The 2014 Asset Allocation Research Recap
Tactical asset allocation is always a hot topic in the blogosphere. A few fun concepts that hit the wires in 2014:
- GestaltU had an interesting series on Dynamic asset allocation.
- Gary Antonacci released his book on Dual Momentum Investing.
- Meb launched a “free” ETF!
- Barry Ritholtz and Ben Carlson put Tony Robbins in his place.
We had a bunch of thoughts on asset allocation this year and we highlight our top-viewed posts below. There was a lot of discussion earlier in the year revolving around risk parity. We then moved on to reviewing a variety of ideas posed in the academic literature and through our own internal review. Finally, we ended with what we call “Robust Asset Allocation,” which is our imperfect, but robust approach to the asset allocation problem.
