Strategy - Permanent Portfolio (Canadian)
A diversified, low maintenance portfolio that consists of asset classes that take advantage of different economic 'seasons'. It differs from the All Weather Portfolio by equally weighting each asset, while the All Weather Portfolio adjusts each asset based on risk. Ensures that there are asset classes that take advantage of different economic seasons: equities for high economic growth, bonds for low economic growth (and to counter the volatility of stocks), gold for inflation, and cash for deflation.
Past PerformanceRelatively low performance during bull markets (2002-2007, 2009-present), but large bond and cash allocation resulted in protection during bear markets (2000-2001, 2008).
Based on the model portfolio described in Fail-Safe Investing: Lifelong Financial Security in 30 Minutes by Harry Browne.
Transaction costs are minimized as rebalancing only occurs once a year.
