Auour Investments Named Top Guns Manager by Informa Investment Solutions

“Once again, we are thrilled to be recognized by Informa Investment Solutions” stated Joseph Hosler, Managing Principal of Auour.  “We take great pride in our long-term performance and our leadership position in Regime-Based Investing, which utilizes our internally developed risk detection process.”  

Through a combination of Informa Investment Solutions’ proprietary performance screens, PSN Top Guns ranks products in six proprietary categories in over 50 universes. This is a well-respected quarterly ranking and is widely used by institutional asset managers and investors.

Top Guns firms are awarded a rating ranging from one to six stars, with the number of stars representing continued performance over time. Auour Investments was named a Top Gun with a star rating of 3, meaning the Instinct Global Equity Levered strategy ranked among the top ten performers within its universe, based on returns for the three-year period ending December 31, 2017.

The Global Equity Levered strategy, as a member of the Instinct™ Family of Downside Protection ETF strategies, utilizes the Auour Regime Model™ to detect changes in global risk appetite and adjust allocations accordingly.  The Instinct™ Family of Downside Protection ETF strategies can provide tactical, as well as, core functionality within a client’s investment needs, aiming to mitigate losses in down markets while capturing most of the market’s positive returns.
