We make every attempt to remove the bias of personal opinions and observation in order to ensure the analyses are as objective as possible. Due to the complex interconnectivity of each individual market, we utilize an AI computer modeling system that is capable of tracking capital flow across all markets while taking into consideration potential economic and social variables. RBF utilizes primary technical analysis as a confirmation tool for providing a visual method of ascertaining market and investment performance. The AI model gives us a unique view into the world’s economic cycle.

Your portfolio strategy starts with you. Once we determine your risk tolerance, liquidity and income needs, your assets will be allocated into our proprietary risk-based strategies.
