THE BENEFITS OF YOUR TSP INVESTMENT
YOUR TSP INVESTMENT IS MANAGED
Your TSP investment is managed by a system that studies the market trend and adjusts the allocations of your TSP investments accordingly. Because the stock market is like a big ship and doesn’t usually turn on a dime, stocks usually follow the trend until there are indicators that a change is imminent. The TSP SafetyNET system is very sensitive to these indicators and when they are strong enough, the system notifies us to change our TSP investments to either protect us from losses or to take advantage of market gains. Since our primary goal is to protect your TSP investments from losses the system is particularly sensitive to downturns. The system is not optimized for growth but rather protection from losses. Sometimes we move out of a fund and soon are recommended to return back to that fund. These “head fakes” sometimes occur but are a better option than heavy losses by ignoring the indicators. Protecting your TSP investment is our main goal and so we must trust the indicators even though we get occasional “head fakes”.
THE TSP SAFETYNET SYSTEM USES A POWERFUL COMBINATION OF TOOLS
The Rapid Response system developed by Michael K. Hartmann is a process based on an award winning proprietary metric he developed.
Powerful tools optimized for better TSP Management
The combination of these powerful tools enable you to manage your TSP investment for both protection and growth within the limited frequency of allocation changes. Go over to the TSP SYSTEM page to learn more about how these tools work to protect and optimize your TSP investment.

THE TSP SAFETYNET IS DESIGNED TO BE EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND TO USE
When we designed the system, one of the first things we did was to put ourselves into your shoes. We did not want another huge addition to our “to do” list and we did not want lengthy explanations full of language we didn’t understand or care to wade through. We wanted a powerfully effective system that was easy to use and not demand a lot of time out of our busy schedules. We needed to know how it worked but did not want to be confused or intimidated by the explanations. We designed the TSP SafetyNET system to protect and grow your TSP investment with these ideas in mind. This may not be for everybody as some people need hundred dollar words in order to trust that we know what we are doing. We believe that the purpose of communication is to share ideas and concepts and not to confuse or impress. We have designed the system to be used in a way that encourages it to be used. What good is it if it is confusing and takes too much time to use? We have been able to build a system that is both powerfully effective and simple to use in order to protect and allow your TSP investment to grow under all market conditions.
AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE TSPSAFETYNET SYSTEM IS A PRECISE RISK TOLERANCE ANALYSIS
We realize that everyone has a different approach in their TSP investment philosophy as to how they deal with the whole question of risk vs. reward. This is effected by many things including personality, financial needs and the period they are in their career. We realize that there is no right or wrong approach but it is imperative to respect the importance of risk tolerance when tailoring the management of TSP investments. We use a more precise analysis in that we have 5 different risk tolerance categories whereas other TSP investment systems either ignore the whole subject or use 2 or 3 categories. We chose to use 5 to enable our readers to “fine tune” their own individual approach.
