This folio is designed for balanced investors seeking long-term capital growth with balanced risk tolerance by investing in a diversified array of liquid ETFs representing major asset classes. Its target allocation in stocks and other volatile assets is limited to 50%. Investors should first identify their long-term (strategic) risk tolerance and investment objective. Diversification and periodic rebalancing of the portfolio enhance risk management and capital growth. This portfolio can be the core of a larger portfolio. Please review the investment information at www.MyPlanIQ.com to ensure that this folio meets your investment objectives.
The MyPlanIQ SAA Balanced folio uses a strategic asset allocation (SAA) strategy. This strategy is based on modern portfolio theory (MPT) and emphasizes diversified allocation across major asset classes. Risk tolerance is reflected in targeting 50% stocks and other volatile assets allocation. Periodic rebalancing is performed so that the portfolio does not deviate significantly from pre-set target allocations. A proprietary investment selection methodology is used to select ETFs within an asset class, such as large-cap value or investment grade bonds, to improve returns.
