In addition to performance, here are three other reasons to invest with the Core model portfolio:
Diversification and Tax-efficiency: The Core model portfolio is well diversified, typically holding seven or eight sectors or industry group funds. Most funds are held 1 year or longer to reduce tax bite.
Modest Investment Requirements: The Core model portfolio can be used with as little as $5,000 in SEP-IRA or Keogh accounts or $25,000 in regular or other qualified accounts like Rollover, Roth, or Regular IRA.
Consistent Investment Process and Style: Mutual fund investors often worry about changes in fund management affecting returns. The Core model portfolio makes it less of an issue by using a consistent strategy to select sectors and industry groups using AlphaProfit’s ValuM investment process.
