Investment Pie Chart*

Investment Pie Chart - Bionic Wealth Management

*Pie chart allocations are for illustrative purposes only. Actual portfolios may differ for each client and may change at any time. Normally, minimal cash positions are held.

Equities

Broad global equity exposure may be fulfilled primarily through tax-efficient, low-cost ETFs. Individual stocks may be purchased to augment this equity exposure in an attempt to increase returns. We do not emulate global indexes and are likely to emphasize value-oriented, U.S.-based investments.

Fixed Income

Fixed income allocations consist primarily of institutional-share mutual funds, no-load funds, ETFs and closed-end funds. The current mix of funds offers relatively high yields and some protection against rising interest rates. In exchange for higher yields, these allocations may possess slightly higher credit risk than typical aggregate bond indexes.

Alternatives

Alternatives may include strategies such as risk arbitrage, long/short equity and managed futures through structures including mutual funds and ETFs. Commodities, precious metals, MLPs, or REITs may be purchased through mutual funds and ETFs. Alternatives are chosen only when they are deemed to offer appropriate risk/return profiles and are suitable for the investor.

Discussion of Investing Risks

The value of an investment may decrease as well as increase. An investor may not receive the amount initially invested, and income, if any, may fluctuate. The value of an investment may be affected by a variety of factors. These factors include economic and political developments, interest rates and foreign exchange rates, as well as issuer-specific events. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future returns.

Potential clients should primarily consider and rely on their understanding of their personal investment constraints and objectives, among other things, before selecting Bionic Capital as an investment advisor. Some of Bionic Capital’s investment strategies are only appropriate for investors with a long-term time horizon. Contact Dean Erickson, CFA at 310-734-8500 for a discussion of risks.
