and continued research will also be undertaken to maintain and improve these models in the future. The fee for these models is designed to be commensurate with the advice, model design complexity, and trading frequency for each of our models.
We intend to review client accounts on an ongoing and customized basis, from the initial client on-boarding and throughout the client relationship, all as part of the total agreement fee that is based on assets under management. The client profile assessment and model assignments by account will be documented for each client.
