We find via simulation that the Global Predictions forecasting and optimization engine would have outperformed a Global 60/40 Benchmark portfolio (industry standard) and an Equal-Weighted Universe of constituent securities (globally diversified mix of stocks and ETFs) by 6% and 3% per annum, respectively, when evaluated at 12% annualized volatility and run since 2015 and rebuilt every month with data only available at point-in-time. While any such backtest is just one view into a hypothetical historical outcome, we believe this simple and transparent demonstration gives credence to the power of diversification, systematic forecasting, and portfolio optimization that all investors can take advantage of.
