Our Vision

Howard Capital Management, Inc. (HCM) is a SEC-Registered Investment Advisory Firm founded by Vance Howard, which offers professional money management services to private clients, financial advisors, and registered investment advisors through a suite of separately managed accounts, retirement tools, self-directed brokerage accounts, proprietary mutual funds and ETFs.

Vance Howard’s vision for HCM originated after seeing the devastating financial losses investors suffered during the stock market crash of 1987, an event precipitated by computer program trading and investor panic. In an effort to the help investors monitor changing market conditions, he developed the HCM-BuyLine®, a proprietary math-driven indicator, designed with the goal of reducing the impacts of emotional investment decisions.

No thanks.

“We aim to take emotion completely out of the equation. Trading with emotions, in our opinion, ruins long-term returns.”

Mutual Funds and ETFs are subject to risks similar to those of stocks. Investment returns will fluctuate and are subject to market volatility, so that an investor’s shares when redeemed may be worth more or less than their original costs. There are unique potential risks associated with the specific asset classes that a Mutual Fund or ETF represents. You should carefully consider the risk, charges, and expenses of an ETF prior to investing. There can be no guarantee that the HCM-BuyLine® indicator will perform as anticipated. Stoploss protection will not necessarily limit your losses to the desired amounts due to the limitations of the HCM-BuyLine®, market conditions, and delays in executing orders. It is not an actual stoploss order that automatically sells securities in the portfolio at a certain price.
