The ability to harvest gains as investments are going up, and at the same time invest
in asset classes as they are out of favour is a very valuable discipline. Many investors
fail to benefit from diversification, owing to a lack of discipline with respect
Rebalancing benefits arise as volatility rises, so the greatest benefits come during periods like 2008/2009 when there are wild movements in portfolios. Clearly, diversification does not assure a profit or protect against a loss, but it limits the damage inflicted by large downside events.
The benefits of rebalancing can only be achieved by actually implementing a rebalancing strategy. To remain consistent with the asset allocation guidelines established by the model portfolios, each fund in which the portfolio invests will be reviewed on a yearly basis and rebalanced back to its normal weighting.
By maintaining a disciplined and regularly rebalancing the portfolio the benefits of tactical asset allocation can accrue without having consciously to engage in it.
