After years of embracing the technology co-pioneered by Brandon H. VanLandingham, Chief Investment Officer, and John G. Gillespie, President, of Access Financial Group, Inc.(AFG), the time is right to make the tried and tested Access Capital Trending System™ (ACTS) available to other advisors. This proprietary process has earned recent attention and respect at AFG. Gillespie, a veteran in the financial industry for 28 years, says, “Money managers have a strong buy discipline but often struggle with their sell discipline.”
Understanding advisors would like to be better prepared for the possibility of avoiding the next potential major correction, Gillespie and VanLandingham believe they have the process that can help them do just that. As a result of this conviction and the technology in hand, Access Capital Management, LLC, a third party money management firm based in Oklahoma, has launched its institutional advisor division.
Access Capital Management (ACM) does not believe in buy and hold investing. Instead, they take an active portfolio approach and believe there are “times to be in the market and times to be out.” Access Capital Management’s portfolio managers identify opportunities within strong performing groups/sectors throughout the world markets utilizing a proprietary ranking system. Using a flexible investment strategy called ACTS Model Portfolios, ACM’s analysis enables the portfolio managers to make difficult investment decisions such as when, where, how, and in what to invest. The quantum process includes: Style Freedom (moves portfolios to 100% cash in times of market down turn, helping to minimize losses and potentially reduce the drawdown effect); Strategic Portfolio Design (adjusts and changes portfolios as market dynamics change, allowing ACM to pursue different opportunities during changing market conditions); and Technical Analysis (monitors each security on a daily basis utilizing the trending system, ACTS -The Management team’s process is based on technical/trend patterns. ACM analyzes historical security price movement, relative strength, momentum indicators as well as exponential and simple moving averages to determine whether to buy, sell, or hold a particular security.)
