About Confluence’s Asset Allocation Strategies:

Asset allocation is a portfolio management process where various asset classes (stocks, bonds, commodities, etc.) are combined in one portfolio. Risk and return are considered for the complete portfolio as opposed to evaluating individual securities or investments. Confluence recognizes that risk levels and return potential rise and fall over market and economic cycles. Therefore, we apply an adaptive process, one that evaluates economic and market variables in a forward-looking context. Our approach evaluates the investing landscape against the backdrop of the pending business cycle—a rolling time frame continuously looking forward at the next three years, implemented via quarterly rebalances. Properly implemented, asset allocation is a time-tested approach that addresses risk through diversification, while positioning portfolios to achieve growth, income, and other client-specific objectives. Our portfolios offer a broad spectrum of risk profiles, ranging from a conservative posture in the Income strategy to a more risk-tolerant profile in Aggressive Growth.
