Dynamic Income Allocation Portfolio

As Value Investors, we believe that the core foundation of an individual investor’s portfolio strategy should emphasize income and the protection of principle.

We believe these goals represent the fundamental keys to preserving the wealth built over a lifetime of saving and investing.

At Pelican Bay Capital Management our Dynamic Income Allocation Portfolio is designed to function as the core foundation of an investor’s portfolio.

The Dynamic Income Allocation Portfolio utilizes a top-down approach that seeks to maximize diversification and reduce correlated returns by investing in a portfolio of low-cost ETF’s that track the indices of several different asset classes, including but not limited to: 

  • Domestic Equities; International Equities; 
  • Emerging Market Equities; 
  • Sector Specific Indices; 
  • Master Limited Partnerships; 
  • Preferred Stock; 
  • Investment-Grade Corporate Bonds; 
  • High-Yield Corporate Bonds; 
  • U.S. Treasury Securities; 
  • Developed Country Sovereign-Issued Debt; 
  • Emerging-Market Sovereign-Issued Debt; 
  • Securitized Loans; and 
  • Money Market Funds.
  • In the process of achieving the desired diversification, the Portfolio Manager applies our value investing principals to actively select a target allocation among ETF’s that we believe are undervalued. Or objective is to boost returns beyond the benefits of simple diversification by having larger portfolio weightings in asset classes that we believe are undervalued with better upside return potential. Similarly, we will shy away from owning overvalued asset classes.

    In addition to tactically allocating between multiple asset classes, we also strive to construct a portfolio that has a current dividend yield that is greater than the dividend yield of the S&P 500 or ten-year U.S. Treasures. In our view, elevated income can add stability to a portfolio and maximize the benefits of compounding through reinvestment.
