Focused On:

Whether you are young and planning for your distant future, approaching the end of your career, or already enjoying your retirement, Roman Retirement Planning, LLC is here to help you.

Rules-Based Investing

Focused on Minimizing Volatility

At Roman Retirement Planning, LLC, we use rules-based investment strategies.  We help our clients choose the most appropriate investment model to meet their needs.

We offer strategies that provide downside risk management. Those strategies are based on quantitative data. Each investment model is diversified between an appropriate mix of asset classes, based on a defined measure of risk.  Those models, from our most conservative to our most aggressive, are moved to a defensive, “risk-off” position when the quantitative data signifies the potential for significant market volatility.  By using those technical “triggers” we can help to protect our clients’ assets during significant market downturns while growing those assets during periods of market growth.

We also offer strategies that are built to accommodate a client’s cash flow needs, in order to remain invested with the opportunity for growth, even during periods of sustained market volatility.
