The strategic asset allocation approach utilized by the majority of investment institutions to provide investment advice and guidance is based on unrealistic stock return assumptions making the approach less efficient and effective than a dynamic asset allocation approach. This paper proposes utilizing dynamic asset allocation forward-looking return assumptions to identify the most efficient and prudent asset allocation strategy to invest in. We find a cumulative asset growth advantage of 62% vs. a 100% stocks allocation and 32% vs. a strategic asset allocation approach over two full market cycles since 2000.
