First Ascent Launches Flat-Fee, Multi-Factor, Open Architecture Portfolios
First Ascent Asset Management announced the launch of its Factor Select portfolios, which are factor-based portfolios to be offered for a low, flat annual fee of $500.
The new portfolios were developed in response to advisor demand.
The portfolios tilt toward the value, size, quality, and momentum factors because there is strong historical evidence that they can provide a performance advantage.
First Ascent built these portfolios using an open architecture approach that allows it to utilize funds from different asset management firms. Each firm defines and manages exposure to the factors somewhat differently, giving the Factor Select portfolios additional factor diversity.
The Factor Select portfolios hold between five and eight positions and their internal expenses range from 0.11% to 0.23%.
