Permanent Pro Portfolio

This portfolio by Harry Browne is designed to perform fairly well in any economic condition. It is a very simple diversification strategy with only 4 asset classes.

What's in this portfolio?

The investment seeks to provide investment results that, before expenses, correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the S&P 500 Index. The Trust seeks to achieve its investment objective by holding a portfolio of the common stocks that are included in the index, with the weight of each stock in the Portfolio substantially corresponding to the weight of such stock in the index.

The investment seeks to track as closely as possible, before fees and expenses, the total return of the Bloomberg Barclays US Treasury 1-3 Year Index. The fund will invest at least 90% of its net assets (including, for this purpose, any borrowings for investment purposes) in securities included in the index. The index includes all publicly-issued U.S. Treasury securities that have a remaining maturity of greater than or equal to one year and less than three years, are rated investment grade, and have $300 million or more of outstanding face value. The securities in the index must be denominated in U.S. dollars and must be fixed-rate and non-convertible.

The investment seeks to track the performance of a market-weighted Treasury index with a long-term dollar-weighted average maturity. The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of the Bloomberg Barclays U.S. Long Treasury Bond Index. This index includes fixed income securities issued by the U.S. Treasury (not including inflation-protected bonds), with maturities greater than 10 years. Under normal circumstances, at least 80% of the fund's assets will be invested in bonds included in the index.

The investment seeks to reflect generally the performance of the price of gold. The Trust seeks to reflect such performance before payment of the Trust's expenses and liabilities. It is not actively managed. The Trust does not engage in any activities designed to obtain a profit from, or to ameliorate losses caused by, changes in the price of gold. The advisor intends to constitute a simple and cost-effective means of making an investment similar to an investment in gold. An investment in physical gold requires expensive and sometimes complicated arrangements in connection with the assay, transportation, warehousing and insurance of the metal.

Steps to Build your Portfolio

Here are the steps to build your portfolio from scratch:

1. Get Your Brokerage Account Ready

>>What is an Investment Broker?<<|>>Top 5 Free Investment Brokers<<

1.1 Pick an Investment Broker

  • For US investors, we recommend Robinhood.com (click for one Free stock)
  • For EU investors, we recommend eToro.com (click for Free signup)

-> They offer 0% commission investing, no or low minimum deposits, a simple and powerful platform, and a wide variety of securities.

1.2 Create the account

  • Follow the broker registration steps. They may ask for the following, among other things:
    • Identification document (ID or Passport)
    • Proof that you live at the address you have indicated
    • Sign and accept certain agreements and legal documents (standard)
  • Submit the account application in their app or on their site.
  • You will receive an email within one business day (may vary) confirming your approval or asking for further information.

1.3 Deposit your investment amount

  • Link up your bank account (don’t worry, it’s totally secure)
  • Deposit the amount of money you want to invest

2. Build your portfolio

Enter this portfolio allocation in the table below:

  1. Enter the amount you want to invest (for example, $ 10,000) in the upper-right cell.
  2. Insert each asset you want your portfolio to include:
    1. Asset name (eg Apple Inc.)
    2. Asset ticker (eg AAPL)
    3. Look up the asset’s ticker on Yahoo! Finance and enter its current share price (eg, $135) in the corresponding box in the Price per Share column.
    4. Enter the desired asset allocation (percentage of your total investment amount you want to allocate towards the asset, eg 30%)
  3. Repeat the previous step for all the assets you wish to invest in the rows below.

Adjust the broker requirements:

  1. Fractional Shares: if your broker allows you to invest in fractional shares (pieces of stocks), select “Yes”, otherwise, select “No”.
  2. Minimum Amount Per Order: insert your broker’s minimum investment amount (eg $50 per order)

Review the final result of your portfolio:

  1. The Number of Shares and Value to Invest columns will show how your portfolio should look according to the Investment Amount and the Allocation you have chosen.
    • The Number of Shares indicates how many shares you can buy of each asset to achieve the desired allocation (eg 10 AAPL shares)
    • Value of Investment shows the money amount to invest (number of shares times the price per share, eg $1,350 value)
  2. The Cash line shows the amount of money that would be leftover when your portfolio is completed.
    • If the cash is positive, you would have some excess cash for future investments.
    • If there is no cash leftover, you would be all invested. 
    • If the cash is negative, you would need that amount of cash to complete your portfolio (at a minimum).

3. Implement your portfolio

3.1 Execute your portfolio in your brokerage account:

  1. Search for each asset:
    • Go to your broker’s searcher
    • Enter the asset ticker
  2. Select the number of shares that our table indicates
  3. Choose the type of order you prefer (eg Market Buy)
  4. Execute the orders by clicking “Buy” or “Submit”

3.2 Rebalance your portfolio:

  1. Review this portfolio report periodically (weekly, monthly, etc.)
  2. Update the asset prices on the above table to match the current asset prices.
  3. Determine how many shares to buy or sell to rebalance your portfolio
    • Updated Number of Shares (table) – Actual Number of Shares (broker) = Number of Shares to buy or sell to rebalance your portfolio
    • Eg 10 shares of AAPL – 12 shares of AAPL = -2 shares -> Need to sell 2 shares of AAPL to rebalance your portfolio
