DAYTON, Ohio, March 10, 2020 — Beacon Capital Management (, a registered investment advisory firm that seeks to offer long-term investors innovative portfolio management solutions, has been recognized as one of the 2019 “Top 100 ETF Power Users” by RIA Channel based on total volume of assets managed in ETFs. Ranked at number 18 on the list, Beacon had more than $2.1 billion of its assets held in ETFs as of its Sept. 30, 2019, Edgar filing.

Exchange traded funds continue to be an effective tool to help us to achieve our equal-sector allocation approach while keeping internal fees to a minimum,” said Chris Cook, founder and CEO of Beacon Capital Management. “In today’s volatile markets, we believe it is essential to have this broad diversification as a first-line of defense against sector bubbles. Additionally, ETFs also often allow us to be nimble with the ability to buy and sell efficiently through mechanical stop-loss triggers as part of our investment philosophy. I believe this dual insulation approach is critical in an aging bull market like we are in now, when everything from the coronavirus to politics can have significant and potentially irreversible impact on a portfolio if it is not adequately protected from catastrophic losses.”

Honorees were identified based on the results of 2019 SEC filings. For additional details on list and the companies recognized, visit
