  • It also may give exposure to T-bills and gold in bad markets.
  • TACK gets my approval as a dynamic strategy that works hard to protect investor capital.

Risk management and mitigation to reduce exposure for financial investment, projects, engineering, businesses. Concept with manager"s hand turning knob to low level. Reduction strategy.
