Sample Portfolios Beginning 12/31/2006

These portfolios by no means attempt to find the ideal asset allocation for everyone. Depending on your financial situation, the weightings of the assets could be very different. I am simply using these as a standard in order to compare the alternative portfolios.

World Beta 5 Asset Class Portfolio
25% US Stocks (VTI)
25% Foreign Stocks (EFA)
30% US Bonds (AGG)
10% Real Estate (VNQ)
10% Commodities (GSP)
100%

The risk parity portfolio simply uses the extra capital freed up from leverage to place more money into bonds. . .

World Beta 5 Asset Class Risk Parity Portfolio
25% US Stocks (ULPIX) ie only allocate 12.5% of funds to ULPIX as it is 2:1 leveraged
25% Foreign Stocks (UNPIX) ditto
55% US Bonds (AGG)
10% Real Estate (VNQ)
10% Commodities (GSP)
125%

In this case, the extra capital is allocated to portable alpha.

World Beta 5 Asset Class Portable Alpha Portfolio
25% US Stocks (ULPIX) ie only allocate 12.5% of funds to ULPIX as it is 2:1 leveraged
25% Foreign Stocks (UNPIX) ditto
30% US Bonds (AGG)
10% Real Estate (VNQ)
10% Commodities (GSP)
25% World Alpha (10 Holdings)
125%

And just to show how larger portfolios of world betas might look, 10 & 20 holdings:

World Beta 10 Asset Class Portfolio
12.5% US Large Cap (IWD)
12.5% US Small Cap (BRAIX)
12.5% Foreign Developed (EFA)
12.5% Foreign Emerging (EEM)
7.5% US Govt Bonds (1-3) (SHY)
7.5% TIPS (TIP)
7.5% Foreign Bonds (unhedged) (PFBDX)
7.5% Emerging Bonds (FNMIX)
10% Real Estate (VNQ)
10% Commodities (GSP)
100%

2% Precious Metals (GLD)
6% Commodities (GSP)

And lastly, a 50/50 allocation to World Beta 20 and World Alpha.
