Fact Sheet – Fortress Portfolio

The Fortress Portfolio is the strategy that underlies all Alhambra portfolios. As such, it is a passive portfolio allocated across 5 distinct asset classes:

  • Large Cap Stocks 
  • Small Cap Stocks 
  • Real Estate 
  • Commodities/Gold 
  • Bonds 

We have constructed 7 versions of this portfolio, based on risk tolerance:

The Fortress Strategy was developed to be an all-weather portfolio, producing consistent returns across the four major economic environments:

The Fortress has accomplished that goal, providing solid performance across multiple economic environments.

Since 1972, a Fortress portfolio would have reduced volatility by 25% versus a stock/bond portfolio with the same allocation to bonds but produced the same return.
