Outlook Financial Center, LLC
At Wellness Investment Advisers LLC, our main objective is to help our clients accomplish their evolving investment aspirations and goals in today’s complex investment marketplace. The advice and recommendations you’ll receive are custom-tailored to you, factoring in your risk tolerance, desired returns, time frame, and income specifications. With market insights and our personalized approach to asset maximization, we offer innovative solutions for our clients. Our team of professionals shares a common vision for success and customer service, and we provide investment management that caters to each specific investor.
Asset allocation is a management process that consists of combining various asset classes (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and more) into a portfolio. Returns are sought from the portfolio as a whole, and not each individual security. This approach to asset allocation addresses potential risk through proper diversification while also pointing your assets toward achieving growth.
Our experience and confidence in the aforementioned process, combined with our objective-driven management, make us a fit for people who are investing for retirement income. We are also adept at focusing your assets to help create a reliable source of retirement income while mitigating volatility and aimed at long-term growth.
As a fiduciary, we have an obligation to ensure the appropriate products, services, and recommendations are chosen based on the clients’ best interests. Therefore, we develop your personalized asset allocation model based on individual risk tolerance, objectives, and financial needs. Our goal is to maximize your investment returns through diversification of your assets* and a disciplined investment philosophy combined with rigorous risk management.
*Diversification and asset allocation does not assure or guarantee better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of investment loss. Before investing, you should carefully read the applicable volatility disclosure for each of the underlying funds, which can be found in the current prospectus.

Since 2000, CLS’s Risk Budgeting Methodology has been integral to the execution of our portfolio management because of three core beliefs:
CLS’s Risk Budgeting Methodology is flexible enough to be applied to a broad variety of investor risk comfort levels, from aggressive to conservative. We have also found that most investors have one of four main investment objectives (which may change over their investing lifetime). Within these categories, we either wholly apply our Risk Budgeting Methodology, or combine it with other approaches.
