Israelsen, Ph.D and author, announced today that they have signed an agreement to offer, for the first time, Dr. Israelsen's 7Twelve Core Portfolio as a single motif. The 7Twelve Core Portfolio motif, a basket of 12 equally weighted ETFs, is a well designed, balanced portfolio utilizing multiple asset classes that can enhance performance and reduce risk.

"Dr. Israelsen is well-respected and has a unique perspective on investing -- one that we believe will be of interest to our investors," said Hardeep Walia, Motif's co-founder and chief executive.

The 7Twelve Core Portfolio motif includes seven core asset classes and utilizes twelve specific exchange traded funds to implement each asset class. This motif contains a wide variety of diverse assets including non-US stocks, bonds, REITS and commodities. This mix helps provide diversity in the portfolio across additional asset classes. By combining Motif's innovative tools with Dr. Israelsen's knowledge of investment strategies, consumers now can invest in the 7Twelve Core Portfolio motif for a total commission of $9.95.

"The 7Twelve Core Portfolio is a broadly diversified model that represents the ideal 'core' for virtually every investor," said Dr. Craig L. Israelsen, Ph.D. "Start with 7Twelve as your base, and add other motifs around it."

Dr. Israelsen is currently a Professor at Utah Valley University, received his Ph.D from Brigham Young University and has written several books including his most recent 7Twelve: A Diversified Investment Portfolio with a Plan. He is regularly scheduled as a speaker around the country and has been quoted in a number of news outlets including TheStreet.com and Reuters and contributes to various Advisor periodicals including Financial Planning Magazine.
