This segment is designed for income, and is where your short-term-assets are matched to your short-term liabilities. A portion of this segment is invested in vehicles designed to provide income for life. The remainder of the segment is invested in strategies designed to be spent over a five to seven year period, thus buying time for potential growth in the remaining segments.
This segment is designed to replenish the fixed-income portion of segment one, resulting in additional time for the long-term investments in segment three to grow. In this segment, mid-term assets are matched to mid-term liabilities. This helps create a bridge between income in segment one and long-term growth in segment three, featuring a typical time horizon of 7 to 15 years.
This segment is designed for long-term income and growth, with a typical time horizon of at least 15 years. In this segment, your long-term assets are matched to long-term liabilities.
