In effort to help investors who seek to successfully navigate complex market conditions, we have developed investing strategies focused on proactively protecting capital while actively seeking growth.
The vision originated during the 1987 stock market crash. With the opinion that incurring financially devastating losses due to market volatility is unnecessary, we initiated a plan to create a strategy with the main objective to protect capital during market downturns.
Following the 1987 stock market crash, Vance Howard, CEO of Howard Capital Management and Portfolio Manager, sought to find a proactive way to mitigate downside risk. His years of research yielded a disciplined and systematic investment process now called, the HCM-BuyLine®. The HCM-BuyLine® is an emotionless, mathematical process driven by market ratios. The Funds use the HCM-BuyLine® to determine when to be in the market and when to be out of the market.
Vance has offered professional money management through Howard Capital Management, Inc. since 1999. He specializes in research, development, and implementation of various types of trading systems. After years of research, he developed a disciplined, systematic, and non-emotional method of investing that is designed with the goal of protecting our clients' assets during market declines. Vance proactively manages all the Funds.
