Investment Process

Dotport follows a top-down (fundamental) process. A detailed macro-economic analysis is performed on a monthly basis, concentrating on local as well as global economic factors which influence the possible returns of the different asset classes. The outcome of this analysis determines the optimal asset allocation of investments. The investable universe of unit trusts are ranked by a proprietary quantitative ranking model, which enables Dotport to construct a portfolio of fund of funds, reflecting the optimal asset allocation mix.
