New ETF-Based Dynamic Investment Type
Catapults World of Investing into 21st Century

The Most Significant Change to How We Invest in Decades

Tampa, FL., May 2018.  The National Association of Online Investors (NAOI) has released the specifications for a new approach to portfolio design, and investing in general, called Dynamic Investment Theory (DIT) that changes how we invest at a fundamental level.

Developed based on five years of research and development, DIT sets the logic and rules for the creation of a next-generation investment type called Dynamic Investments (DIs) that are able to automatically change the Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) they hold based on a periodic sampling of market trends. By doing so they are “market sensitive” and capable of producing returns that are multiple times higher than standard MPT-based portfolios in use today - with lower risk, absolute protection from market crashes and no active management required.

As an example, the simplest DI created by the NAOI that rotates between only Stock and Bond ETFs using DIT methods earned an average annual return of +26 % for the decade from 2008 to 2017 with less risk than simply holding a bond mutual fund. 

DIT was developed by the NAOI to be a superior alternative to Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT), today’s "settled science" approach to portfolio design. The problem is that MPT it was introduced in 1952. Markets have evolved significantly since then (as illustrated in the following chart) while MPT methods have barely changed at all and they simply don’t work in today’s markets. 


According to NAOI President, Leland Hevner, “There comes a time in the life of any system, whether it be biological or technical, when it must evolve to survive in a changing environment. This time has come for the world of investing as MPT methods are increasingly unable to cope with modern markets. DIT is the adaptation needed for investing to "evolve" and remain viable now and well into the future.

The NAOI teaches both individual and professional investors how to design, implement and manage Dynamic Investments and also consults with financial organizations to enable them to increase revenues, capture market share and gain a massive competitive advantage by offering innovative DIT-based solutions.
