Next Boston QWAFAFEW Meeting:
Tuesday, 17 Jul 2018


A QWAFAFEW discussion led by:

Jarrod Wilcox
Wilcox Investment Inc and Wealthmate, Inc.

Appropriate investment risk-bearing integrates financial planning and investment management.  This talk first illustrates, with simple equations and Monte Carlo simulation, scaling risk-bearing with financial surplus over future withdrawal commitments.  It then similarly illustrates scaling risk-bearing with low probability of shortfall.  In both cases, time-varying risk aversion provides an opportunity for dynamic strategies, though speculative bubbles require compensating inputs to avoid excessive allocation extremes.  The reduction in probability of shortfall from an initial surplus over longer time horizons may scale close to the square root of time, creating an illusion of time diversification.  In contrast, from initial surplus deficit, minimizing shortfall probability is akin to playing Russian roulette.  Allocations based on minimized shortfall probability can be usefully blended with mean-variance allocations, especially for 5- to 15-year time horizons.
