Windham’s Tactical Portfolios are built to deliver meaningful protection during significant market drawdowns while providing competitive returns in less adverse environments. Windham dynamically allocates across global equity and fixed income assets to deliver optimal performance for a fragile, neutral, or resilient risk environment.
Participate in global return opportunities with dynamic risk control.
Windham’s Tactical Portfolios adjust exposure to growth and defensive assets based on proprietary signals
of risk concentration and threatening market conditions.
Characterized by conditions that historically coincided with periods in which there were significant drawdowns to growth assets and a state in which
risk is highly concentrated.
Characterized by conditions that historically coincided with periods of average returns to growth assets and a state in which risk is driven by more
than a few factors.
Characterized by conditions that historically coincided with periods of above-average returns to growth assets and a state in which risk is driven by many unrelated factors.
Windham measures risk concentration using a statistic called the Absorption Ratio, which gives the fraction of variability across equity sector returns explained by a group of key factors. A high Absorption Ratio implies that markets are tightly coupled. When markets are in this state, shocks travel quickly and broadly. A low Absorption Ratio indicates that risk is spread broadly across many separate sources, in which case markets are relatively resilient to shocks.
Windham measures risk similarity to threatening market conditions by estimating the statistical distance of current conditions to past periods in which equities suffered significant losses. Windham’s measure of statistical distance considers the magnitude of returns as well as their co-occurrence.
