The Kahneman-Tversky Portfolio is a simple Dual Momentum Portfolio that needs little management/adjustment. It is split into two portions – one that is relatively slow in reacting to changes in market conditions – the Kahneman portion – and one that reacts a little more quickly (but may be more subject to whipsaw trades) – the Tversky portion. Performance over the past 13 months looks like this:
with very low volatility over the the past 6 months (purple line7). Although the portfolio is trailing the benchmark AOR Fund a little, some investors may be more comfortable with the low volatility (compared to the green line).
