IIT Global Tactical Asset Allocation 40 DR Portfolio

Infanger Investment Technology advises a family of global asset allocation portfolios for institutional and private investors. The portfolios are invested tactically in international equity in five regions, U.S. and Canada, Europe, Japan, rest of Asia, and emerging markets, as well as bonds, classified into long-term, short-term, and cash. The IIT Global Tactical Asset Allocation 40 DR Portfolio (IIT GTAA 40 DR) is measured against a benchmark of 40% international equity (allocated regionally according to market capitalization) and 60% long-term bonds. The objective of the allocation strategy is to perform similarly to the benchmark on average annually while maintaining significantly smaller downside risk characteristics. Portfolio allocations are rebalanced between the different equity and bond classes, where the total equity allocation is maintained between 0% and 60% of portfolio value. Turnover is controlled so as not to exceed 10% per month. The portfolio is managed quantitatively, using Infanger's proprietary methods for performance prediction and for risk management.

The IIT Global Tactical Asset Allocation 40 DR Portfolio (IIT GTAA 40 DR) is managed in such a way that the maximum drawdown is likely not to exceed 9%. This is achieved by controlling the risk tolerance of the fund. The risk tolerance of the fund is reduced (the extent is determined by a mathematical model) as the drawdown increases and is increased as the drawdown decreases due to positive performance.

The measures of gross fund performance presented below are based on recommended allocations and asset-class returns from fund inception in Sep-09 through Apr-17.

Past performance is no guarantee of future performance.
