THE FIDERE STORY
Before the 2008 Financial Crisis, FIDERE's portfolio models were operated in a bank brokerage. Today, the bank no longer exists, but the Signature Five™ portfolio models have continued. The five portfolio strategies use Modern Portfolio Theory to measure both diversification and optimization, based on the Capital Asset Pricing Model. For your plans, these time-tested models seek to fund life goals with reduced volatility, and consistency of performance. For more information, connect to Portfolio Optimization Services.
FIDERE's Wealth Maximization service is delivered using a life planning approach found in the Life Cycle of Wealth™ book, by Aaron Kolkman. Originally published in 2010, the book was expanded in 2018-2019, and is being revised in 2023. FIDERE adheres to a comprehensive planning process with 2-3 initial meetings over a time period ranging from 2 weeks to 60 days.
