Are You Active?

By Matt Schreiber – WBI President and Chief Investment Strategist

Staying active is just as important to your financial well-being as it is to your health. With market risk a constant threat to your capital, we’re firm believers that having an active management approach is a pillar of investment success.

At WBI, it’s simple. Protecting your capital is our number one priority. Getting all the return doesn’t mean much if your capital base isn’t protected from devastating losses like we’ve seen before. That is why we combine smart security selection with unwavering risk protection, to give investors the best chance of achieving their financial goals.


In our experience, human emotion can derail an investor’s financial success. WBI’s quantitative management system removes the danger of human emotion from the investing equation. Our uniquely active process is designed to keep us invested when market trends are favorable or to build cash when conditions indicate a high degree of risk with a low probability of success. We believe we have changed the active equation: Protect capital and maintain high-quality security selection coupled with the compounding power of dividends.

The time is now to put emotion aside. Tame the Bear. Run With the Bull.®
