Is there a long-term commitment?

No, we know your needs change over time. Investors may sign up or stop working with Artesys at any time without penalty.

How does Artesys make investment decisions?

First, we get to know our investors and their approach to investing, whether offensive or defensive. Then, our experienced team actively monitors, manages and rebalances every portfolio to continue delivering maximum returns and minimizing risk.

How do I know if I am an offensive or defensive investor?

Before signing up for Artesys, we recommend watching our educational videos to better understand both the offensive and defensive approaches. After completing a short risk-tolerance questionnaire, Artesys will recommend one of the Offensive or Defensive portfolios based on your individual needs. Even if you choose not to follow our recommendation, we’re still here to help.

What’s the difference between offensive and defensive investing?

Simply put, offensive investing is a “buy and hold” approach, for those focused on maximizing their return. On the other hand, defensive investing is a “buy and sell” approach, for those who wish to protect what they already have.
