Choosing an investment approach and money manager can be a daunting task. You don't want to make another mistake and you can't afford another 12 years like you just experienced.
In 5 minutes you will see how Provident Capital Management can help you manage market risk, lower the volatility in your portfolio and potentially increase your returns.
The concept and term of drawdown may be new to many investors but it is an important factor we at Provident use in our analysis of any investment strategy and within the portfolio as a whole. From a risk management perspective drawdown and the mathematics of winning and losing are closely related.
Drawdown is the decline in value from the peak to the trough over a specific time and is usually quoted as a percent. For example, if your investment amount was $100,000 and you lost $50,000 this would represent a 50% loss in value for your investments. Your account equity, the amount remaining, is $50,000 after the drawdown. You will need a gain of $50,000 to bring your investment back to $100,000.Read more: Drawdown - Why We Use It
Investing with an absolute approach is different than buying and holding. Typically it involves buying and selling investable instruments with a goal of positive returns every year regardless of how a relative benchmark is preforming. Our absolute investing philosophy centers around this concept and our mission is to bring viable strategies and options that seek absolute returns to the individual investor.
At the center of our absolute investment approach is risk management. As market participants we can not influence the returns any given investment will provide, that would require a crystal ball, but we can actively manage the risk our portfolios are subjected to.Read more: Absolute Investing Overview
