Our Expertise and Exclusive Focus is Managing Stock Market Risk for Our Clients

Daily Dynamic Defense in the S&P 500

Stock Market Declines:
Are Your Investments Prepared?

Stock market investors are taught to be patient, think long-term, and tolerate losses during market declines. For many investors, the pain of losing money is greater than the joy of gaining it.

To leverage stock market rallies while protecting you from market declines, we’ve developed a unique investment program called 3D Hedged Equity that:

  • seeks returns similar to the S&P 500 but with less risk
  • seeks to significantly reduce your risk from short-term losses
  • actively manages intraday declines in the S&P 500
3D Hedged Equity vs. Long-Short Equity Benchmark
* 3D Hedged Equity is comprised of actual 3D Defender and actual S&P 500 returns. This combination is a hypothetical example. Please see our disclaimer.
