Firm History


CANTU TACTICAL WEALTH MANAGEMENT, INC.

is a registered investment advisor under the Investment Advisors Act of 1940 and provides investment portfolio asset management services as an Active Stock Trader Advisor and asset manager. The firm was incorporated in October of 2009 in the state of Florida and began offering investment advisory services in February of 2010 to the states of Texas, California and Florida. The Global Tactical Asset Allocation (GTAA) Management service uses a “Top-Down” economic approach for domestic and global securities in selected strategic portfolios with stocks, bonds and ETFs. As a tactical manager, we are Active Stock Trader Advisors for retirement plans, trust assets and international clients. We use sector rotation for performance, keying on low cost investments and seeking momentum in our positions and managers in our search process. We believe fixed income is an asset class which should be managed for principal gain and the pursuit of high income. Lastly, we are a fee only investment adviser, not a broker, and do not receive any additional revenue from vendors.
