Good reasons for rule-based asset management

Many investors are guided by emotions in their investment decisions. Those who follow fixed rules achieve a higher return.
Avoid mistakes and keep cool
Intuitively understandable and comprehensible
Protect assets in crises
Generate potential for additional returns

Rule-based vs. Traditional and Quantitative

The rule-based investment is based on clear rules. Thus, emotions and uncertain forecasts are avoided. Unlike complex quant models, rules are defined before implementation and are no longer changed. They are intuitive and easy to understand for customers.

These differences versus other approaches increase the robustness and intelligibility of rule-based investments.

How does this work?

Mr. Smith is CEO of a private bank and has opted for rule-based asset management. See for yourself why and how he could implement the strategy together with Dufour Capital rapidly and without complications.

The Dufour Capital Method

We invest exclusively in transparent and liquid ETF, index funds or equities. Our investment regulations are based on scientific and evidence-based principles and are tested extensively during the development phase. Suitable rules are universally applicable and provide robust results over various market phases and investment classes. We combine different rules into a balanced "set of rules", which are used to implement the investment objectives, such as protection against major losses or potential yield. Through daily risk management, we ensure compliance with the risk and investment limits.

In the lead thanks to continuous research

Dufour Capital invests continuously and intensively in the research & development of rule-based asset management. Together with the "VZ VermögensZentrum" we have described the fundamentals and various application examples for private and institutional investors in two books - simple and comprehensible.
