As with all investments, there are associated inherent risks including loss of principal. Stock markets, especially foreign markets, are volatile and can decline significantly in response to adverse issuer, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Sector and factor investments concentrate in a particular industry, and the investments’ performance could depend heavily on the performance of that industry and be more volatile than the performance of less concentrated investment options and the market as a whole. Foreign securities are subject to interest rate, currency exchange rate, economic, and political risks, all of which are magnified in emerging markets. The risks are particularly significant for ETFs that focus on a single country or region. The ETF may have additional volatility because it may be comprised significantly of assets in securities of a small number of individual issuers. Securities of companies with smaller market capitalizations tend to be more volatile and less liquid than larger company stocks. Smaller companies may have no or relatively short operating histories or be newly public companies. Some of these companies have aggressive capital structures, including high debt levels, or are involved in rapidly growing or changing industries and/or new technologies, which pose additional risks. Fixed income investments are subject to inflationary, credit, market and interest rate risks.
As market conditions fluctuate, the investment return and principal value of any investment will change. Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against a loss. There are risks involved with investing, including loss of principal. Before investing in any investment portfolio, the client and the financial professional should carefully consider client investment objectives, time horizon, risk tolerance, and fees.
All index, statistical and return information contained herein was provided by Bloomberg, PSN and Morningstar. An investment cannot be made directly in an index.
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) trade like stocks and are subject to investment volatility and the potential for loss. ETFs are securities that track an index, a commodity or a basket of assets like an index fund, but trade like a stock on an exchange; ETFs experience price changes throughout the day as they are bought and sold. Some actively managed ETFs may be used. The principal amounts invested in ETFs are not protected, guaranteed or insured.
Index providers periodically change their security classifications and BCM will analyze the changes and update the research and methodology of the effected strategies accordingly.
In October 2019, BCM Decathlon Conservative Tactics’ maximum equity limit changed from 80% to 50%. In Q3 2020, the methodology for BCM Decathlon was refined to trade dynamically rather than every 25 trading days. The Decathlon system is typically run and reviewed daily and typically ‘rebalances’ once a sufficient number of securities have fallen far enough in the rankings to justify the resulting trades. Decathlon’s process is subject to ongoing research and enhancement, with the goal of continuous improvement. The algorithms used by the system are usually optimized on a quarterly basis. Performance shown is based on the then current algorithms/system used.
Also in October 2019, the benchmarks for all three BCM Decathlon Tactics portfolios changed retroactively. BCM Decathlon Conservative Tactics changed its benchmark from the Dow Jones Conservative Allocation Index to 20% MSCI ACWI / 80% Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index; BCM Decathlon Moderate Tactics’ benchmark changed from 50% Dow Jones Moderately Conservative Allocation / 50% Dow Jones Moderate Allocation Index to 50% MSCI ACWI / 50% Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index; and BCM Decathlon Growth Tactics’ benchmark changed from Dow Jones Moderate Allocation Index to 70% MSCI ACWI / 30% Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Aggregate Bond Index. In September 2022, the benchmarks for all three BCM Decathlon Tactics portfolios changed on an ongoing basis. The BCM Decathlon Conservative Tactics strategy’s benchmark is 20% MSCI ACWI / 80% ICE BofA US Broad Market Index, the BCM Decathlon Moderate Tactics strategy’s benchmark is 50% MSCI ACWI / 50% ICE BofA US Broad Market Index, and the BCM Decathlon Growth Tactics strategy’s benchmark is 70% MSCI ACWI / 30% ICE BofA US Broad Market Index.
In March 2014, BCM changed the name of several strategies. BCM AlphaDEX Diversified Equity was previously named BCM AlphaDEX Diversified Equity Premium; BCM AlphaDEX Moderate Growth was previously named BCM AlphaDEX Moderate Growth Premium; BCM AlphaDEX U.S. Sector Rotation was previously named BCM AlphaDEX Sector Premium IDX; BCM Diversified Equity was previously named BCM Diversified Equity Premium; BCM Diversified Equity (Monthly) was previously named BCM Diversified Equity; BCM Growth was previously named BCM Growth Premium; BCM Growth (Monthly) was previously named BCM Growth; BCM Moderate Growth was previously named BCM Moderate Growth Premium; BCM Moderate Growth (Monthly) was previously named BCM Moderate Growth; BCM Global Sector Rotation was previously named BCM Sector Global Premium IDX; BCM International Sector Rotation was previously named BCM Sector International Premium IDX; BCM U.S. Sector Rotation was previously named BCM Sector Premium IDX; BCM U.S. Sector Rotation (Monthly) was previously named BCM Sector Rotation IDX.
The target allocations shown are buy targets only. Actual allocations will differ due to market fluctuations. Cash levels are estimated to be ~2% even when a model is “fully” invested and can be allocated to a money market or short duration (up to a 1-3 year) bond ETF. Signals calling for trades that are less than $500.00 or 0.25% of the account may not be completed if, at BCM’s sole discretion, they do not warrant incurring the trading costs.
The BCM investment strategies may not be appropriate for everyone. Due to the periodic rebalancing nature of our strategies, they may not be appropriate for those investors who desire regular withdrawals or frequent deposits. The portfolio managers maintain full discretion over all BCM strategies.

Stock — A type of security that signifies ownership in a corporation and represents a claim on part of the corporation’s assets and earnings. There are two main types of stock: common and preferred. Common stock usually entitles the owner to vote at shareholders’ meetings and to receive dividends. Preferred stock generally does not have voting rights, but has a higher claim on assets and earnings than the common shares.
Bond — A debt investment in which an investor loans money to an entity (corporate or governmental) that borrows the funds for a defined period of time at a fixed interest rate, commonly referred to as a fixed-income security. Bonds are used by companies, municipalities, states and U.S. and foreign governments to finance a variety of projects and activities.
Credit Risk — The risk of default on a debt that may arise from a borrower failing to make a required payment.
Duration risk — A measure of the sensitivity of the price of a fixed-income investment to a change in interest rates.
Annualized Return — The equivalent annual return an investor receives over a given period
Standard deviation — A measure of variability used in statistics. A low standard deviation indicates that the data points tend to be very close to the mean, whereas high standard deviation indicates that the data points are spread out over a large range of values.
Beta — A number describing the relation of its returns with those of the financial market as a whole. A positive beta means that the asset’s returns generally follow the market’s returns. A negative beta means that the asset’s returns generally move opposite the market’s returns.
