Objective

The Conservative folio was designed for investors seeking an equity portfolio with some potential for long-term capital appreciation and income, with lower volatility than the overall equity market.

Strategy

The Conservative folio holds equities with relatively low beta as compared to the overall U.S. equity market.

This folio is expected to achieve lower returns than the overall equity market during a bull market. However, returns will tend to be slightly better than that of the overall market during a downturn, and with lower volatility than the overall equity market.

Steps to Create This Folio

  1. We screened for securities with market capitalizations greater than $1 billion and a historical beta lower than 0.7.
  2. We then selected the securities with the largest market capitalizations in each sector and targeted the sector weights to be comparable to the largest 500 securities ranked by market capitalization.
  3. We equally weighted all securities in the folio.
