Institutional Model Portfolio
( Sample PDF
The Institutional Model Portfolio is a diversified portfolio of about 50 blue-chip stocks. We seek to achieve total returns in excess of our benchmark, the S&P 500, through a combination of capital gains and dividend income. We also seek to keep turnover low in order to minimize trading expenses and taxes. Our portfolio typically has investments in each of the ten industry sectors of the S&P 500 and our sector weights are generally within 200-300 basis points of their respective market weights. The model portfolio is popular with bank trust departments and other institutional investors seeking broad exposure to U.S. large-cap stocks.
