The race is not always won by the fastest. The Tortoise Strategy represents the conventional wisdom that slow and steady wins the race.
This strategy primarily seeks to provide preservation of capital by investing approximately 80% in fixed income mutual funds. Like a tortoise, these funds seek to provide a slow but consistent pace. However, tortoises are renowned for their long life spans and this strategy also seeks to provide growth of capital with the 20% holdings in equity mutual funds. This strategy is suitable for investors with a conservative risk tolerance.
