AFAM Capital’s legacy goes back to 1977 when the late Al Frank launched The Prudent Speculator newsletter and began his TPS portfolio. Our long-term returns for the TPS Strategy (Al Frank’s original portfolio) have consistently outperformed its index1. In 2008, AFAM Capital acquired Innealta Capital and added a dynamic division that utilizes ETFs for its investment products. Some of our strategies are better suited for long-term investors, while others emphasize downside protection.
