Historical Performance of Financial Assets
  • Ibbotson and Sinquefield (I&S) examined nominal and real rates of return for seven major classes of assets in the United States
    • 1. Large-company common stocks
    • 2. Small-capitalization common stocks
    • 3. Long-term U.S. government bonds
    • 4. Long-term corporate bonds
    • 5. Intermediate-term U.S. Treasury bills
    • 6. U.S. Treasury bills
    • 7. Consumer goods (inflation)

importance of the global perspective
Importance of the Global Perspective
  • 1. Absolute and relative sizes of U.S. and foreign markets for stocks and bonds
    • U.S. = about 52% of total value of securities
    • More opportunities globally
  • 2. Rates of return available on non-U.S. securities often exceed U.S. Securities
    • Higher returns on equities are justified by higher growth rates for the countries where they are issued
  • 3. Diversification with foreign securities can reduce portfolio risk
importance of the global perspective diversification of risk
Importance of the Global Perspective: Diversification of Risk
  • Returns from risky assets can stabilize one another when held together.
  • Why?
    • Some sources of risk are different (unsystematic)
    • Some sources of risk are common (systematic)
  • Unsystematic sources of risk tend to offset. Only systematic risk matters in a well diversified portfolio.

diversification of risk computing covariance and correlation
Diversification of Risk: Computing Covariance and Correlation
  • Covariance: absolute measure of comovement between two rate of return series
  • Correlation: relative measure of comovement
    • can be positive or negative
    • can be strong or weak
  • Example
importance of the global perspective summary
Importance of the Global Perspective: Summary
  • Many opportunities to invest outside the US
  • May be able to enhance expected return
  • Opportunity to exploit weaker correlations among country returns to diversify risk
asset allocation and investment objectives
Asset Allocation and Investment Objectives
  • Investment Objectives – the articulation of risk and return issues;
      • Risk Tolerance
        • depends on many factors (insurance, cash reserves, dependents, age, time horizon, net worth, income)
      • Return Objective
        • can be absolute (“8% per year”) or relative (“1% above the S&P”); Can also state return objective as a general goal
asset allocation and investment objectives20
Asset Allocation and Investment Objectives
  • Investment Constraints – 5 classes of constraint
      • Liquidity Needs
        • need for income now? at some specific point in the future?
      • Time Horizon
        • typically, longer time horizon means lower liquidity needs and higher risk tolerance
      • Tax Concerns
        • taxes must be paid by most investors on current income and on realized capital gains. Unrealized capital gains allow an investor to defer a tax liability to a later date.
      • Legal and Regulatory Factors
      • Unique Needs and Preferences
asset allocation and investment objectives21
Asset Allocation and Investment Objectives
  • Given objectives and constraints, portfolio formation involves:
    • Asset Allocation - proportions invested by asset class
      • Equity, Fixed Income, Cash, RE, …
      • Foreign vs domestic
    • Security Selection - individual assets chosen to meet target asset allocation
