Asset Allocation Strategies
In pursuit of a philosophy dictating returns on an absolute basis, strategic and tactical asset allocation strategies remain an integral driver as we strive to meet client expectations. Since different asset classes respond sporadically to changes in the environment, grouping several together as part of a diversified portfolio reduces the effect of poor performance of any one asset class over a given period of time.
Tactical asset allocation
Tactical asset allocation is managed on a discretionary level as strategies seek to provide progressive sources of investment return. Crystal Century Investment leverages upon its global presence as assets are allocated in line with client specific objectives. Our capabilities are driven by an interdependent focus across investment disciplines, regions and sectors, as we seek to uncover value at each stage of the identification and execution process.
Goals of tactical asset allocation
- Manage volatility through ranges and limit explicit drawdown effects
- Outperform individual benchmarks based on an absolute return policy
- Alpha generation through identification of value securities
