HIA Meeting, Nov 14: Scott Juds — “True Sector Rotation: Breaking Through the Efficient Frontier?” (special 2 hour presentation)

Houston Investors Association Meeting, Nov 14

Scott Juds
Founder and President, SumGrowth Strategies 
Topic: “True Sector Rotation: Breaking Through the Efficient Frontier?”

Automated “True Sector Rotation” enables investors to concentrate on strategy and portfolio construction without the burdensome and confusing process of selecting, tuning, and interpreting indicator algorithms. Its underlying mathematics optimally extracts trend signals from market data by employing the cross-disciplinary sciences of electronic signal processing and matched filter theory. By owning only the trend leader, one can simultaneously improve returns and reduce risk. Although complex “under the hood,” it’s simple interface and automated trade alerts make it easy to use.

Attend this meeting to learn:
How “True Sector Rotation” changes the risk-reward game
How to build high performance, low drawdown portfolios
How a strategy-of-strategies further reduces investment risk
