SaveDaily, Inc., (OTCBB: SAVY), a leading provider of low cost mutual fund investing platforms used by financial institutions, has announced today that it plans to enter the managed asset business using model portfolios sub-advised by a major national asset advisory firm. The business will be conducted by SAVYInvesting, the dba used by SaveDaily.com, Inc., a Registered Investment Advisor with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Greg Vacca, President, said, “Many investors that use wrap-fee programs offered by financial institutions are looking for ways to limit volatility in their portfolios and act in a timely manner to adjust their investment portfolios’ asset allocation. We believe this can best be achieved by using model portfolios of mutual funds or exchange traded funds (ETFs) advised by one or more sub-advisors that specialize in this management style.”
SaveDaily has hired Rod Halvorson and Richard Starr as Managing Directors. Mr. Halvorson will lead the marketing efforts, and Richard Starr will manage the model portfolios through its sub-advisor(s). Mr. Halvorson noted, “There are many financial institutions with managed asset programs that are trying to deliver consistent, uniform solutions to their investment customers having similar risk profiles, and this is an excellent way for them to achieve that goal and also achieve better risk-adjusted investment returns.”
The same technology and processes that SaveDaily.com, Inc. built to serve its small-balance investor services business will be utilized to support the SAVYInvesting business. This highly scalable technology enables the efficient omnibus accounting and recordkeeping functions. “This is a natural extension of our technology capabilities and will allow us to leverage our capital investment in a low-risk business we really understand,” said Vacca. It is anticipated these new asset management services will be introduced in the first quarter of 2013.
