• Phanar’s long-term expectations of asset returns and risks provide a sound basis for forming benchmark portfolios. These expectations are used to define the Phanar efficient frontier.

  • The Phanar efficient frontier is the set of long-term portfolios that are the best attainable long-term combinations of return and risk as per Phanar’s expectations.

  • Investors can choose from among these portfolios to express their return and risk preferences in a sound and disciplined way.

  • Phanar executes its investment strategy by departing from the client’s benchmark and changing the percentages of the portfolio invested in each asset to reflect Phanar’s outlook for the next month.


  • The three main sources of investment portfolio returns are the investment policy portfolio, active allocation across assets, and security selection.

  • When security return correlations are high as they often are, security selection has little influence on portfolio return.

  • For this reason, there are usually many opportunities to add value via active asset allocation.

Short Risk Warning/Disclaimer: The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up, and you may not recover the amount of your original investment.
