About Dynamic Asset Allocation

Implemented Portfolios actively manage the Portfolio by making adjustments to asset allocations based on market conditions and forecast returns expected from each asset class. Large asset allocation moves are implemented gradually, guided by these long term asset class forecasts. However it is important to note that asset allocation decisions are reviewed regularly and with a broader range of outcomes than more traditional strategic asset allocation approaches (which are often only annual reviews with marginal asset allocation changes within a range).

Implemented Portfolios implement an overweight stance in asset classes where they expect good future returns, though they do limit overall exposure to risky assets. Expensive assets produce low future returns and often also mean large capital losses, and hence Implemented Portfolios seek to reduce or eliminate exposure to these asset classes.

Asset Allocation and Investment Committee

To apply Implemented Portfolios investment philosophy and dynamic asset allocation strategy, Implemented Portfolios have appointed an Asset Allocation and Investment Committee. The role of Implemented Portfolios Asset Allocation and Investment Committee is to apply the investment philosophy outlined above in a disciplined manner, whilst ensuring that the investment program parameters are followed. At their regular meetings they review the long term forecasts for each asset class and adjust the active asset allocation stance as appropriate, as well as agree on the timing of the implementation of any changes.
