About Us

Insight Advisors, LLC began as specialized investment management firm providing alternative expertise to sophisticated investors across the globe. Originally focused exclusively on hedge funds, Insight now manages a suite of core strategies along with customized solutions to address a wide range of objectives and opportunities.

Mike Tito is a hedge fund manager who began his career as a prop trader for Wilshire Associates and an investment analyst at Ivory Capital. Tito has successfully applied his systems for large hedge funds and his personal investments ever since. Tito, and the people who use such systems have come to be known as "quants" — it's a reference to the quantitative-analysis techniques they employ. Most recently, Tito has been focused individual investors the ability to more fully diversify their portfolios via access to an automated solution.

Insight aims to fill the gap and provide intelligent, independent low cost investment advice online. After completing an online questionnaire concerning their personal finances, investment goals and time horizon at www.insightadvisors.co, clients receive investment advice through its interactive website.

Insight’s computer-based application and algorithm processes and analyzes each client’s response, creates an investment plan, and then helps the client implement that plan using an app.

Insight utilizes simple brokerage accounts, separately managed accounts, or SMAs, an alternative to funds and ETFs. In contrast to owning a share in a fund, SMAs allow the investor to own each of the individual stocks that comprise the investment strategy. Ownership of the individual securities enables advanced customization and tax management techniques.

INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY

Insight believes that having the ability to go long or short creates more potential for better risk-adjusted returns and this is how hedge fund strategies achieve lower historical correlation to traditional asset classes. Insight believes in allocating among hedge fund strategies using asset allocation approaches borrowed from traditional investing. Not all strategies work in every market environment. The Investment Adviser feels it can quickly allocate to certain strategies where it believes it can gain an advantage. Insight also believes that each hedge fund strategy inherently has its own idiosyncratic risk. By utilizing a multi-strategy approach, we are able to diversify that strategy-specific risk.

ADVISORY SERVICES

Insight provides discretionary investment advisory services. Investors may invest in a discretionary pooled investment vehicle or have Insight manage its assets via a separate account arrangement governed by an investment management agreement.

Insight’s investment advisory services for separate accounts consist of sourcing and analyzing investment opportunities, making investments, monitoring investments, disposing of investments already made by each client, and providing risk management services to each client. The service is offered through Insight’s interactive website, www.insightadvisorsllc.com.

Insight’s clients take an online questionnaire that measures their risk tolerance, investment goals, and investment objectives. It may also gather other information about the client such as investment experience, household income, age, and investable assets. The client’s answers are used to formulate a recommended investment allocation. The client has the option of receiving the recommendation by email and executing the transactions themselves, or having Insight execute the transactions in the client’s account.

Insight’s portfolio management services are tailored to the goals of each portfolio. Although a client may place restrictions upon the types of securities or specific securities to be purchased, sold or held in such client’s account, these restrictions must be in writing and accompany the applicable investment management agreement.

With regard to the pooled investment vehicle, Insight serves as managing member of Insight Multi-Strategy U.S. Partners LLC, a Delaware limited liability company organized in February 2010 (the “Fund”). The Fund is not registered as an investment company, in reliance on Section 3(c)7 of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “ICA”), which permits private investment companies (such as the Fund) to sell their interests on a private placement basis to “qualified purchasers,” as such term is defined in the ICA.

Insight does not participate in or sponsor wrap-fee programs.

Separate Accounts

A client with a managed separate account will typically pay Insight a management fee equal to 1.57% annualized of a client’s separate account net liquidation value, calculated and payable on a daily basis.

The management fee will be deducted directly from a client’s separate account.

Insight may waive any portion of any management fee for any client in its sole and absolute discretion. Insight will generally waive the portion of the management fees otherwise payable by the clients which are attributable to any applicable clients that are members, officers, principals, directors or employees of Insight, or their family members. Insight has imposed different fees (both asset- and performance-based) on different clients and may do so in the future.

Additional Fees and Expenses

Insight’s fees are exclusive of brokerage commissions, transaction fees, and other related costs and expenses which will be the responsibility of the client. Clients also will incur additional charges directly imposed by custodians, brokers, third party investment and other third parties such as custodial fees, deferred sales charges, transfer taxes, wire transfer and electronic fund fees, and other fees and taxes on brokerage accounts and securities transactions.

Neither Insight nor any of its supervised persons accepts compensation (e.g., brokerage commissions) for the sale of securities or other investment products.







Multi-Strategy Investment Objective

Insight’s Multi-Strategy Investment Program seeks to provide investors with exposure to a diversified portfolio of investments utilizing alternative investment strategies. The program’s multi-asset structure seeks to take advantage of broad market opportunities. Insight will not follow a rigid investment policy that would restrict it from participating in any market, strategy or investment. In fact, client’s assets may be deployed in whatever markets or strategies are deemed appropriate under prevailing economic and market conditions to attempt to achieve long-term capital appreciation. Insight may employ one or more of the investment strategies discussed below, among others. The discussion of particular strategies below is not, in any way, intended to predict the mix of strategies that will be represented in a client’s portfolio. In fact, only a limited selection of the depicted strategies may be represented in the portfolio.

Alternative Investment Strategies

Equity Long/Short. This strategy includes the purchase and sale of listed equities. Generally investments will be in mis-priced securities trading at substantial discounts to underlying fundamental values, or alternatively, on the short side, identify securities trading at substantial premiums to underlying fundamental values. Investments should possess a confirmable thesis for trading at a discounted or premium level and also have an identifiable catalyst for the disparity to be eliminated.

Event Driven. This strategy entails investing in securities of companies involved in mergers or acquisitions. The strategy also includes investing in stocks of companies involved in spin-offs, capital structure reorganizations, liquidations, and companies experiencing financial or operational difficulties.

Relative Value. These techniques exploit relative value inefficiencies in the fixed income markets. The strategy can also involve the purchase of an undervalued convertible bond, while hedging with a short position in the underlying equity. The future relationship of the prices of the two securities can be reasonably predicted, and profits are made as the price of the convertible bond converges to its fair value.

Global Macro. This strategy invests long and short in global financial instruments based on a top-down economic and capital market conditions. The strategy also utilizes proprietary computerized quantitative models and trading strategies focused on commodity trend following.

Dedicated Short. This strategy is a dedicated completion portfolio designed to reduce unwanted market risks using short sales. A short sale involves the sale of a security which a Client does not own in the expectation of purchasing the same security (or a security exchangeable therefor) at a later date at a lower price.
