Every day more than 10,000 Baby Boomers reach age 65. Attaining this important age milestone typically results in a change in investment objectives as focus transitions from the retirement accumulation phase to preparing for the distribution phase.
Two retirees with identical wealth can experience different financial outcomes, over market cycles, even if the long-term market averages are similar. The sequence of returns can significantly impact the income available during retirement.
As a truly tactical rules-based investment manager, our investment process works to minimize risk and can provide you with a very different outcome and retirement income experience. The Ocean Park Balanced Risk Model has an expansive track record that prioritizes downside protection and diverse asset allocation so you can plan for a smoother ride and grow your principal investment over time.
Below is an example of historical returns compared with the Ocean Park Balanced Risk Model as per their comparison. This helps to illustrate how significant declines can effect your sequence of returns.
The Ocean Park Balanced Risk Model has two investment objectives: to provide long-term total return and to limit volatility and downside risk. The Model’s multi-asset diversification strategy employs unusually broad diversification across asset classes, markets, industries and issuers. A passive “buy and hold” strategy is not employed. As part of an integrated risk-management discipline, the Model monitors underlying holdings daily and applies a trailing stop discipline to each holding, based on a proprietary approach, to limit the impact of any sustained decline in a given asset class or holding. The overall asset allocation of the Model is not fixed. It can and does change significantly over time, re-allocating the portfolio in response to trend changes in the U.S. and global economy and in various investment markets.
