who we are

Active Fund Strategies is a premiere technical-analysis research firm that has packaged its proprietary mutual-fund scoring system with a well-researched, active fund-management strategy to provide financial advisors with a proven approach to building and managing client portfolios successfully.
Investors used to pick financial advisors based on trust.  After the last bear market of 2008, many investors, including the younger and more technology-oriented, demanded far more than that.  The AFS system has an extensive track record that shows your clients, step by step, how you can create and manage winning portfolios for them. 
AFS uses extensive data analysis to create a report card that identifies the top 11 mutual fund features that most readily predict mutual fund success. It allows financial advisors to move beyond past performance – always a poor predictor – and design forward-looking, winning portfolios.  These report cards serve as a mutual fund focus list for many subscribers and as a second opinion for everyone.
Buy-and-hold strategies left the many retirees who held fast during the 2007-2008 market squeeze with losses they may never recoup during their lifetimes. Instead, AFS has designed a proprietary technical analysis that, combined with a responsive strategy for fund management in both bull and bear markets, allows advisors to protect billions in client portfolios.
Active Fund Strategies receives endorsements from managers and advisors at many of the top firms.
