This week's research note takes a deeper dive into diversification within a tactical 90/60 portfolio that utilizes portable beta.

By breaking down the strategy into its passive holdings (a 50/50 stock/bond portfolio and U.S. Treasury futures) and active long/short overlays (trend equity, bond carry, bond momentum, and bond value), we gain a better understanding of how they interact and how each piece has performed historically.

Using a mean-variance framework, we arrive at an efficient frontier of the strategy components and assess the differences between the optimal portfolio and the tactical 90/60.

We enjoy looking into ways that investors can pursue capital efficiency while managing the additional risks that often entails and hope you will give it a read and let us know your thoughts. (PDF)
