U.S. Risk Managed Dynamic Allocation SMA

Seeks attractive long term returns by investing approximately 50% in a core portfolio of individual U.S. large cap equities. With the goal of stabilizing the portfolio’s risk profile, the other 50% is dynamically allocated between U.S. equities and fixed income, primarily through the use of index ETFs. Depending on forecast risk, the total portfolio may range between 50% to 100% equity exposure with fixed income exposure ranging from 0% to 50%.

Investment Approach

  • Approximately 50% of the portfolio replicates the holdings of the U.S. Large Cap Core Equity SMA; a carefully constructed portfolio of high conviction investment ideas supported by our deep pool of U.S. equity analysts.
  • Approximately 50% of the portfolio is dynamically allocated between fixed income and equities, primarily through broad market index-based ETFs (and cash), to increase or decrease overall equity market exposure.
  • Core equity style targeting attractive opportunities across the investable universe with a dynamic allocation element to adapt to changing market volatility.
  • Investment process that: leverages the stock selection capabilities of our global research team and incorporates dynamic asset allocation driven by asset-class risk forecasts level. 
  • A focused large-cap core equity approach using stock selection as the primary source of excess returns blended with a dynamic asset allocation strategy for risk management.


All investments are subject to risks, including possible loss of principal. The strategy is not diversified, and poor performance by a single issuer could adversely affect performance. The strategy’s focused approach to equity investing could cause it to underperform other stock portfolios that employ a different investment style.
