Spector Spotlight – 1st Edition – What is a Spector?

May 18, 2018 | Spector Spotlight

What is a Spector™?

Welcome to the first edition of our Spector Spotlight. You are probably wondering, “What is a Spector™?”

Spectors ™ are Specific, Theme-Oriented Investments (SpecT-Or).  In a nutshell, they are investment models which try to capitalize on certain individual themes or trends by using individual stocks and low-cost ETFs. By owning the underlying holdings, we can achieve greater diversification, lower expenses and tax advantages. Spectors™ are for investors who are looking to get more out of their money than simply meeting a savings goal (we have Tempo™ Funds for that).

At DreamWork we want to put you in the driver’s seat whenever possible. We want you to capitalize on your ideas. We don’t sell products, so your happiness is all that matters to us. Too often, people are simply grouped into broad categories and all personalization is lost. We hope to do better than that, and one way is through our Spector™ offering.

Below is our current list of Spectors™. If you don’t see exactly what you are looking for, please let us know and we would be happy to discuss developing one for you.
