Strategic Asset Allocation
At 1919, we strive to provide each client with a tailored strategic asset allocation. Asset allocation is the primary determinant of portfolio returns, and as such we believe your asset allocation should reflect your unique goals and objectives. Through the planning process, your dedicated team will seek to understand your situation and ensure that your asset allocation is aligned with those long term goals and objectives.
Expertise Delivered Through
Designed for Flexibility
We believe your asset allocation should be strategic in nature, maintaining a focus toward your long-term goals, while also being flexible to accommodate tactical shifts that reflect our more near term view on a particular asset class.
Each account or grouping of accounts will have an Investment Policy Statement that not only reflects goals, objectives, and investment constraints, but also will have long term ranges for the core asset classes in the portfolio. This provides your portfolio management team flexibility in making tactical over and under-weights, while remaining within an asset allocation range that achieves your portfolios long term objectives.
The Investment Policy Statement is long term in nature, but can be revisited as needed when circumstances or needs change.
