For investors who want a packaged option, First Mid has developed a line of model portfolios to choose from, ranging from low- to high-risk levels.
We use the following proven methodology when constructing investment options to ensure you meet your financial goals:
Build Asset Allocation Models
After reviewing current market trends and economic outlook, we design efficient allocations using multiple asset classes in order to provide the best balance of risk and return, tailored to your needs. These asset allocation choices are important, having shown to account for approximately 90% of a portfolio’s performance over time.
The First Mid Trust Investment Committee chooses institutional fund managers to fill each component of your asset allocation. Managers are screened and hired based on who we believe has demonstrated the ability to add value. Because we treat asset allocation as a distinct step in the process, we can combine managers in ways that help avoid unintentional biases in the portfolio (i.e., toward growth or value).
Monitor Progress and Adjust as Needed
The First Mid Trust Investment Committee proactively and continuously monitors each element of the program to ensure your model account stays true to the original investment philosophy over time. Given that performance will vary among asset classes over time, we automatically rebalance your portfolio to your objective’s target asset allocation.
