The leading objective of this portfolio is to maximise potential returns for a given level of risk. Tatton’s portfolios are designed to fit within the risk parameters of market leading risk profiling tools, for example DT’s Dynamic Planner or Morningstar, over the longer term. In terms of Dynamic Planner’s framework, the portfolio is designed to be suitable for Risk Profile 7. At Tatton, one primary measure of risk we use is the proportion invested in the riskiest assets, such as equities. For this portfolio, over the long-term, we would expect the proportion invested in equities to be approximately 90%. This strategic exposure may be adjusted over the longer term to maintain adherence to the risk limits. In the shorter term, Tatton may also adjust this weight tactically as economic and market conditions dictate while not deviating by more than ±12.5%*.

*The ±12.5% comprises a maximum ±10% Tactical Asset Allocation (TAA) decision mandate and a ±2.5% buffer that allows for variation in prices, which can inadvertently drive the chosen allocation higher or lower (i.e. market drift).
