Meeting the Investment Objectives of the Foundation Portfolio

Glide-path Investing

Strategic Asset Allocation

Age-decade-linked Glide Path
  • A Glide Path is a strategic asset allocation that changes with age by moving to more conservative assets as individuals mature.
  • The Income portfolio uses an Age-decade-linked Glide Path that moves from a higher allocation to Corporate Bonds in the 20s to a higher allocation to Government Bonds beyond the 60s.
  • Corporate and Government assets form a Strategic Barbell between asset classes which moves its balance with time.
  • Allocation does not change every year since it is not tax-efficient, but only changes once a decade as individuals mature and enter different phases of their lives.

Inspiration Behind The Continental Suite

The Continental Suite is inspired by The continental features on the earth shaped as Golden Spirals. A golden spiral is a natural shape in which continental features fold when faced with tectonic forces.

  1. Gulf is inspired by the shape of the Gulf of Mexico
  2. Africa is inspired by the shape of the the African continent
  3. Himalaya is inspired by the shape of the Himalayan Range folding at the Pamir Knot and the constant erosion of the mountains as they grow.
