The New Frontier of Managed Accounts: A Fund Strategist Portfolios Primer

Fund Strategist Portfolios (“FSPs”) can provide advisors access to investment strategists who construct distinct portfolio solutions to help meet the ever increasing demands of today’s investors. They typically comprise a set of mutual funds and/or exchange-traded funds (ETFs). FSP solutions espouse various approaches to portfolio construction and asset allocation: whereas most FSP portfolios employ a long-term, strategic asset allocation approach, others take a dynamic or tactical approach and actively shift allocations in order to take advantage of short-term market movements.
