NEW YORK and MORRISTOWN, N.J., March 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The MDE Group, a $1.3 billion wealth management firm, today announced that Founder and CEO Mitchell D. Eichen has been invited to speak at Barron's magazine's Winner's Circle Top Independent Advisors Summit on March 24, 2011 at The Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Fla. Mr. Eichen was honored as a Top 100 Independent Financial Advisor by Barron's in 2010, ranking in the top 25 for the fourth consecutive year.
At the conference Mr. Eichen will speak on a panel titled "Rethinking Long-Only Equity," about innovative methods to improve the risk-reward profile of equity investments. Due to uncertainty in the global economy and a variety of fundamental factors in the financial markets, investors will likely face an extended period of slow growth and heightened volatility punctuated by periodic crises. Mr. Eichen will discuss equity strategies designed for these new market realities, including The MDE Group's Risk 3.0™ Investment Solutions.
"Based on our market outlook, long-only equity investors may not be adequately compensated for the amount of risk they are taking," Mr. Eichen said. "Risk 3.0 Investment Solutions focus on enhancing areas of gains that we believe most probable while eliminating likely areas of losses. This results in a better risk-reward profile for investors and an attractive turnkey solution for advisors."
Risk 3.0 Investment Solutions are designed to replace long-only equity holdings and serve as core portfolio strategies that aim to reduce risk and increase the predictability and consistency of returns relative to a specific market outlook and risk tolerance. These solutions are available to high-net-worth and institutional investors.
Barron's Winner's Circle Top Independent Advisors Summit gathers the "nation's preeminent" independent financial advisors to facilitate a free-flowing exchange of information, ideas and insights through peer-based communication and an unwavering focus on best practices and winning wealth-management strategies.
