This was a great month for our portfolios. Not because of exceptional absolute returns, but because in spite of market jitters, they managed to record solid returns with a very low volatility (;ore than half of that of the SPY for the most volatile portfolio). The best performer was the aggressive portfolio (+1.1%), followed by the conservative portfolio (+0.8%), and the platinum portfolio (+0.5%). Only the retirement portfolio was slightly in the red (-0.1%).
This performance can be mostly attributed to our overweighting of emerging equities, which have performed relatively better than U.S. markets over the last few months. Is it going to continue?
