Baton_Green

Market Conditions have evolved, prompting innovative advisors to change how they manage their clients’ risk. Build offers a novel approach to portfolio construction and risk management, striving to do better in the worst market conditions, yet still offer the opportunity to see upside in the long term. Our rules based quantitative framework and innovative investment process employ the time-proven risk management benefits of fixed income while overlaying long-only call options to participate in the upside of the equities market. 

Our Strategy:

Indexed Risk Control™ is designed to protect portfolios from sharp downturns with benefits as the market recovers. Addressing the consequences of today’s evolving market conditions, our risk management framework is intended to be used as an alternative to traditional fixed income or an overall risk mitigation solution.

We believe Advisors and investors want to do the right thing. They just have the wrong tools.
