It’s a tool designed for private banking and wealth management professionals, but could just as well be used by sophisticated individual investors.
At its core Portfolio Tactics does precisely one thing – it translates your individual market view into a continuum of optimal portfolios at different risk levels. As a wealth management professional this is just what you need. You manage multiple portfolios at different risk levels, and you promised to actively rebalance all those individual portfolios based on your expert view of the current market state.
Your market view most likely includes uncertainties and different scenarios occurring with different probabilities. You need to weigh all that together forming one market view and then apply that to all the different portfolios you mange, and this needs ti be done consistently and reproducibly. Portfolio Tactics is a framework that helps you with this.
