Asbury Investment Management Portfolio Options

AIM uses widely traded Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs ) to invest. These are bought and sold with no commissions, and most of our market exposure is done with extremely low cost funds.

We offer three options:


Asbury Standard Portfolio

ETFs, Stocks, and Cash

The portfolio consists of four buckets of investments that are added and removed according to our individual models. Will normally be 100% equity exposure and will move over three steps to 0% equity exposure during declining markets.

1. Tactical Model 35%

Our most sensitive model looks to add and remove S&P 500 exposure according to our Asbury designed, disciplined algorithms.

2. Strategic Model 35%

Less sensitive than the Tactical Model, Strategic looks to add and remove S&P 500 exposure according to our Asbury designed, disciplined algorithms.

3. Correction Protection Model (CPM) 20%

Even less sensitive than the Strategic Model, we use Asbury Research CPM model to add and remove market risk. Exposure in this bucket is also determined by Asbury’s Cross Asset Relative Performance (CARP) Model.

4. Individual Stocks 10%

We use up to three individual stocks or ETFs, with a 3% allocation for each, that are taken directly from Asbury Research’s Stock & ETF Ideas. These positions are managed to avoid excessive volatility and will generally follow along with our Tactical model.


Asbury Leveraged Portfolio

ETFs, Stocks, and Cash

This portfolio is run exactly the same as the Asbury Standard Portfolio with the exception of the Tactical allocation. For this portfolio, the Tactical Model allocation is replaced with a 2 times leveraged exposure to the S&P 500 ETF. This means the portfolio would have an additional 35% exposure to the S&P 500 when compared to the Asbury Standard Portfolio.


Asbury Fixed Income Portfolio

Bond ETFs and Money Markets

This portfolio consists of four buckets of investments that are added and removed according to Asbury’s Cross Asset Relative Performance (CARP) Model. Focusing on fixed income and yield, the portfolio is based on the weekly parameters indicated by CARP and will generally be 100% invested in U.S. fixed income and money market funds.

1. Government Bonds ETF 30%

We use the CARP Model to determine if we should be in long term or short term government bonds.

2. Government Bond ETFs or Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETFs 30%

We use the CARP Model to determine if we should be in government bonds or investment grade corporate bonds. The Model is also used to determine if we should be in long term or short term bonds within these categories.

3. High Yield Bond ETFs or Investment Grade Corporate Bond ETFs 30%

We use the CARP Model to determine if we should be invested in high yield or investment grade corporate bonds. CARP is also used to determine if we should be invested in long term or short term bonds within these categories.

4. Closed - End Bond Fund ETFs 10%

Generally these funds purchase bonds and use leverage to enhance their returns. We invest in diversified bundles of these funds and then use CARP to determine when these funds should be replaced with money market funds during periods of high volatility.
