Your questions, answered.
Q: Can I not accept this portfolio change, and can I accept the change later?
A: Yes, you can reject the portfolio change, or choose to accept the change later on. You will still be able to do recurring monthly investments into the same portfolio if you do not accept the change.
Q: Investing a lump sum versus dollar-cost averaging, which should we do?
A: Over a year, the market has around a 60% chance of increasing. In general markets go up, so lump sum investing has a higher chance of making higher returns. However, it might be prudent to space out your investments, for example, investing 50% of your lump sum across 3 months, then investing the remaining 50% another 9 months so you are fully invested within a year
Q: Why are the highest weightage funds for the Equity Portfolio highly correlated?
A: We aim to create a portfolio that is globally diversified and is market cap-weighted to capture market returns without over or underexposing geographical risk. It just so happens that the US market is the largest by market capitalisation, and that both the S&P 500 and the Dimensional Global Core Equity Fund have overlapping US exposure, and by nature developed markets are highly correlated to the US market.
