Balanced Growth & Capital Preservation


Goal = Prepare
Outcome = Growth & Income

In the Sustain phase investors have a dual mandate. While they still need their assets to grow, there is an increasing necessity to protect the assets they have accumulated. The Sustain phase can be particularly challenging because investors recognize that they must continue to own stocks which means becoming more comfortable with larger dollar fluctuations in their account value. In this phase, market declines often cause investors to second guess their asset allocation.

RiverFront seeks to help investors transition from the Accumulation phase where time is on their side to the Sustain phase where investors’ time horizon is more limited. At this stage, investors generally have the most to lose and the least time to recover hence the importance of protection. To deliver a mix of growth and protection RiverFront’s Sustain solutions are balanced between stocks and bonds and have the flexibility to make tactical adjustments when warranted. We believe, these tactical adjustments when combined with transparency and consistent communication are critical elements in helping investors during the Sustain phase.
