Ready-to-Go Folios: Conservative Folio

Investment Style Folios | All Folios

Objective

The Conservative folio was developed for investors seeking long-term capital appreciation and income with lower market volatility and returns.

Strategy

The Conservative folio was developed to have a level of risk lower than that of the overall market, specifically the S&P 500.

The folio is expected to achieve lower returns than the overall market during a bull market. However, returns will tend to be slightly better than that of the overall market during a downturn providing a potential hedge as well as a source of income.

Steps to Create This Folio

  1. We screened for securities with a historical beta lower than 0.7 from securities with market capitalizations greater than $1 billion. As a reference point, the S&P 500 has a historical beta of one and therefore the folio generally should be significantly less volatile than the S&P 500.
  2. We selected the securities with the largest market capitalizations in each sector, and targeted the sector weights to be comparable to the S&P 500.
  3. We equally weighted all securities in the folio.

Number of Securities

There are generally 30 securities in the folio.

Update Frequency

Quarterly.

If the characteristics of the Folio have changed substantially, the securities included may change. Also, corporate actions, such as a merger, or other events may cause changes to the securities held at any time. 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.
