Chilton Capital Management's "Active Asset Allocation Strategy" (AAA) is an active strategy with over-weightings and under-weightings implemented relative to a well-diversified passive global index benchmark.


The AAA strategies provide the "Active" use of "Passive" management. The "Passive" index funds are primarily ETFs designed to match broad market indexes. They are "Actively" managed to outperform the benchmark with proportions which may vary through time, depending upon current market valuations. The AAA Strategy portfolio is designed to save the investor fees, trading costs, and taxes that the average investor spends.


The Portfolio will seek to hold the best ETFs (or Mutual Funds) which the portfolio manager may identify, chosen to track each asset class, including considerations of net returns relative to the benchmark and risk.




The first objective of the AAA strategies is to outperform the AAA Benchmarks. The second objective is to outperform the Peer Group of investors with similar asset allocations.
