Asset Allocation

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 Foundation portfolio uses an Age-decade-linked Glide Path that moves from a higher allocation to Growth & Accumulation Assets in the 20s to a higher allocation to Preservation Assets beyond the 60s.
  • The Foundation Portfolio takes exposure to Growth and Accumulation assets through the dynamically-allocated and tactically-managed Prosperity Portfolio and to Preservation assets through the strategically-allocated Comfort Portfolio.
  • Prosperity and Comfort portfolios 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.
  • Strategic rebalancing is done using fresh capital allocation.
  • Dynamic rebalancing is done on a monthly basis as per the Prosperity portfolio rebalancing.
