MAI Indexes seeks to provide simplicity and automation in portfolio management, including selecting top momentum leaders during Bull markets, and automatically selecting defensive ETFs in Bear markets so you can focus on other important life matters. We simplify the science of investing.
The MAI Bull-Rider Bear-Fighter Index begins with an 80/20 equities/bonds allocation split typical of a classic Growth portfolio. Each of eight underlying momentum strategies selects one ETF (its momentum leader) for the portfolio to hold. The index automatically allocates 100% to defensive ETFs when a bear market is signaled by StormGuard-Armor.
See how MAI Indexes use genetic algorithms to eliminate hindsight selection bias, expand its universe of candidate ETFs, and build on its powerful Temporal Portfolio Theory roots to reduce market noise and improve the probability of making better momentum investing choices that lead to higher returns and lower risk, as detailed in our book "Conquering the Seven Faces of Risk."
At the very heart of momentum investing performance is its proficiency for extracting trend signals from noisy market data. Merlyn.AI employs the cross-disciplinary mathematics of electronic signal processing and matched filter theory, the very same mathematics that enables Ethernet, WiFi, and smartphones to perform so well.
Conquering the Seven Faces of Risk breaks new ground with its development of Temporal Portfolio Theory as a critically important extension to MPT. The new cross-disciplinary mathematics of electronic signal processing and problem segmentation clarify momentum signals and treat bear markets as the separate problem class they are. Risk avoidance is far superior to ordinary risk dilution.
