Our experience tells us that a disciplined and diversified approach to investment management offers the greatest potential for investment success. We believe that a family’s approach to investing should not only include diversification among asset classes, but various strategies as well. Accordingly, we use the following process when appropriate for our clients.
Strategic asset allocation approaches create a mix of asset classes designed to capture market returns based on long-term capital market assumptions, while balancing risk and volatility. The portfolio strategists will generally remain fully invested in their assigned asset class, and usually do not deviate from their primary strategy.
Tactical asset allocation approaches (constrained) attempt to capture broad market returns while also seeking to take advantage of short term opportunities or mitigate risks through moderate allocation shifts. This type of approach provides the potential for the portfolio strategist to add risk to asset classes when risk levels are low, and to remove risk when risk levels are high. While this strategy allows managers to move in and out of asset classes, they generally stay invested within the parameters of their strategy It should also be noted that if the shifts are not timely or are within adversely affected asset classes, performance could suffer.
