Full-Discretion Managed Accounts (FDMA)

“Pure Alpha”

Full discretion Managed Accounts comprise 70% of Alaric’s business and is the predominant form of asset management selected by our clients. For years “Managed Account” was a long avoided form of assets control by industry professionals due to the less flexible nature of the investment process and heck of lot more administration. Advances in technology in recent years have significantly narrowed the gap between manages accounts and other forms of asset handling. Alaric Capital introduced and has urged clients to use this form of asset management since its inception in 2001.

Full Discretion, on the other hand, has historically been our way of producing the best pure alpha and clients whose choice is maximum absolute return have trusted Alaric for years to design, create, and execute the strategies it deems necessary to achieve those returns.  FDMA clients benefit from the full attention of the active portfolio management and a direct access to their separate accounts on the systems of both the independent broker/dealer and Alaric Capital.

Strategy

FMDAs are trader based on each client’s objectives (time invested & return sought) and risk tolerance regardless of the “full discretion” we may have over the account.

liquidity: In accounts that aim for liquidity we allocate predominantly in US/UK large and mid caps with sound financials. % of the funds are also directed into money market instruments with a small % left in cash.

growth: In accounts that aim for growth we allocate predominantly US/UK mid and small caps with good management, exciting new products, and established history and market presence. Small % is left in cash.

income: In accounts that aim for income we allocate between (a) dividend paying US/UK large and mid caps with sound financials, (b) corporate debt (preferably first lien), and (c) money market funds. Small % left in cash.

speculation: In accounts that aim for speculation we allocate predominantly in (a) selected event & growth driven US/UK/Emerging Markets large and mid caps, (b) sector and country ETFs , and (c) commodity specific stocks and ETFs. Small % is left in cash.

Portfolios are generally designed (sector and company specific) based on market trends and conditions. During negative downtrends (such as the one in ‘08) focus is put on capital preservation and shorter holding periods with no differentiation between small cap, large cap, and ultra small cap.


Non- Discretion Managed Accounts (NDMA)

“All about the Client”

NDMAs comprise about 20% of all accounts at Alaric Capital and were designed for our more sophisticated clients who have the expertise and prefer to be hands on in the investment decision process. It is the company’s duty to express opinion on the merit of the client proposed investment and point out all potential positive as well as negative consequences arising from the actual investment. Alaric Capital then uses its limited trading authorization and executes the strategy on behalf of the client in their own managed account. Again, all reporting is real time and provided by both the executing broker/dealer as well as Alaric’s fully integrated web site.

Alaric constantly monitors and reports the performance of all investments in NDMAs. As an added value our managers often devise and submit new appropriate strategies and investments for client consideration.

Strategy

In our NMDAs we advise the client to make investments based on their experience, objectives, and risk tolerance.  We recommend that no matter what the strategy is: it always be in liquid assets that can be independently valued. We help the client select reasonable expectations and we adjust and execute on them with a military discipline when they are met.

We treat NMDAs just like retirement accounts: emphasis is always put on capital preservation.
