The aggressive portfolio was created in mid-2006 as a result of frequent subscriber requests for a more aggressive allocation. 

The aggressive trader was first introduced in 2019, so actual historical performance data is not yet available. We have performed extensive backtesting using the selection algorithm, which showed the portfolio outperforming the market. Official performance data will be posted once the Aggressive Trader has been actively operating for one year.

Like any legitimate financial service, we cannot guarantee future returns will outperform the market. Our portfolios aim to intelligently balance great returns with a healthy amount of risk. Protecting your money is equally as important as growing it, especially during times of financial uncertainty, so TSP Pilot takes safe and sustainable long-term approach with our portfolios.
