Steps to Create This Folio
- We selected a series of ETFs that captured the range of key asset classes we determined were necessary to build an optimally diversified portfolio.
- We used the low expense ratio of the ETFs as a selection criteria when multiple ETFs were available that capture an asset class.
- We then ran a quantitative analysis identifying the optimal allocations to each ETF targeting the maximum expected return for a target risk level.
- We created a series of folios for target risk levels appropriate at each stage in an investors life.

Your returns may deviate significantly from the values displayed here, due to many factors, including how long after a folio has been updated that you place orders to update your holdings.
