The Defensive Multi-Index Portfolio is a tactically traded passive growth strategy managed on a discretionary basis by Crossing Point Investment Managers. It is aimed at medium to long term investors who are seeking a cautious investment that has a genuine prospect of capital growth.
The equity element of the portfolio will not exceed 25% but may in times of market weakness be reduced to zero and be replaced by UK government bonds or cash. Tactical trading strategies seek to invest into equity when market momentum is rising but retain profits by moving to the security of gilts when market momentum falls. These strategies seek to enhance overall gain and reduce risk loss.
The chosen passive index tracking funds can invest in UK and overseas equities, commercial property, fixed interest securities, natural resources, precious metals or cash. Index tracking funds replicate the stockholding of an underlying index.
Since these funds track the composition and performance of the underlying index, there are low levels of human involvement and so these funds have a lower total costs.
The Defensive Multi-Index Portfolio is benchmarked against the average performance of the IA Mixed Investment 0% - 35% Equity Sector and has a risk rating and investor profile of 2 out of 10.
