STC offers three investment advisory strategies: Equity, Fixed Income and the innovatETF Strategies that span multiple investment styles and are designed to serve multiple investor objectives with varying degrees of active management. Within each of these three major investment strategies, STC offers various strategy sub-categories to focus on different investment objectives, benchmarks and risk attributes. Strategies are managed by one or more portfolio managers supported by research analysts, who collectively make up the Investment Policy Committee. The Equity strategies utilize a three-step approach by incorporating quantitative, technical and fundamental analysis to identify the most appropriate securities for each investment strategy. The Fixed Income strategies utilize a four-step approach to identify the securities most appropriate for each portfolio: identifying secular trends, evaluating cyclical patterns, security selection and sector allocation, and ongoing monitoring. The innovatETF Strategies utilize a proprietary asset allocation approach.
