Static Portfolio (Strategic Asset Allocation)

No one knows the future, give me exposure to everything, all the time.

You want a bunch of uncorrelated asset classes, globally diversified (that bear risk premia) and maybe some commodities.

Usually, the more balanced the weights are between the asset classes, the smaller the overall volatility of the portfolio - the smoother the returns are.
