Tone's "All Weather" Strategy

At its core, the Tone Capital Global Balanced Strategy seeks to be a true "All-Weather" portfolio, using “quant-based” methods to continually balance portfolio risk exposures, employing real-time fundamental data to tilt the portfolio as economic trends evolve. By intelligently balancing portfolio risks and economic exposures instead of capital allocations, investors can improve the stability of their portfolios over long-term investment horizons.

Forecasting Economic Conditions...

Our economic recession forecasting model uses a diverse basket of economic leading indicators and market-based explanatory variables that each exhibit predictive power in identifying early warning signs of an impending U.S. recession.

To Optimize Portfolio Allocation

Using time-tested economic prediction models, we can modestly tilt portfolio risk exposures to enhance expected performance. No “on or off ” market timing...but intelligent tactical tilts based on changing economic conditions.
