Toews was founded in 1995 on the idea that protecting one’s assets is the first priority and growing them is a close second. In an attempt to achieve market returns and avoid extreme losses, we build strategies with two imperatives. First, we assume worst-case scenarios will potentially happen and attempt to capitalize on significant market declines. We simultaneously assume that best-case scenarios will potentially happen. Our strategies are positioned to attempt to gain if markets stretch higher but are built to attempt to protect if markets fall. Our process is not primarily based on subjective or predictive methodology. It has used a heavily researched and price-reactive algorithms that provide signals for investment exit and re-entry points.
Toews also runs the Behavioral Investing Institute which specializes in the training of investment advisors in the practical application of Behavioral Finance. Our training program guides advisors from framework training to implementation using tools that attempt to change investor’s default emotional response to various behavioral investing challenges that they may confront.
