Targeted Maturity Treasury Portfolio
Treasury securities attraction as a “safe haven” during times of market stress makes them an ideal complement to stock portfolios. The challenge for investors is to know which ones to own. Using Sandpiper’s proprietary models of fair value, the Targeted Maturity Treasury Portfolio emphasizes long maturities when those rates are above fair value and short or intermediate Treasuries when long rates are too low. The benefit to our clients is having a fixed allocation of their total portfolio that potentiallyoutperforms during periods of market stress while earning a competitive risk free rate.
