an article in the Journal of Wealth Management in the Spring of 2007 called a Quantitative Approach to Tactical Asset Allocation.

(including real assets, commodities, real estate and inflation-protected bonds). This might result in 10% of dollar exposure to stocks, 40% to government bonds, 30% to credit-related securities and 20% to inflation hedges. 3 The historical return of such a portfolio might be something like 50% of the historical return of the 60% stock/40% bond portfolio, with perhaps 25% of the risk. Risk Parity portfolios are often levered up to get the same expected return as a 60% stock/40% bond portfolio. 4 In the example above, two times leverage would accomplish that, and produce a portfolio with the same expected return and half the risk ...

Public Pension Funds Are Adding Risk to Raise Returns - DealBook ...
States and companies have started investing very differently when it comes to the billions of dollars they are safeguarding for workers’ retirement. Companies are quietly and gradually moving their pension funds out of stocks. They want to reduce their investment risk and are buying more long-term bonds, Mary Williams Walsh writes in The New York Times. But states and other bodies of government are seeking higher returns for their pension funds, to make up for ground lost in the last couple of years and to pay all the benefits promised to present and future retirees. Higher returns come with more risk. “In effect, they’re going ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Rowe, a Dallas investor and the former chairman of the Texas Pension Review Board, said states were looking at riskier investments in an effort to meet pension obligations. Articles in this series will examine the consequences of, and attempts to deal with, growing public and private debts.

Income Investing: How "Low Yield" Can Equal "High Return"
Income investing is all about building wealth. One of the most prudent and effective ways to go about this is to collect regular payments over time from battle-tested businesses with solid long-term growth prospects. The statisticians and market researchers back it up: Dividend accumulation is a critical component of total return, providing essential stability during volatile markets. According to Standard & Poor’s, dividends are responsible for 44 percent of the S&P 500’s total return--the increase in value if all dividends were reinvested--over the last 80 years. During the last decade dividend income accounted for ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Use put-call parity to prove that if a call and a put on the same stock and having the same expiration date are at-the-money, the call must be worth more than the put as long as there is time left before expiration. Can you provide an intuitive explanation for this result that does not refer to your proof? That is, why is it true that a call is worth more than its twin put if both are at the money? Because a the execution of a put requires you to purchase and sell (transaction costs) the underlying value. A call involves just a single purchase. Execution - Um no. The price of the call is higher because there is an ...
