Portfolios

BIA Core Wealth Allocation Portfolio

The primary objective of the Core Wealth Allocation Model Portfolio is to protect against the loss of wealth
(defined as purchasing power) and to pursue the prudent growth of the portfolio’s purchasing power over time

While the Core Wealth Allocation “base” Model Portfolio is geared toward a moderate investor, the strategy can be adjusted and customized on an individual basis to suit any investor’s particular scenario and risk profile.

The strategy utilizes an active “tactical” asset allocation approach to address the core investment themes and outlook of Barnhart Investment Advisory. The primary investment vehicle is a blend of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), though no-load mutual funds may be utilized in the event that an appropriate ETF is not available to suit a given investment theme.

When changes are made to the base model portfolio accounts utilizing this strategy are reviewed to determine what changes (if any) are necessary depending on the customized and individual scenario. In addition, accounts are reviewed on a regularly basis (no less than quarterly) to determine what (if any) changes are necessary.

Barnhart Investment Advisory will charge an annual fee of 0.75% of assets under management designated to this strategy. BIA does not take custody of client assets or receive brokerage commissions.

BIA Global Strategy Portfolio

The BIA Global Strategy Model Portfolio seeks to provide long term growth of capital (purchasing power) by engaging in various investment strategies as deemed appropriate to address ever changing global market and political conditions.

This strategy is for investors who are willing to take on short term aggressive, speculative strategies for an appropriate portion of their overall investable assets. Depending on the investor’s risk tolerance and individual scenario an appropriate allocation may be up to 25% of investable assets.

The strategy utilizes an active management approach and engages in shorter term trading strategies to protect the long term “wealth” of the portfolio by maintaining and/or growing the portfolios purchasing power as appropriate. This portfolio seeks to address the long term economic and investment themes of BIA by aggressively pursuing shorter term market opportunities with concentrated positions and strategies. To this end, the portfolio will primarily utilize individual stocks and exchange traded funds to gain exposure to stock, commodity, currency, fixed income and inverse / short strategies. While the portfolio will not directly utilize leverage through the use of margin, it may utilize leveraged exchange traded funds. The portfolio will seek to protect capital and limit losses through the use of position loss limits, and a willingness to convert to and hold cash or short term treasury ETFs as appropriate.

Barnhart Investment Advisory will charge an annual fee of 1.25% of assets under management designated to this strategy. BIA does not take custody of client assets or receive brokerage commissions.
