Low Risk, Low Volatility  Disclosures

​​Your investment advisor may recommend third-party money managers who utilize investment strategies designed to minimize portfolio volatility and reduce the risk of declines in account values. Like any other investment strategy, this approach entails risks, including the risk that client accounts can still lose value and the risk that a defensive position may, at any given point in time, prevent client accounts from appreciating in value.
We describe the Horter investment management platform by using the terms "Low Risk" and "Low Volatility" to emphasize the strategies employed by our money managers. However, notwithstanding the risk management strategies employed by these money managers, certain investment portfolios employed by our money managers present a greater degree of investment risk than others depending upon the performance of the underlying securities. We typically refer to these strategies as "Moderate Risk" and "Moderate Volatility". Such performance can be impacted by a number of risk factors, including but not limited to (i) the level of price volatility (equity securities generally have greater price volatility than debt securities, (ii) changes in interest rates, and (iii) the ability of the manager to purchase or sell a security in a timely manner at desired prices.
