The Defensive Strategy folio was developed for investors seeking long-term capital appreciation with lower volatility.
The Defensive Strategy folio consists of large, established companies that are engaged in businesses that are less affected by periods of economic growth and decline. The folio may provide a safe haven during periods of significant volatility or an attractive investment for more conservative investors.
The Defensive Strategy folio is designed to be less impacted by economic downturns. As such, there may be less correlation in movements between this folio and the S&P 500. For example, companies engaged in consumer staples, public utilities and insurance generally do not move with the markets, because even in an economic slowdown, people generally continue to use them. While this folio may not appreciate in line during a bull market, it may also not decline with the overall market during a bear market.
