The 247Bull investment strategy
The 247Bull portfolio utilises two types of investment strategy:
- A strategy for core holdings which are those positions held for the medium to long-term. These holdings make up around 70% of the portfolio.
- A tactical asset allocation strategy for the remaining 30% of the portfolio. This portion of the 247Bull portfolio takes profit from assets that have had considerable up-moves and reallocates it into those that are still undervalued by the market. The tactical portion of the portfolio also takes advantage of specific trading opportunities as and when they arise, and this website will continue to feature them.
Portfolio strategy for core holdings
As investors our primary goal is to understand the powerful long-term macro forces that shape the global economy and determine the direction of financial markets. The reason for this is simple: Almost 90% of stock market returns are driven by macro influences.
