STRATEGIC | ACTIVE PORTFOLIO

Objective

Seeks a balance of growth of original investment plus current income.

Description

This portfolio uses a Global Market approach with exposures to stocks and bonds from the U.S. and other developed and developing countries around the world. The core of this portfolio is indexed. In addition a portion of the assets are invested in actively managed portfolios. Historically, certain asset classes have proven to be less efficient due primarily to decreased liquidity and price discovery. These inefficiencies create opportunities for active managers to improve on the return of indexes. Actively managed investments are selected after extensive research identities them as having superior return potential compared to the general market.
