Our belief is that investing and trading is and can only be sustainable when risk is properly identified, measured, and managed and to achieve this we employ the following measures of fund security and risk management for funds under our management.

  1. Fund Diversification & Portfolio Management:

In order to avoid concentration, systematic and unsystematic risk, when trading the financial markets, Franelta&Basbra makes sure that fund under management (FUM) are built into a portfolio of asset classes. Such asset classes are selected according to different risk levels identified, and funds are allocated in proportionate amounts according to the risk level of tradable asset classes. This method of approach has proven to improve our investing process and is responsible for fund security as well as our return performance of funds under management.

  1. Insurance:

To manage overall business risk, Franelta&Basbra employs insurance covers on client investments and such insurance covers are structured to indemnify principal investing amounts of client.
