Find pockets of opportunity that offer relatively low risk.
The SMIF equity team plans to use both bottom-up and top-down strategies to find the best opportunities to add to the equity portion of our portfolio, which is currently about 70% of $30k. Additionally, the team will ensure that the correlation between portfolio securities is low to gain a diversification benefit.
Growth vs. Value
SMIF has targeted a 60% growth, 40% value strategy, given the current economic environment and expectations going forward.
Fixed Income Strategy
Strategic asset allocation to beat the benchmark while providing stability for the portfolio.
SMIF's fixed income team will be primarily using top-down analysis to decide what asset classes provide the best risk-adjusted returns within the bounds of our policy statement. With a 30% allocation of the total $30k portfolio, the fixed income team will be restricted to ETFs and mutual funds rather than investing in individual company bonds.
