§This is a Discretionary Managed Account whereby Stash has full authority to manage according to a specific investment mandate. “Balance" is defined by buying underweight and overweight assets or selling them in correct proportions in an effort to bring you closer to the target allocation appropriate for your risk profile. Diversification and asset allocation do not guarantee a profit, nor do they eliminate the risk of loss of principal. Stash does not guarantee any level of performance or that any client will avoid losses in the client’s account.
^The investment team at Stash built these portfolios with the goal of optimizing risk-adjusted returns. This is achieved by utilizing the diversification benefits highlighted by modern portfolio theory. The portfolios consist of well diversified ETFs that provide clients with broad exposure to the stocks of companies of all sizes across all industries and geographies and bonds of various issuers. The portfolios aim to optimize returns given a user’s overall risk profile.
