Your clients are counting on you. Help protect them before the next market crisis.
Contact Flexible Plan to learn more.

Our new QFC Strategies go beyond business as usual, offering institutional-style investment strategies typically reserved for wealthy investors—each for the low advisory fee of only 35 basis points* after affiliated fund credit.

The QFC Strategies can help clients prepare for the next market correction with 2 levels of dynamic risk management at 1 low price:

1. The management within the Quantified Funds.
2. The allocation/rebalancing we do among the Quantified Funds 
within the QFC Strategies.

QFC Strategies: Core, Tactical, Alternative

The QFC strategies include 12 of FPI’s most popular core, tactical, and alternative strategies. And because these strategies invest solely in FPI’s subadvised Quantified Funds, our portion of the annual advisory fee for each strategy is just 0.35%* after affiliated fund credit.

New QFC strategies



How it works

QFC Political Seasonality Index

An aggressive, risk-managed strategy that uses political and seasonal factors to map the market topography for the coming year. Designed for investors looking for a nontrending, low-correlation tactical alternative as part of their diversified portfolio.

  • Uses daily changes in the Dow Jones Industrial Index along with specific political and seasonal factors (using data back to 1885) to determine buy and sell signals.
  • Uses our subadvised Quantified Funds to provide an additional layer of risk management over traditional asset classes.

QFC Systematic Advantage

A risk-managed strategy that seeks to employ the signals of the best tactical asset-allocation trading systems. Suitable for growth investors or as a part of a diversified portfolio of other low-correlated strategies of asset classes.

  • Uses a proprietary allocation software to select the top-performing systems from among 100+ third-party asset-allocation trading systems.
  • The strategy then follows the daily signals of the top systems and invests in equity funds based on the investment posture suggested by the selected systems.
  • Uses our subadvised Quantified Funds to provide an additional layer of risk management over traditional asset classes.

QFC Self-adjusting Trend Following

A risk-managed strategy that seeks to generate gains by taking advantage of uptrends and downtrends in the market. Suitable for aggressive investors or as part of a diversified portfolio of other low-correlated strategies or asset classes.

  • Generates signals by using the relationship among NASDAQ 100 moving averages, the rate of change of the moving averages, and the daily closing prices.
  • Takes one of four positions:
    • Income funds—no trend
    • NASDAQ 100—trending market
    • 2X NASDAQ 100—uptrending market
    • Inverse NASDAQ 100—downtrending market
  • Uses our subadvised Quantified Funds to provide an additional layer of risk management over traditional asset classes.

In addition to 2 levels of dynamic risk management, that low advisory fee also gets your clients these bonus services:

  • OnTarget Monitoring to help set and manage 
personalized financial expectations.
  • Access to our client support team to service accounts 
and answer client questions.

The QFC Strategy suite is available at E*TRADE Advisers Services, Schwab, and TD Ameritrade.

*35 basis points (bps) is the maximum for Strategic Solutions accounts at E*TRADE Advisers Services; the maximum at Schwab and TD Ameritrade is 50 bps due to their higher fund platform fees at these custodians. The maximum advisory fee billable at E*TRADE Advisers Services for FPI portion of the advisory fee is 100 bps; at least 65 bps is satisfied by crediting the subadvisory fees received by FPI from the Quantified Funds. Depending on the mix of the funds utilized, the available credit can exceed 65 bps but would never be less than 65 bps. Therefore, the FPI maximum portion of the QFC fee payable directly by clients cannot exceed 35 basis points. On other platforms, the maximum FPI portion of the fees billed to on QFC only accounts is 50 bps.
