We believe in a Retirement Designed Money Management System for our clients providing low and moderate investments with low risk and low volatility1 portfolio management. Our fee-based asset management platform consists of a low to moderate risk selection of investment choices to help retirees secure a better retirement.

We firmly believe in providing our advisors with the highest quality support, training, and tools to help them succeed. In return, our advisors commit themselves to providing our clients with an equal level of dedicated service, helping them reach their retirement goals, helping to lead both client and advisor to a long and successful future.


Horter Investment Management’s approach is to seek to achieve superior risk-adjusted returns over a full market cycle (4-5 years) compared to the traditional 60% equities/40% bonds asset allocation. We do this by implementing investment opportunities with several tactical managers within our two risk buckets. For those investors who are unwilling to stomach anything more than nominal downside risk, our goal is to provide a satisfying return over a full market cycle compared to the appropriate index.


Horter Investment Management, LLC was founded in 1991. Drew Horter has been in the financial services industry for 31 years and a Certified Financial Planner since 1986. His Horter Investment Management has been a RIA for over 21 years. We may not have seen it all, but we have seen a lot.

We pride ourselves in our credibility, knowledge and value system centered around a goal of providing a money management system designed to be low risk, low volatility1. Our greatest asset is the team of people committed to providing our clients with standout service.

Low Volatility Investing

The idea of low risk and low volatility investing1, with satisfactory returns over time (5, 10, 15 years plus) was a competitive alternative to the “buy and hold” mentality and “just take your lumps” investing that was prevalent. “Past performance is no guarantee of future results.  Investing is risky.  Investors can and do lose money.”

Our Vision

We believe in Tactical Asset Management where our platform of Private Wealth Managers can go “Risk off2” to cash, take advantage of the stock market if it goes up or down and can potentially earn money for our clients if interest rates increase or decrease.

For retirees, pre-retirees and conservative investors, we do not believe that “Buy & Hold” and Asset Allocation Models are appropriate, considering investor drawdowns/losses could be 50% in the S&P 500 as we experienced during the Great Recession.
