ROCKVILLE, Md., April 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Beaumont Capital Management (BCM) announced that it has launched the BCM Decathlon Moderate Fund (DECIX/DECMX), the first mutual fund in the Decathlon family, with plans to broaden the offerings in the future.
"The BCM team is excited to open the Decathlon Moderate mutual fund in order to meet the demand we have been hearing from the marketplace and expand upon the growth and success we've seen with our separately managed account (SMA) strategies," said David Haviland, Managing Partner and Lead Portfolio Manager of BCM. "With flat or rising interest rates and more modest equity returns expected for the foreseeable future, a strategic 60/40 model portfolio is not likely to produce the same levels of return or downside protection it has over the past few decades. Everyone knows the 40-year bond bull market cannot continue forever."
The BCM Decathlon Fund aims to address these market conditions, providing advisors with a solution that can serve as an alpha engine and volatility buffer to traditional asset allocation models.
"For over a decade, BCM has demonstrated a strong track record with its SMAs. We are very excited by the opportunity to work with BCM on the launch of its new Decathlon mutual fund, broadening advisor and investor access to the firm's successful quantitative strategies," said Catherine Ayers-Rigsby, president of Advisors Preferred.
Advisors Preferred, an infrastructure provider for investment advisors looking to create and distribute mutual funds, serves as advisor to the Decathlon Moderate fund, with BCM serving as subadvisor.
The fund will be managed in a similar way to the firm's Global Multi-Asset Decathlon Moderate Tactics SMA. It is a global tactical asset allocation strategy that uses a predictive, quantitative approach focused on providing growth within a targeted volatility or risk budget. Selecting from a universe of diverse exposures, the fund can invest in virtually any asset class. It seeks to provide low-correlated returns and is designed to be an alpha engine to strategic asset allocation portfolios, while still emphasizing downside risk management.
While traditional asset allocation strategies can be a foundational portion of a client portfolio, they are incomplete on their own, according to BCM. The BCM Decathlon Moderate Fund can work harmoniously with these models to add alpha while also containing volatility within a set target range. This dynamic GTAA fund intends to use flexibility and ever-changing market conditions to its advantage, shifting allocations to capitalize on both long- and short-term opportunities in virtually any asset class.
