At SquirrelSave, we use data-driven Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) techniques to optimize portfolio returns within projected risk parameters. We integrate our Tactical Asset Allocation (TAA) and Strategic Asset Allocation (SAA) actions seamlessly, by applying state-of-the-art AI/ML augmentation.
As an AI-driven digital fund management company, we constantly review and scrutinise our AI algorithms to seek viable ways to improve our portfolios’ performance. By channelling our expertise in financial asset volatility research & experience in the financial industry in general, we recently enhanced our TAA algorithms.
The key game-changer to the latest TAA methodology upgrade centres around our infusion of dynamic asset weighting shifts, applying a “survival of the fittest” approach to optimal return formulations. That means the system automatically updates each asset weighting according to their latest risk-adjusted returns consistent to Markowitz’s Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT). Our process is fully automated without any human interference.
These enhancements have generated very encouraging risk adjusted returns over the first three months of 2021! Our actual portfolio performances are consistent with our back-tested (using long-historical data) simulated results. While this is a very short period to draw definitive conclusions, we are confident these recent results will position our SqurirelSave portfolios well in the ensuing months and years ahead.
The table below shows the latest returns thus far in 2021 as at the time of writing, for the SquirrelSave reference portfolios and one of our bespoke Very Aggressive client portfolios.
