Quarterly Rebalance in Progress
The fourth quarter rebalance is underway. For the models that use the Core Bond Plus strategy, we continue to see trends where we are trimming the Franklin Convertibles Bond Fund (FCSZX) to invest in the Anfield Unconstrained Bond Fund (AFLIX).FCSZX was up more than 8% last quarter and 25% year to date, while AFLIX was up 1% and down 2% respectively. Large Cap continued to outperform Small Cap during the quarter, which led to reallocation of funds from large-cap to small-cap funds.
Direct indexing is an investment style that attempts to replicate the performance of an index by buying the underlying equity or bond positions held within that index. We use technology that uses large-scale data analysis, quantitative algorithms and risk modeling to deliver scalable customized portfolio and efficient tax management. Investor preferences are applied through overlays such as smart beta factor tilts,SRI screens, ESG scores and gender diversity metrics.Dynamic is currently offering these services for portfolios greater than $250,000.
