About the 18 AM Global Balanced Portfolio

18 AM’s Balanced Portfolio is a hybrid of active and passive management. 18 AM actively manages in less efficient markets with reasonable outperformance opportunities (eg. Canadian Equity). 18 AM uses passive management in efficient markets with little propensity for sustained outperformance (eg. Fixed income and US Equity). With this unique approach, clients benefit from: 1) the reduction of the extent of underperforming in key asset classes, 2) the reduction of fees that comes with passive management.
