Tailoring To The Global Tilt

Mohamed El-Erian, the former CEO and co-investment chief of investment management firm Pimco, suggested this asset-allocation strategy in his 2008 book When Markets Collide.[1] In the book, El-Erian advocates for higher exposure to international assets to reflect a global economy that has become notably less US-focused – only one-third of the portfolio’s equity allocation is to US stocks. By holding international stocks and bonds, the portfolio targets global diversification and lower volatility, respectively. In addition, El-Erian suggests holding real assets such as real estate and commodities to provide an inflation hedge along with an exposure to special opportunities to spinoffs, IPOs, and “thematic tilts” in an effort to seek timely opportunities to boost returns.[2] See More
