How Systematic Investing Dynamically Adjusts Global Asset Allocations

If markets are in a “business as usual” mode, exposures in Blueprint Investment Partners strategies will look similar to other global investment portfolios.

But, when unique market conditions arise, the systematic investing process automatically adjusts asset allocations.

5 Primary Attributes Blueprint Portfolios

Global Asset Allocation

Portfolio diversification across eight major global asset classes in a single investment vehicle

Rules-Based Process Optimized for Behavioral Finance

Systematic investing process answers questions about what, when, and how much to buy and sell – repeatable rules that can help maintain discipline during prolonged market volatility by leaving no room for emotional decision-making amidst euphoria or fear

Dynamic Adjustments in Response to Market Changes

Asset allocation naturally adapts to market conditions – portfolio can look quite different depending on the environment (e.g., when there are uptrends/downtrends in an asset class, interest rates change, volatility arises, or inflation/deflation occurs)

Focus on Managing Downside Risk

Constructed to manage risk during bear markets and severe drawdowns (like 2022 and the Coronacrash of March 2020), but doesn’t need to go completely “risk off” amidst less significant pullbacks (especially those that affect only select asset classes, not the whole financial system)

Ongoing Tax-Loss Harvesting

Tax-friendly portfolio is possible by using a blend of timeframes – this time diversification allows losing positions to be sold quickly, but gains can be held as long as uptrends persist
