AMB Proprietary Investment Portfolios
Since inception, we have believed in differentiating ourselves from regional Investment Advisory Firms by creating and implementing model portfolio and proprietary investment disciplines. Through our Investment Strategists and our Research Analysts we offer multiple disciplines. Our disciplines include:
- AMB Model
The AMB model seeks capital appreciation and income with an emphasis on sector allocation, by selecting the strongest companies in the strongest sector groups. The investment strategy is not governed by traditional investment boundaries such as growth, income or large cap. The portfolio has the flexibility to invest in Exchanged Traded Funds (ETFs) and American Depository Receipts (ADRs) and may use cash to mitigate risk in the markets.
- Core Equity Model
AMB’s Core Equity Model seeks to provide long term capital growth by investing in domestic stocks that appear to offer superior opportunities for growth of capital. The core exposure in equities blends value and growth styles of large cap companies. The portfolio has the flexibility to overweight sectors believed to outperform the index. The construction of the portfolio is based on top down approach.
- ETF Model
The ETF Model utilizes some of the most innovative and cost effective financial products of the last twenty years, which are Exchange Traded Funds (ETF). These products make participation in a variety of stock “baskets,” sectors and/or indexes possible during market hours with one tradable instrument.
- Fixed Income Model
The Fixed Income Model seeks a high and stable rate of current income, consistent with long-term preservation of capital.
- Growth & Income Model
AMB’s Growth Income Model invests in stocks that are trading below their intrinsic values and have the potential to increase their earnings and free cash flow based on our fundamental research. The strategy seeks both growth of capital and income. The portfolio has the ability to invest in large cap stocks of both domestic and international equities. Equity portfolio construction is based on a top down/bottom-up process, and has the flexibility to overweight or underweight sectors based on the overall market outlook.
- Select Growth Model
AMB’s Select Growth Model seeks capital appreciation through investment in Large Cap growth oriented companies. This strategy does not focus on sector allocation bur rather a bottom-up approach that looks for companies trading at a discount to our perceived growth rate.
- Select Income Model
AMB’s Select Income Model focuses on high yielding companies with coverage ratios that are sustainable based on our cash flow projections. The strategy is concentrated, holding fewer than 20 companies. The portfolio has the ability to invest in large cap stocks of both domestic and international equities. Equity portfolio construction is based on a top down/bottom-up process, and has the flexibility to overweight or underweight sectors based on the overall market outlook.
