Asset Allocation strategies

Asset Allocation and Portfolio Management


Asset allocation is a critical part of the investment process as it helps investors to manage their risk exposure when looking for returns. Specifically, Asset allocation is the process of dividing an investment portfolio among different asset categories, such as stocks, bonds, and cash. The allocation that each investor puts in the different categories depends on the investor’s goals, risk tolerance, and investment time horizon.
Moram’s portfolio management philosophy relies on our understanding of the macroeconomic environment. Based on that, we allocate a different percentage of our assets in an asset class or other aiming for obtaining the best possible returns, but managing risk at the same time

Alternative Investing​

Investing in equities

Investing in the stocks market

Stocks can provide the potential for long-term growth and higher returns compared to other asset classes. It entails being exposed to higher volatility and potential short-term losses.

  • Based on the time an investor wants to dedicate to analysing stocks, they can get exposure through active investment or passive investment 
  • Investors can choose to invest in large-cap companies, which are well established and offer more stability or small-cap companies, which have higher growth potential & risk
  • Based on the strategy, a portfolio can be value or growth-oriented. Value investing seeks undervalued companies for potential stock price appreciation, while growth focuses on high growth potential companies
  • A focus on developed countries tends to offer stability while investing in developing countries provides higher growth potential but also more risk.

How to invest in Fixed Income?

Fixed-income investments are financial products that pay a fixed rate of return. They offer a much more predictable return than stocks

The percentage of interest that they pay will rely on factors such as interest rates, credit risk, inflation risk, and duration.

Some of the most common ways to invest in fixed income are Government and Corporate bonds, Certificates of Deposits, Money Market funds, Treasure Securities, Municipal bonds and annuities

Ways to invest in Real Estate

Real estate investment can offer a steady income stream through rent, the potential appreciation in value, diversification of assets, tangible assets, and tax benefits. Some of the most common ways to gain exposure to Real Estate

  • Real estate investment trusts (REITs): buy shares in a REIT, which pools funds from multiple investors to purchase properties and generate income from rent.
  • Real estate mutual funds or exchange-traded funds (ETFs): invest in a fund that holds a diversified portfolio of real estate assets.
  • Direct ownership: purchase a property with the intention of earning rental income or selling it for a profit later.

What does Alternative Investing mean?

In this category, we find Hedge Funds, Private Equity Funds, Ventura Capital investments, Art and Antiques,… we exclude from this category commodities and Real Estate as we allocate an entire section to talk about them.

The main characteristic of this type of investment is diversification as they are not usually correlated to the stock market. Also, they tend to be very illiquid. Private equity funds tend to be closed funds and last around 10 years. Venture Capital refers to investing in companies at a very early stage. This type of investment is extremely risky, but the returns can be astonishing. –> (Click image)
