The RiverShares™ Global Allocation composite is designed for a time horizon of 7-10 years and focuses on global equity investments with a supplemental fixed income allocation. The global equity component is based on those asset classes that RiverFront believes offer value on a long-term basis and includes potential allocations to US and international equities (both developed and emerging market). The fixed income component seeks to diversify some of the portfolio’s equity investment risks. This strategy is wholly implemented through shifting allocations to a suite of actively managed ETFs that are sub-advised by RiverFront. RiverShares holdings are limited to this suite of ETFs. The RiverShares portfolios have a condensed structure and generally hold between five and nine positions at any given time.
All investments in securities, including this portfolio, include a risk of loss of principal (invested amount) and any profits that have not been realized. Performance of any investment is not guaranteed. Markets fluctuate substantially over time, and have experienced increased volatility in recent years due to global and domestic economic events. Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk, liquidity risk, call risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. In a rising interest rate environment, the value of fixed-income securities generally declines. Diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect against a loss. Investments in international and emerging markets securities include exposure to risks such as currency fluctuations, foreign taxes and regulations, and the potential for illiquid markets and political instability.
