"This is an exciting moment for our team as we continue to experience significant growth. We are thrilled with the rapid acceptance of the Global Tactical Series, as investors embrace our innovative and flexible approach to global investing," said William Grasty, Director of Institutional Marketing.

Kingfisher has pioneered the development of tactically managed, multi-asset portfolios for the SMA market. Having launched its flagship strategy in 2004, Kingfisher maintains one of the strongest track records in the industry. "We believe the era of unrestrained, Western credit-expansion and domestic-only investment strategies has come to an end," says Chief Investment Officer, Alex Miles. "Intelligent investors must construct global portfolios to provide their clients better growth and risk mitigation over the coming years."

According to Mr. Grasty, the Global Tactical Series provides Investors and their Advisors with all-in-one portfolio solutions, bringing the "endowment model" to the individual investor. Clients may select from four distinct global, multi-asset allocation profiles: Conservative, Balanced, Moderate, & Growth. Each portfolio strategy consists of a diversified, core asset allocation, complemented by a tactical component, allowing the Portfolio Manager to raise cash, rotate into "safe-haven" assets during periods of market stress, or overweight sectors or themes that may provide enhanced return opportunities.

One Advisor who utilizes the strategy as a portfolio solution for high-net-worth clients says, "The beauty of the Global Tactical Series is that it gives me the freedom to press the accelerator or tap on the brakes in the portfolio without having to reinvent the wheel. Our investors can seamlessly rebalance from one risk profile to another as market conditions or client circumstances dictate."

Following the stock market collapse in 2008, "tactical investing" regained popularity. Chad Frk, a Kingfisher Associate, points out that "most tactical strategies available in the market were created after 2008. Kingfisher's record is battle-tested, which provides a lot of comfort to Advisors looking to put capital to work on behalf of their clients."

Over the last decade, Kingfisher has developed thought leadership in identifying important trends in the global economy that are impacting investment decision-making around the world . Their investment strategies utilize the firm's proprietary top-down and fundamental research process to provide investors exposure to domestic and foreign, multi-cap equity, fixed income, and commodities, primarily through individual securities and ETFs.

Kingfisher Capital works with advisors, consultants and other institutional investors, as well as private investors. Its strategies are widely available. Please contact the firm directly to learn how Kingfisher can work with you and support your business.

Kingfisher Capital has provided unbiased, intelligent investing since 1989.
