Index Plus Equity Strategy


Total Portfolio Management, or TPM, is Nottinghill's partially indexed approach to the management of a taxable individual's or tax-exempt institution's overall portfolio. Included are U.S. equities in multiple capitalization ranges, a meaningful position in emerging markets (international) equities, a U.S. fixed income component, and positions in three alternative asset classes.


Portfolio Structure

Different clients are subject to different sets of circumstances; therefore, Total Portfolio Management encompasses three possible asset allocation structures: Conservative (50% equities), Baseline (65% equities), and Aggressive (80% equities). The Baseline structure is the following:

Equities - 65% of the Total Portfolio

  U.S. Large Capitalization -
Actively Managed    
  U.S. Mid Capitalization -
  U.S. Small Capitalization -
  International Emerging Markets -

U.S. large capitalization equities are governed by Nottinghill's flagship Value Plus Equity Strategy, which traditionally has outperformed its large capitalization benchmark. The indexed positions are invested in low-cost Vanguard Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs).

U.S. Fixed Income - 20% of the Total Portfolio 

The Select Four Bond Strategy – an intermediate-term Treasury component and three actively managed bond mutual funds.

Alternatives Group - 15% of the Total Portfolio

  Emerging Markets Government Bonds - Indexed   33%
  Gold -
  Real Estate Investment Trusts - Indexed        33

Each Alternatives Group component consists of low-cost ETF shares, and is fully invested in the asset class at all times.


Investment Strategy Objectives

Total Portfolio Management has been researched thoroughly and structured carefully. TPM's investment objectives are the following:

A Positive Inflation-Adjusted Investment Return – A Life of the Strategy investment return greater than the inflation rate of the overall U.S. economy

Value-Added – A Life of the Strategy investment return superior to that of a benchmark Balanced Index weighted in accordance with the portfolio’s asset allocation structure

Value-Added with Benchmark Volatility – Life of the Strategy investment return volatility comparable to that of a benchmark Balanced Index weighted in accordance with the portfolio’s asset allocation structure

Nottinghill results are presented net-of-the management fee
Nottinghill Investment Advisers, Ltd., is an independent, registered investment adviser utilizing a number of large capitalization equity and widely diversified balanced investment strategies. The Total Portfolio Management investment return, which is provided net-of-the management fee, is a combination of the actual investment returns associated with Nottinghill’s Value Plus Equity Strategy, three equity and three fixed income mutual funds/ETFs, a Treasury ladder, gold bullion/an ETF tracking the price of gold, and, after January 1, 2014, two alternatives indexes/ETFs. The investment returns are actual; however, the combination is simulated, and such simulated data have certain inherent limitations. First, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not reflect actual trading. Second, since trades have not actually been executed, results may contain an under- or over-compensation for the impact, if any, of certain market factors. The above investment return is associated with the time period from January 1, 2002 to September 30, 2017, and has been annualized. To receive a complete, more detailed description of the Total Portfolio Management performance data series or a complete list of all Nottinghill performance data series, please contact Nottinghill Investment Advisers, Ltd. Whether simulated or actual, past performance is no guarantee of future results.


Investment Strategy Advantages

When evaluating Nottinghill and Total Portfolio Management, consider once again the principal Strategy advantages:

  • A seasoned team of investment professionals - the good times have been great, and the others have made these individuals even better at what they do

  • The complete answer - a widely diversified, partially indexed structure; one consolidated statement

  • Low management fees, transaction costs, and taxes – the Nottinghill fee is a blend of the equity management fee schedule and 0.25% of U.S. Fixed Income assets per year; the weighted-average ETF expense ratio is 0.30%; low turnover, and tax-friendly

  • Solid performance at a low level of risk – value-added active strategies and the traditional performance advantages of indexing, with below-average risk (volatility)
