AIS Capital Management L.L.C. History

AIS is an acronym for "Applied Intelligence Strategies", an investment approach that combines the best aspects of human investment experience with the strict disciplines of mathematics through the use of computer technology. AIS Capital Management is a registered investment advisor founded in 1993 that provides discretionary management of stock and bond portfolios. The firm employs a highly disciplined investment strategy known as TAAP (The Asset Allocation Portfolio) which actively manages the asset class allocations among stock, bond, and cash equivalent investments. In addition, gold bullion can be included as a fourth asset class. TAAP's goal is to achieve returns higher than the S&P 500 with minimal risk to investor's capital. TAAP minimizes risk by investing in cash equivalents when stocks or bonds are likely to decline. Next, it achieves superior returns by identifying that asset class (e.g., stocks or bonds) which will perform best for the intermediate time period. AIS Futures Management is a registered C.T.A. and C.P.O that provides discretionary management of futures portfolios for individuals, trusts, retirement plans, IRA rollover accounts, foundations, and endowments. The firm employs a highly disciplined investment strategy known as MAAP(Multi Asset Allocation Portfolio) which has either long or short positions in six asset classes: (1) S&P 500 (2) U.S. Treasury Bonds (3) Japanese Yen (4) Metals (5) Grains and (6) Energy. AIS believes that MAAP is superior to a traditional stock and bond portfolio in terms of its expected return and risk characteristics. Investors can select the degree of leverage in their portfolio ranging from the equivalent of a conservative fixed income portfolio to a very aggressive stock portfolio. The MAAP portfolio offers a disciplined way in which to participate in non-financial markets such as metals, energy, and grains as well as providing a hedge against financial market risks.
