An asset allocation strategy diversifies investments across different asset classes and global markets with the goal of improving the balance of reward and risk.

A strategy of diversification
The funds can tactically adjust stock and bond allocations and positions within the allocations
Equity and fixed-income allocations have a flexible range of +/- 15%, allowing the strategies to take advantage of the most attractive opportunities. Exposures within allocations can be shifted to emphasize different risks — equities, credit, rates, inflation
The senior team members have been in place at Putnam for more than a decade, providing experience managing asset allocation strategies through multiple market cycles since 1994.
