Understand the Difference Between Dynamic and Static Trading Models

Traditional advisors still use outdated static investment models to manage your investments. – We believe this is the incorrect approach.

Implementing dynamic investment models requires sophisticated portfolio management accounting systems synchronized with each account to capture and update daily market pricing actions. Little House’s investment platforms capture nightly price actions to automatically update our investment models, providing uniformity, in and among, our clients’ accounts. An example of both the static and dynamic investment approach is highlighted by Investors X and Y below.

Day 1, Investor X invests $1,000,000 and 50% is invested in stock A while the remaining 50% is invested in stock B. Overnight, stock A doubles, now representing 66.67% of the portfolio while stock B represents 33.33%.

Day 2, Investor Y invests $1,000,000 and 50% is invested in stock A while the remaining 50% is invested in Stock B (the static model). So now, Investor X and Y owns 66.67% and 50% of stock A, respectively. Consequently, the Portfolio Manager decides to modify the position in stock A to now represent 60% of the portfolio. The trades are executed for Investor X and Y; Investor X sells (6.67%) of stock A while Investor Y purchases 10% of stock A. The net result, both X and Y Investor now hold 60% of stock A.

Assume Day 1 from above, Overnight, Little House’s dynamic portfolio management systems automatically adjust the model(s) for stock A’s price action that now represents 66.67% of the portfolio.

Day 2, When Investor Y invests $1,000,000, 66.67% (not 50%) is invested in stock A while the remainder of 33.33% (not 50%) is invested in stock B (the dynamic model). Now, Investor X and Y both own the same percentage of stock A & B, or 66.67% and 33.33%, respectively.

Why is offering dynamic investment models so important?

Applying static models across thousands of accounts with the same investment objective will result over time in different percentages of stocks, bonds, etc. being owned in those accounts as well as variations in investment performance across those accounts. The lack of consistency makes research driven portfolio actions obsolete since the traders are buying and/or selling the same securities across the entire account base. How can a Portfolio Manager recommend trimming (selling) a stock when the stock is being purchased (bought) in other clients’ accounts?
