The Macro Overlay is an active investment strategy designed to generate consistent returns uncorrelated to other asset classes. It is constructed as a complementary module that enhances the risk/return relationship of traditional investment portfolios. The strategy combines long-term macroeconomic data with mid-term behavioral finance components and short-term technical analysis.
The illustration above shows our portable overlay model portfolio along with a risk-free proxy (short-term U.S. Treasuries). It can be overlaid at various exposure levels to institutional portfolios.
All figures above are based on an 80% allocation to a 3-month U.S. Treasury total return index along with a 20% allocation of our portable overlay. The statistics include a negative contribution of 2% p.a. fix and 10% p.a. performance adjustment.
