Is the 60-40 Split Dead?

Summary:  The 60/40 portfolio traditionally consists of 60% equities and 40% bonds and remains a popular allocation strategy for investors. It aims to balance higher-growth equities and lower-risk bonds, offering some protection during market downturns. Recent declines in both equities and bonds challenge the effectiveness of this allocation because portfolio models – like the 60/40 allocation – assume that asset classes remain uncorrelated.

C8’s CEO, Mattias Eriksson, proposes an alternative to this traditional equity-bond mix that results in better and more robust investment outcomes. It is achieved through a combination of adding uncorrelated alternative constituents and using modern portfolio construction methods.

After all, Yellen is still quoted as saying that the US is on a responsible fiscal path, despite the deficit (which is, as Mosler notes, the public’s surplus). Or perhaps they think that with some proper cajoling, the greedflation genie can be put back in the bottle (at least temporarily) as CEO’s find a renewed sense of civic virtue and community? We wouldn’t hold our breath. Read more →
