Asset Allocation Strategies

Ascendant Global Allocation Program (GAP)

GAP is a WRAP fee arrangement that provides open architecture portfolios of mutual funds that are comprised of both Ascendant and non-affiliated mutual funds. Those funds are bundled together with an asset allocation overlay structured to address the client’s investment objectives, while attempting to provide a return commiserate with the risk assumed. Third-party mutual funds are chosen using Ascendant’s proprietary fund ranking system.

The percentage allocations shown above are target allocations as of 4th quarter 2011.
