Asset Allocation Rationale

Let us look at the equity markets in the two recent time periods – the year 2017 and 2018.

Now, look at 2 portfolios:

  • One with 80% allocation to equities and 20% to bonds
  • The other with 20% to equities and 80% to bonds

The equity majority portfolio has better performance in 2017 but the bond majority portfolio gives better risk adjusted returns in 2018.

Multi Asset Tactical Asset Allocation

The strategy Multi Asset Tactical by Wright Research chooses the best asset mix using stocks along with bond and gold ETFs in the two different types of market regimes.

Regime modelling: The regimes are predicted using a model that looks at short term and long term price patterns and economic data. We chase the equity market trend when the market is favourable and try to control the risk when it is not

Stock Selection: While we trade bonds & commodities through ETFs, the choice of stocks in the portfolio comes from equity factor strategies or the popular name smart-beta. The individual equity buckets chase factors like:

  • Momentum or trend following
  • Value or choosing the undervalued stocks
  • Growth or choosing high growth stocks
  • Quality or choosing the stocks with good earning quality

Historical Performance: shows that the portfolio has performed well is all market conditions.
