Adding higher inflation on top of longstanding concerns about rising interest rates makes it wise to consider bond fund alternatives.

This class explores the use of conservative asset allocation funds instead of traditional bond funds in client portfolios.

Learning objectives of this class include planning how to diversify portfolios into bond asset allocation funds with a track record of providing limited equity exposure to boost bond fund returns without adding much risk, and to demonstrate how inflation is expected to affect bond returns versus stocks. Historical comparisons guide avenues to dampening the risk in portfolios.

Exploring ways to dampen portfolio risk

Low-Expense Investing Course By Craig Israelsen 

This learning objective of this monthly series of classes by Craig Israelsen, Ph.D., since inception in April 2009, is to teach professionals advising clients on tax, financial and investment planning how to build low-expense broadly diversified core-portfolios, applying modern portfolio theory statistical techniques and quantitative financial economic analysis.
