Strategic Growth Allocation

The Strategic Growth Allocations are Sizemore Capital’s answer to traditional asset allocation and will invest primarily using ETFs. The Strategic Growth Allocations are appropriate for risk-averse investors that prefer a more passive “buy and hold” strategy that is consistent with their risk and return goals. The Strategic Growth Allocation seeks to achieve returns comparable to the S&P 500 while taking less risk and is appropriate for investors with an objective of long-term growth. Income is secondary objective.

The portfolios are long term in nature and utilize annual rebalancing as a risk management tool. Unlike traditional asset allocation–which generally shifts assets between “conventional” equities and bonds–Sizemore Capital incorporates non-traditional asset classes including:

  • High-Dividend Stocks
  • Emerging Market Consumer Stocks
  • Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs)
  • Real Estate Investment Trusts
  • Tax-Free Municipal Bonds
  • Inflation-Protected Bonds (TIPs)

These asset classes are chosen not only for their potential for returns–which are attractive in their own right–but for their diversification potential. These non-traditional asset classes tend to have relatively low correlations to the broader stock market as measured by the S&P 500. There are four distinct Strategic Allocations that vary according to risk tolerance:

  • Aggressive Growth
  • Growth and Income
  • Conservative Income
