Investment Philosophy

Blueprint recommends broadly structured, index-oriented portfolios that are designed to take advantage of premium factors. These portfolios allow clients avoid hype, high fees, and hidden agendas that undermine results over time. The core philosophy of strategic asset allocation, as opposed to a tactical- or dynamic-allocation approaches, is key.

These portfolios are built using a multi-factor approach that takes strategic "tilts" toward risk factors including (but not limited to):​

  • Size: Premium for exposure to smaller versus larger company stocks.

  • Relative Price: Premium for exposure to value versus growth stocks.

  • Profitability: Premium for exposure to higher profitability stocks.

  • Volatility: Premium for exposure to low-volatility stocks.

  • Momentum: Premium for exposure to recently positive-price-momentum stocks.
