How could your product or service help FPA member firms?

The goal of Innovative Portfolios funds is to provide additional income from option overlay strategies for clients while collecting dividends and interest. In a time of financial uncertainty, clients will be focusing even more on income solutions as they see the realized loss of growth in their investment solutions. Our funds can be used as part of an advisor’s overall allocation to fill the need for income with some growth through dividend stocks. Or, advisors can choose preferred stocks, which offer clients a lower growth, but less volatile, solution.

Do you have any resources you could share with the chapter? 

Innovative Portfolios provides CE webinars for our advisors on several different topics. We have hosted CFP® Board-certified virtual classes on volatility, using options and preferred stocks. We can offer small session virtual meetings with advisors to review our research and offer insight into the process of some of our proprietary strategies that we can implement through SMA accounts or funds. And we also can provide support to advisors who want to provide their clients with some historical perspective of the market—today’s current environment in relation to prior downturns—in order to help reassure clients for the future.

While investors are being bombarded with bad news and stock market commentary during this coronavirus outbreak, it may give advisors an opportunity to demonstrate thought leadership and provide clients with glimmers of market optimism.

Despite fears of a near-term bear market, historical patterns suggest that the S&P may deliver good returns in the coming decade. Not necessarily great, but pretty good. Read why Sheaff Brock thinks so here.
