Risk-managed strategies to meet specific investor needs
Frontier’s Specialty Strategies are risk-managed investment strategies that can either complete an investor’s total portfolio or address a specific investor need. If you’re looking for unconstrained strategies that focus on long-term consistent returns while minimizing downside risk, and aren’t concerned about asset class allocations, consider Frontier’s Absolute Return, Absolute Return Plus or Focused Opportunities Strategies. Or if you’re looking for a diversified capital preservation and income strategy, you may want to look at Frontier’s Conservative Multi-Asset Income Strategy.
A range of Specialty Strategies
Each strategy has a target long-term allocation* shown in the pie charts below. Investors can select the strategy that best fits their needs and risk tolerance level.
Investment ObjectiveSeeks to preserve capital.
Based on Capital Preservation strategy, but can invest in any combination of asset classes. Could be used for short-term obligations due within the next 1-3 years, as an alternative to short-term bonds, or for those assets investors do not want or need to be fully exposed to capital market price changes.
Conservative Multi-Asset Income
Investment ObjectiveSeeks to preserve capital and provide current income, and as a secondary objective, provide capital appreciation.
Could be used for short-term obligations due within the next 3-5 years, for investors who prioritize expected downside risk and consistency of returns, as well as receiving dividends and income, or for those investors who do not want or need to be fully exposed to capital market price changes.
Absolute Return Plus
Investment ObjectiveSeeks to provide capital appreciation with moderate volatility.
Based on the Balanced strategy, but can invest in any combination of asset classes. Could be used to fill an allocation to alternative assets, obligations due within the next 5-10 years, or investors seeking to grow the value of their assets who also prioritize expected downside risk and consistency of returns.
Investment ObjectiveSeeks to provide long-term capital appreciation with moderate volatility.
Based on the Long-Term Growth strategy but can invest in any combination of asset classes. Can hold up to 100% equity exposure but is actively managed to prioritize downside risk and to seek to improve consistency of returns. Could be used to fill an allocation to equity-oriented alternative asset.

Strategy Management Process. Each Frontier strategy consists of carefully selected investment products that are combined in an effort to achieve the Investment Objective of the strategy. Strategies are managed using the following process. First, we establish a long-term asset allocation mix that we call the “Target Long-Term Allocation”. Periodically we adjust the Target Long-Term Allocation based on our changing expectations about the future risk and return characteristics of various asset classes to create the “Target Current Allocation”. Next, we develop an “approved list” of investment products that we believe can add value over time. Finally, we test thousands of combinations of investment products from our approved list to find the combination that we believe is most likely to perform better than the Target Current Allocation. Over time the investment products in the strategy will most likely change.
