Target Drawdown Professional 7


December 2021

The Target Drawdown Legacy 7 is one of five portfolios in Cabana's original Target Drawdown Legacy Series. The objective of this portfolio is to seek a limited volatility range (“target drawdown”) of seven percent (7%) from peak to trough. It primarily invests in broad asset class ETFs among the five major asset classes. Allocation is inherently weighted toward low beta asset classes. Targeted risk parameters are managed using inverse and non-correlated assets. Conservative investors seeking numerically defined risk objectives and a lower (or reduced) volatility asset allocation may find this portfolio attractive. In our view, all Target Drawdown portfolios provide a viable option for most long-term investors. This portfolio differs from Cabana’s Target Drawdown Professional 7 in that proprietary Target Drawdown ETFs are not used in this portfolio or any other Legacy Model. More information on Cabana’s enhanced Target Drawdown Professional Series can be found here.

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

The performance returns, benchmark comparisons, and metrics in this factsheet represent actual composite returns during a time when actual client funds were invested. Unless otherwise indicated, performance data, benchmark comparisons, asset allocation charts, drawdown, and other statistics are for illustrative purposes, calculated as end of month, and shown gross of advisory fees but net of trading costs. Asset allocation may vary intramonth if a reallocation has occurred. Performance data is expressed in U.S. dollar currency and it includes the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains.

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” is merely a descriptive term used to describe the general strategy and objective of the portfolio, it is not a guarantee, nor should it be construed to suggest safety or protection from loss. There is no guarantee that portfolio performance will remain consistent with the targeted drawdown parameter.  While risk tolerance and targeted “drawdown” 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. Cabana manages assets on multiple custodial platforms. Performance data, statistics, including drawdown, and asset allocation for specific investors will vary based upon differences in associated costs, inflows and outflows, custodial fees, and asset availability during the reporting period and may not be identical to reported data. All references to Cabana’s proprietary algorithm in this fact sheet refer to the most current version of the algorithm as of the date this fact sheet is published. The performance returns shown in this piece are derived from a composite of accounts that executed trades in strict accordance with Cabana investment strategies.  Investors will not achieve the same performance returns if their account did not execute trades in strict conformance with Cabana’s trade signals. Prior to May 2020, this portfolio was known as Cabana’s Target Drawdown 7.
