Managing Structured Investments

Blue Bell Private Wealth Management monitors on a daily basis proprietary models of listed structured investments which provide:

  • Positive returns during flat markets,

  • Built in buffer against downward market movements,
  • Ability to invest at discounts to intrinsic value with short maturity dates

  • Meet clients’ financial objectives including time horizon, risk tolerance, income, and principal preservation
  • Provide structure, stability, and predictable flow of capital
  • Reduce market volatility
  • Minimize significance of point-to-point transactions
