Fixed Income Portfolio
Created to be a diversifier for stock holdings, with a market agnostic view on rates. There is an equal exposure to short, medium, and long bonds of good quality. International bonds that are dollar hedged are preferred, as currency volatility should be avoided in a portfolio that exists for safety.
