Performance down in Jan 2022, but looking good since inception
As SquirrelSave offers global portfolios from as low as ONE Dollar, we showcase the ONE Dollar portfolios below.
We track two actual ONE Dollar SquirrelSave portfolios which started in May 2020.

* Figures are inclusive of ETF expense ratios and net of SquirrelSave management fees. SquirrelSave uses AI to design and manage diversified investment portfolios for each investor. Because SquirrelSave is not an investment fund, there is no single return measure. Instead, every SquirrelSave investor has his/her own investment performance as each investor is managed separately by our SquirrelSave AI. As investors can withdraw and top-up any time, investment returns will be affected by individual investor decisions. Hence, SquirrelSave uses reference portfolios which are actual portfolios managed on an ongoing basis, without any interference with withdrawals or top-ups, to measure investment performance.
Asset Allocation shifted into Gold…
In this update, we compare the asset allocation as at 31 Dec 2021 and as at 31 Jan 2022 – for the Conservative Reference Portfolio.

Note the significant increase in Alternative asset class and the drastic drop in Developed Equity. Even as the Fixed Income asset allocation remains somewhat similar at 3% to 4%, SquirrelSave AI has reduced the number of Fixed Income assets from 6 in Dec 2021 to just one in Jan 2022. Instead, Gold has jumped significantly from just 3.2% in Dec 2021 to over 47% in Jan 2022.

What is SquirrelSave thinking?
The last time SquirrelSave had such a high Gold exposure was in Nov 2019. At that time, it was puzzling and exhaustive rounds of review were done to rule out human or data error.
It became clearer by Feb 2020 when market volatility increased significantly because of the rapid Covid-19 spread and impact on economic activity globally. As it turned out, the larger than expected Gold holdings helped SquirrelSave’s reference portfolios weather the Covid-19 market crash in Feb 2020 until markets generally recovered in April 2020.
Our quantitative investment team believes that the SquirrelSave reference portfolios will outperform when the current short-term correction ends.
