Argentus Capital Management Is First to Market With Option Overlay Solutions Inside Unified Managed Accounts

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Sep 27, 2013) - Argentus Capital Management, LLC, a Registered Investment Adviser through its parent Argentus Partners, LLC a leading technology and services provider of Unified Managed Accounts (UMA) to investment advisors, has launched a new Managed Equity Options Portfolio. The Managed Equity Options Portfolio makes available an institutional managed equity option strategy for clients in a Unified Managed Account through the proprietary AlphaNavigator® platform. 

The technology team at Argentus Capital Management developed proprietary software that allows Institutional Money Managers to conduct their option trading via one accessible portal for multiple clients. "Our technology team is the best in the business and we look forward to being on the leading edge with many new advancements in the future," said Doug Gill, Chief Executive Officer at Argentus Partners, LLC.

Scott Zachary, Director of Investment Management at Argentus states, "we continually strive to reinvest capital back into the firm with a primary goal in mind -- that of improving the ability of Advisors to help their clients solve for their diverse financial needs. With today's announcement, we're pleased to be the first Turn-key Asset Management Platform (TAMP) provider to market with fully transparent access to institutional money managers who manage option-trading strategies within a UMA. Equity options can be an important part of a diversified risk-managed portfolio and, if used properly, provide another important investment option to meet clients' investment goals and objectives. The ability to potentially increase portfolio yields through the use of equity option strategies as well as the potential to hedge equity risk can be an important part of a client's portfolio. Our hope is that these new capabilities better enable investors to help grow and protect their hard-earned savings for their future and that of their families."

Argentus Capital Management recently formalized an agreement with Good Harbor Financial to offer advisors immediate access to their long-tenured Tactical Equity Income Strategy, which utilizes the technology Argentus built. The strategy is currently available exclusively to advisors who utilize the TAMP, AlphaNavigator. "It is always gratifying being the first-to-market with a valuable tool, especially one that provides access to such a world-class outfit like Good Harbor Financial," stated Gill.
