Wealth Growth with icAdvisor

Top three reasons why you should try the icAdvisor service

  1. Intellectual Capital - Knowledge assets provide long term competitive advantage to a Business. Such assets help the business in developing an economic moat which ring-fences it from the competition. We only pick stocks where the underlying business has a high proportion of knowledge assets. There is no equivalent stock picking service anywhere else.

  2. Rebalancing - Business environments are dynamic in nature. Businesses that have a competitive advantage today may see a rival emerging on the scene in the very next quarter. We therefore monitor the business environment constantly, and update the value of the Knowledge assets of the business as soon as their quarterly results are published. At the end of it, we are able to advice you confidently on how to rebalance your portfolio. This approach keeps your transaction costs to a minimum, yet gives you the best opportunity for maximizing your returns.

  3. Back-Testing - The proof is in the pudding. Take a look at our amazing back-testing results in the chart below, generated assuming a pure Growth risk profile and rebalanced once every quarter.

Our back-testing shows that starting December 2006 until December 2016, the SnP 500 would have multiplied your money 1.6 times. Whereas a portfolio managed using the icAdvisor service during the same period would have multiplied your money 4.1 times. In other words, the icAdvisor based portfolio would have outperformed the SnP 500 by a whopping 2.5 times. That translates to a CAGR (or annual returns) of 15.1% on your money!

Whats more - the risk of the icAdvisor based portfolio would be no more than that of the index itself, as can be verified from the detailed back-testing results. This is so because the portfolio that we recommend is always generated at the efficient frontier - which ensures the optimum risk/reward to you. In the interest of transparency, we have published all the individual stock transactions generated during the back-testing right from day one, so that these results can be independently verified.


My investment experience spans over 25 years and one of the best methods of choosing stocks (defined as that which has given me the best returns with the lowest risk!) is undoubtedly the system from Attainix! In the two years of using the system, my portfolio has handily outperformed the indices in the US. As an added bonus, the Founder of Attainix - Abhijit Talukdar is now a very good friend and his interest in investing and constant endeavor to deliver the best returns is exemplary. I would urge every investor to give the Attainix system a very close look and definitely sign up for the service.
