White Paper From Fund Architects Looks at Expanded Efficient Frontier

"Asset Allocation With a Global Mandate" Builds Case for Investments Beyond U.S. Borders

HEATH, TX--(Marketwired - Sep 18, 2013) -  Fund Architects LLC, a provider of dynamic asset allocation portfolios designed for a broad range of investors, has released a white paper based on the firm's research into global asset allocation.

The paper -- "Asset Allocation with a Global Mandate: Intelligently Expanding the Efficient Frontier" -- thoughtfully describes the risks and rewards of including non-U.S. securities in an asset allocation portfolio.

The paper's primary author, Fund Architect's Co-CIO J.C. Waller, says the report is designed to help both financial advisors and their clients understand the rewards readily available to them from a global investment strategy.

"It's easy to show how dramatically the global opportunity set that resides outside of the U.S. has increased over time," says Waller. "Investors can, and should, benefit from the growth occurring in foreign countries."

Fund Architects' research shows that while the reasons for investing in international markets are many, the key benefits for a global approach right now include:

  • Attractive historical valuations,
  • Lower correlation and diversification benefits,
  • Economic growth, and
  • Demographic trends.

The paper also speaks to key considerations in the current global marketplace and ways investors can implement a global asset allocation strategy.

"In today's environment, there are many reasons investors and advisors should be allocating assets using a global framework," says Waller. "The evidence indicates that including foreign securities with domestic securities in a global portfolio not only reduces risk, it can enhance returns."
