We Believe Stock Prices Aren't Perfect

Alpha Architect provides best of breed asset allocation that mirrors premier strategies used by top family offices and institutions.

Although several robo-advisors offer passive portfolios, we believe in the benefits of active management

We Believe in Affordability

We will never deliver the lowest cost strategy in the market--that’s not our goal--but we do seek to be the best value in the market. We want to deliver high quality at half the cost of traditional active offerings.

An investor can certainly use a passive robo-advisor and pay an all-in fee of around 0.4%--not a terrible decision. However, you sometimes get what you pay for…

We seek to deliver downside protection, evidence-based stock selection, and asset allocation models that work. Passive robo-advisors don’t deliver any of these things!

We Believe Downside Protection Matters

Other advisors place you in buy-and-hold portfolios because there is nobody to blame when the portfolios suffer a major loss.

But market drawdowns can decimate a portfolio. It can take years, if not decades to recover

Our robust risk management system is designed to mitigate major market drawdowns and help preserve capital when markets correct.

Read our book and get informed about downside protection.

Simple Example: Why Downside Protection Matters

We Have a Better Option for Investors

Today, investors are often faced with two basic options:

1. Buy expensive advice from traditional advisory firms that seek downside protection and outperformance

2. Buy cheap advice from automated advisory firms that seek passive exposure to buy-and-hold portfolios

Investors deserve a better value proposition. - Alpha Architect Advisor offers an affordable actively managed solution with downside protection. Learn more about why we built an active robo advisor.
