The Target Drawdown 10 is the original of the five portfolios in Cabana's original Target Drawdown Series. The objective of this portfolio is to seek a limited volatility range (“target drawdown”) of ten percent (10%) from peak to trough. The portfolio primarily invests in broad asset class ETFs among the five major asset classes. Allocation is distributed among major asset classes with a sensitivity to market downturn. Targeted risk parameters are managed using inverse and non-correlated assets. Investors seeking numerically defined risk objectives and a moderate volatility allocation may find this portfolio attractive. In our view, all Target Drawdown portfolios provide a viable option for most long-term investors. This portfolio uses a semi-active, tactical process whereby Cabana’s Cyclical Asset Allocation Algorithm ("CARA") seeks to identify macro changes in the economic cycle and allocate investment to the assets that perform relatively well at the identified point in the cycle. Prior to January 2024, this portfolio was known as the Target Drawdown Legacy 10.

What is Target Drawdown?


Cabana numerically quantifies acceptable levels of risk by identifying a “target drawdown” percentage for each portfolio at the onset of the investment process.


Drawdown is defined as the maximum loss, or amount an investment can be expected to fall, from peak to trough during adverse market conditions.


Monthly returns are used to calculate the drawdown percentage. This method of measurement creates a new "high-water mark" each time the portfolio’s value increases, which means drawdown is determined from a portfolio’s highest value, not from an investor’s starting balance.


All portfolios in the Target Drawdown Series are constructed with the primary goal of minimizing losses where possible - especially losses that exceed a portfolio’s target drawdown parameter. We believe this investment philosophy allows clients to remain fully invested at all times, set expectations for loss, and actively participate in favorable market conditions.

The Morningstar Target Risk Index family is designed to meet the needs of investors who would like to maintain a target level of equity exposure through a portfolio diversified across equities, bonds and inflation-hedged instruments.

Portfolios in the Morningstar Tactical Allocation category seek to provide capital appreciation and income by actively shifting allocations across investments. These portfolios have material shifts across equity regions, and bond sectors on a frequent basis. To qualify for the tactical allocation category, the fund must have minimum exposures of 10% in bonds and 20% in equity. Next, the fund must historically demonstrate material shifts in sector or regional allocations either through a gradual shift over three years or through a series of material shifts on a quarterly basis. Within a three[1]year period, typically the average quarterly changes between equity regions and bond sectors exceeds 15% or the difference between the maximum and minimum exposure to a single equity region or bond sector exceeds 50%.

The Morningstar Moderately Conservative Target Risk (TR) Index seeks approximately 40% exposure to global equity markets. This Index does not incorporate Environmental, Social, or Governance (ESG) criteria.

All indexes and categories are unmanaged and an individual cannot invest directly in an index. Index returns do not include fees or expenses.

GIPS composite selection criteria includes the following: The account must meet Cabana’s definition of discretion as outlined in the GIPS Policies and Procedures, the account must meet the composite description as outlined in the GIPS Report and P&P, the account must meet composite membership policies, the account must meet the specific composite/s minimum account size rule, the account cannot violate the composite’s significant cash flow policy for the given month.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. All investment strategies have different degrees of risk and the corresponding potential for profit or loss. Asset allocation and diversification will not necessarily improve returns and cannot eliminate the risk of investment losses.

“Target Drawdown”, “Target Beta”, and “Target Leading Sector” are all merely descriptive terms used to describe the general strategies and objectives of the portfolios, targets are is not a guarantee, nor should they be construed to suggest safety or protection from loss. There is no guarantee that portfolio performance will remain consistent with the targeted parameter.  While risk tolerance and portfolio objectives are identified on the front end for each portfolio, Cabana’s algorithm does not take any one client’s situation into account and there is no guarantee that Cabana’s strategies will be suitable for any investor. Investors and advisors should not simply rely on the name of any portfolio to determine what is suitable. It is the responsibility of investment advisors to determine what is suitable for their clients.

Investing involves risk including possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee the portfolio will meet its objective. The principal risks of the portfolio include: The portfolio may purchase ETFs at prices that exceed the net asset value of their underlying investments and may sell at prices below such net asset value, which will likely incur brokerage costs. Commodity-related companies may subject the ETFs to greater volatility than investments in traditional securities. Investments in foreign securities may involve risks such as social and political instability, market illiquidity, exchange-rate fluctuations, a high level of volatility and limited regulation. Investing in emerging markets involves different and greater risks, as these countries are substantially smaller, less liquid and more volatile than securities markets in more developed markets. The market value of fixed income investments may change in response to interest rate changes. During periods of rising interest rates, the value of fixed income securities generally decline. The market price of a security or instrument could decline, sometimes rapidly or unpredictably, due to general market conditions that are not specifically related to a particular company, such as real or perceived adverse economic or political conditions throughout the world, changes in the general outlook for corporate earnings, changes in interest or currency rates or adverse investor sentiment generally. Risks include declines in the real estate market, decreases in property revenues, increases in interest rates, increases in property taxes and operating expenses, legal and regulatory changes, a lack of credit or capital, defaults by borrowers or tenants, environmental problems and natural disasters. A portfolio and its underlying ETFs may invest a significant portion of its assets in one or more sectors and thus will be more susceptible to the risks affecting those sectors. The small- and mid-capitalization companies in which an ETF invests may be more vulnerable to adverse business or economic events than larger, more established companies.

Cabana’s judgments about the markets, the economy, or companies may not anticipate actual market movements, economic conditions or company performance, and these judgments may affect the return on your investment. The quantitative model used by Cabana may not perform as expected, particularly in volatile markets. In addition to the risks listed above, the portfolios also include Early Close/Trading Halt Risk, Credit Risk, Equity Risk, Issuer-Specific Risk, Large-Capitalization Risk, U.S. Government Securities Risk, Limited Authorized Participants, Market Makers and Liquidity Providers Risk, Model and Data Risk, Operational Risk, Trading Risk and New/Smaller Fund Risk.

The Risk Number® is a proprietary scaled index developed by Nitrogen (formerly known as “Riskalyze”) to reflect risk for both advisors and their clients. One of the most important drivers of the Risk Number is the measurement of downside risk in a portfolio. Cabana’s Multi-Strategy Portfolios performance is submitted to Nitrogen and the portfolios are given a “Risk Number” for advisor analysis. More on these calculations can be found at
