Open Your Portfolio to New Ideas

Highlights

  • This century has faced more than its fair share of economic challenges
  • Basic investor needs remain the same: growth, income and protection*
  • Portfolios must adapt to take advantage of new opportunities and hedge against new risks

Today more than ever, investors need new ways to think about growth, income and protection* against risk. With changing growth patterns and historically low interest rates, the world looks very different than it did a few years ago. President and CIO Art Steinmetz talks about the right way to invest in this changing world and introduces a fresh look at portfolio allocations: The New 60/40.

*Protection is positioned as an investment goal. Investing in certain securities may help to hedge against certain risks, but does not imply any guarantee from loss. Mutual funds are subject to market risk and volatility. Shares may gain or lose value. Fixed income investing entails credit risks and interest rate risks. When interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall, and a fund’s share price can fall.
