ANTYA Investments Inc. Highlights Futility of Active Stock Picking

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 09, 2016) - ANTYA Investments Inc. ("ANTYA") is pleased to announce the release of its research report for the month of May 2016. Our monthly research publication titled VITARKA (meaning reasoning, argument opinion or deliberation in Sanskrit), is meant to inform and educate readers about capital markets, investing, the Canadian Economy and other issues that affect retirement savings, and the financial well-being of Canadians.

Our current issue titled, TSX60 Total Return Index -- Humbling the Soothsayers, discusses the futility of heeding the advice of stock market experts touting top picks on TV in the context of creating a well-diversified portfolio. Our research highlights that an equally weighted portfolio of 30 stocks created from top-picks of well-meaning and sincere investment experts on TV, failed to sufficiently protect capital in down markets, was more volatile than the overall stock market, and significantly underperformed the benchmark TS60 total return index.

Therefore, the authors of the study conclude that investors are better served by using low-cost asset allocation services offered by ANTYA. Our fully managed, discretionary asset allocation based Portfolio Management Service, focuses on long-term saving needs and outcomes, and assists you in meeting your personal goals.

ANTYA offers three types of individually customised portfolios created from low-cost exchange traded funds also called ETFs. The ANTYA 20/20 Growth Portfolio is for longer term investing, and provides exposure to high growth sectors like emerging markets, technology and U.S. healthcare.

ANTYA Pivot, which is our balanced portfolio, is a lower risk portfolio for investors that may want to draw income within 10 years from their investments, or those with a longer horizon but lower risk appetite. ANTYA Sleep Easy Income Portfolio is meant for income seeking investors. All investors take an online test to assess risk-appetite. The test has been designed by a global leader in the field, and is used by leading financial institutions of the world.

All ANTYA accounts are insured by Canada Investor Protection Fund up to $1 Million, and the custodian for all accounts is an independent 3rd party. ANTYA's fees are amongst the lowest in the industry at 0.50% annualized for accounts less than $100,000, and 0.40% for accounts greater than 100,000. All else being equal, our low fees can increase your wealth by approximately 18% over 10 years.
