Off The Wall

Mar 13, 2023

What is the Flexible Asset Allocation strategy and how do we use it to manage your wealth? Great question! Tune in to this episode to learn everything you need to know about it. 

In this episode of Off the Wall, hosts David Armstrong and Jessica Gibbs invite Monument’s Erin Hay, CFA, and Nate Tonsager, CIPM, to talk about the Flexible Asset Allocation (FAA) Model –what it is, where we use it and don’t use it, and how it impacts you and your wealth portfolio. 

The FAA strategy can be the bulk of your portfolio. Sometimes, it might even be your full portfolio because what it does is it navigates risk, and that’s what we’re doing here is we’re trying to identify the trends in the market and take a different standpoint than just a ‘set it and forget it’ kind of model.” Erin Hay
