About Us

The United States isfacing a retirement crisis, with four out of fiveworking Americans having less than one years income saved in retirement accounts[1].This problem is approaching a tipping point, with 10,000 baby boomers retiring every day over the next 15 years.Whether through a lack of knowledge, a lack of the rightinvestmentproducts, or mistrust in the financial system,working Americans are at risk of not reaching their retirement goals.The retirement savings industryneedsinnovative investment solutions that inspire investor confidenceand make it easy for employers to encourage savings habits that will pay off in positive retirement outcomes.

At Build Asset Management, LLC, our mission is to narrow the retirement shortfall by giving investors the tools they need to confidently save for retirement in the new investment landscape defined by low interest rates and heightened asset price volatility. In 2020 we launched a new asset class called Indexed Risk Control, a dual-mandate strategy that seeks less drawdown than comparable strategies over a full market cycle while still providing potential for upside appreciation. The strategies are comprised of a fixed income core with a long only call options overlay. The fixed income core provides capital preservation attributes, while the options overlay provides linkage to equity market upside. Unlike structured products and some defined outcome strategies, Indexed Risk Control strategies are daily tradable and available in employer-sponsored retirement plans. We believe these products give investors a higher degree of quality, confidence, and risk management than whats available in the industry today. If we succeed, investors will succeed, because they will have the tools they need to build towards a better retirementuntil its time to start living it.

Job Description

_Merely measuring something has an uncanny tendency to improve it. If you want to make your user numbers go up, put a big piece of paper on your wall and every day plot the number of users. You'll be delighted when it goes up and disappointed when it goes down. Pretty soon you'll start noticing what makes the number go up, and you'll start to do more of that. Corollary: be careful what you measure._

- Paul Graham, Co-Founder, Y Combinator
