4 Dynamic Allocation With dynamic asset allocation, the Multi-Manager Retirement Trusts’ glide path can be monitored and adjusted in response to changing market conditions. If there’s a big increase in market volatility or a sharp change in the correlations of diversifying asset classes, adjusting the glide path dynamically may help cushion the impact. The portfolios focus primarily on moderating risk, not increasing returns. This is reflected in their range of flexibility to adjust the overall equity allocation. This range is tilted to the downside, which means there’s more latitude to reduce equity exposure than to increase it. Flexibility to Dynamically Adjust Glide Path. Focused on Reducing Risk.
