The Westwood Balanced strategy combines Westwood’s well-established LargeCap Equity and Fixed Income strategies into a single solution. These strategies are designed to produce superior investment returns on their own, and provide the added benefit of asset allocation together.
The portfolio generally targets a 60%/40% blend between stocks and bonds, but the asset allocation can be customized to meet the investment objectives and risk tolerance of each client.
An asset allocation between stocks, bonds, and cash is established based on an assessment of the economy and capital market expectations, which is formalized in the Westwood capital market outlook.
Once an appropriate asset allocation structure is established, the LargeCap Equity and Fixed Income investment teams construct a portfolio that reflects the models of both strategies, which are driven by bottom-up research on individual securities.
