We have chosen a US Balanced Equity and Bond index as the benchmark for simplicity and clarity. The choice of benchmark can be very important and the most appropriate benchmark is frequently unique to a client. A full allocation to equities is likely to be incompatible with a well-balanced portfolio so be mindful of volatility and drawdowns when comparing the annualised performance below.
