Take Advantage of the ETF Portfolio Advantage®.
In 2004, our Investment Team adopted the strategy of using Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) in portfolio design, making us one of the first trust companies in the United States to recognize their lower cost and tax efficiency. Since then, we’ve been recognized by Forbes and Morningstar for investment strategies that manage both risk and return.
Our #1 priority is to reduce short-term volatility and risk in down periods, which allows an actively managed approach to achieving your clients’ long-term financial goals. And yours.
Our Investment Philosophy: Fewer, Smarter Decisions.
Your advisors have direct access to our portfolio managers for consulting and case management. We run scenarios of prospective members by your advisors, look at a prospect’s current holdings and offer guidance on opportunities, as well as provide full-service support to you, your advisors, and your members.
Unlike some money managers who do periodic mechanical rebalancing, Members Trust Company manually rebalances investments, taking advantage of certain points in the market, while also ensuring target diversification and minimizing risk.
Private Managed Account.
Since some members have highly appreciated stock or other investments they may not want to liquidate, or for which they should consider strategies to address income tax consequences, Members Trust Company will build a customized portfolio around existing stocks and model charitable trust solutions to minimize income taxes.
Members Trust Company offers over a decade of success using ETF Model Portfolios to meet various objectives and lifecycle needs.
