See for yourself why EMAP is the fastest-growing investment management program in America -- solid academic research is the key.
The Benefits of EMAP are Proven and Time-TestedThanks to EMAP's sophisticated design, you enjoy three vital benefits that are important to every investor:
- Lower Investment Risk
Smart investors know that investing isn’t merely about earning returns -- it’s equally about controlling risk. Those who ignore risk do so at their own peril, as those who rushed into tech stocks in the 1990s can attest.
That’s why EMAP is designed first and foremost to manage your investment risks. We do this through extensive diversification -- far greater than typical investors are able to obtain on their own. Each EMAP model features as many as 19 separate asset classes and market sectors -- and each of those typically contain thousands of securities through a market-based, not manager-based, investment approach. Of course, diversification does not assure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of investment losses. There are no guarantees that a diversified portfolio will outperform a non-diversified portfolio.
The goal is simply to avoid significant losses and generate consistent returns that are competitive with the overall financial marketplace, so that it’s easier for you to achieve your investment goals.
- Lower Investment Costs
EMAP uses only no-load institutional funds and exchange-traded funds that feature astonishingly low costs. Our clients typically pay less than 0.4% per year for their investments -- a tiny fraction of the 2% to 3% that investors pay for ordinary retail mutual funds. Even after including our management fee, most consumers find themselves saving money. By lowering your costs, EMAP helps you put more of your money to work for you.
- Consistent, Competitive Strategy
EMAP’s extensive diversification enables you to share in the returns offered by the broad financial markets. By managing risks and costs across asset classes, your portfolio can be more competitive within the marketplace. This is just one more benefit that can support you in achieving your investment goals. Lower Risks. Lower Costs. Competitive Strategy. It’s a great combination. And it’s available only from EMAP.
