What We Do

Watchpoint Analytics is a proprietary risk management engine that utilizes macroeconomic analysis to provide optimal asset allocations for investors of various risk profiles. The Watchpoint engine, via its underlying algorithms, has been proven to beat standard market benchmarks like the S&P 500 over the past four decades by utilizing Adaptive Asset Allocations in response to changes in the macroeconomic environment.

The Watchpoint models have been independently verified by Refinitiv, a leader in market data analysis, and demonstrate a significant advantage to investors. Simply stated, we outperform the market by avoiding the worst of it. The Watchpoint tool serves to inform investors when overall risk conditions become too high, indicating a high probability for losses. Avoiding dangerous market conditions makes all the difference.


Watchpoint’s algorithms have been extensively back-tested to optimize hypothetical portfolio allocations in line with an array of risk appetites.      


Watchpoint Monitors macroeconomic events to gauge investment risk from a macro-driven perspective. The algorithm then works around the clock to immediately spot when risks change and notifies subscribers.


Watchpoint utilizes its algorithms to adjust portfolio allocations when risk levels change. We offer users an array of portfolio models tailored to specific risk profiles to track with their own investments. Watchpoint provides users with a macroeconomic overlay to inform them on when to adjust risk exposure.

Learn the Markets

High Risk

Watchpoint’s primary objective is to identify when to get defensive by automatically moving to more conservative allocations when risk levels are too high. When probabilities favor major market drawdowns, Watchpoint takes action to protect your nest egg.

Moderate Risk

When signals indicate that we are in between clear bullish and bearish phases, Watchpoint updates subscribers to allow a prudent balanced approach to managing risk both to the downside and to the upside.

Low Risk

When macroeconomic signals suggest that overall risks are muted, Watchpoint alerts investors to be opportunistic skewing towards higher equity exposure to maximize returns for investors in bullish phases.
