GYC VaR 8 Portfolio
The GYC VaR series is a core portfolio strategy guided by our belief in Evidence-Based Investing, an investment approach that draws upon the research of some of the most innovative and respected academics in the world. Asset allocation is scientifically structured to capture all the known dimensions of return from both equity and fixed-income markets. These include factors such as size, value, and profitability for equities, and give investors the best chance to maximise their investment outcome in the long run.
The investment mandates within the portfolio are allocated to world-class investment managers who have been selected through a rigorous due diligence process. This portfolio is constructed with clearly-defined risk and return attributes. The portfolio focuses on long-term capital appreciation.
VAR 8 has a loss metric of –8% (VaR) with a globally diversified asset allocation of 35% Stocks and 65% Bonds, comprising over 9,000 securities from 47 countries and representing 35 currencies. A payout option of 3.5% is also available for this portfolio.
