Most of us have too much in bonds

Charley Ellis

Roula Khalaf, Editor of the FT, selects her favourite stories in this weekly newsletter.

The writer is a former chair of Yale’s Investment Committee, an ex-board member of Vanguard and the author of 21 books, mainly about finances and investing.

It has long been shown that the returns on bonds are lower than those for equities for long-term investors. And most investors are going to be investing for so long that a bond-laden portfolio is far from optimal for them.

A century ago there was a near monopoly of bonds in investor portfolios until economist Edgar Lawrence Smith proved that higher returns that could be earned by investing in equities. Gradually, over the following decades, a consensus developed that a 60/40 stock-to-bond ratio was “prudent” for both individuals and pensions and endowments.

Then, David Swensen, when he was Yale’s brilliant chief investment officer, changed the question from “what seems prudent?” to “what makes logical sense?” Since Yale had been around for nearly 300 years and planned to be around for at least 300 more, he began to ask whether it made sense to invest in bonds for the long term.

Fortunately, Nobel laureate James Tobin had developed a formula for smoothing the year-to-year distributions from the endowment to the university and the application of this formula liberated the endowment from concern about short-term asset and income fluctuations so that it could focus on long-term results. That liberated Swensen to focus on the very long term, equity investments and their higher returns. The rest is history.

Most individual investors incorrectly define “long term” as a typical “market cycle” of a few years. And for most institutions five years — or the average tenure of investment committee members — seems, too often, to be the working definition of the long term. The reality of investment horizons stand in stark contrast to these conventions. Indeed, most individuals begin investing at about age 30 and continue to invest until their late 80s — suggesting that their real investment horizon spans half a century. Most institutions with endowments expect to stay in operation for at least 100 years. These longer-time horizons should be used to frame their critical investment policy decisions, including their allocation to bonds.

Most individual investors have more money invested in bonds and fixed-income equivalents than they realise. When assessing their investment portfolio’s asset allocation, they look only at their formal bond investments. They do not include in their thinking two important bond-equivalents: future social security benefits (which are effectively inflation-protected annuities from the government) and the equity value of their homes (a relatively stable asset that does not fluctuate with the stock market and rises with inflation).

For most investors, the present value of these fixed-income equivalents are big numbers and may, for some, total more than their 401(k) retirement fund assets. The value of both should be included in assessing the extent of needed bond holdings when structuring each individuals’ total financial portfolio. Institutions similarly have diverse and multiple sources of regular funding. As such, endowments could and should be “all equity” or nearly so. When factoring in the reliable cash-flows over the very long run, what was once a “risky” investment policy should now be appreciated as “prudent”.

Since most individuals succumb to the conventional wisdom of a 60/40 stock and bond portfolio, they will probably have less than they would like to have when they get to retirement. This is becoming a societal problem with rising numbers of individuals without the financial assets needed for lengthening lifespans. The sooner we deal with it, the easier the solving will be.

Yes, there are exceptions where bonds are appropriate investments. When there is a substantial expenditure on the horizon where cash will be needed (for example, for a starter home or a child’s college tuition), bonds for asset stability make great sense. And, historically, many people have relied on the predictability of bond income when they worry about funding their retirement. However, there is a way to create the necessary income stream, but not forsake the higher returns of equities. Instead, a sensible and pragmatic “spending rule” can be employed. 

A pragmatic solution for an individual with enough savings is to use the average of the year-end asset value held in his or her portfolio over five to seven years and to apply a sensible spending rate. A 5 per cent spending rate should allow you to retain the purchasing power of your assets — or a higher percentage of say, 7 per cent or 8 per cent will give you a more generous spending stream if you are comfortable spending down the principal over time. In any case, investors can create a sustainable income stream from adopting their own spending rule. While nothing is ever perfect, this simple scheme avoids the need to bulk up on, or even use, bonds late in life.

Business Insider

College tour season is about to kick off. Here are 10 tips from college tour guides to have a successful campus visit.

  • As spring starts, colleges around the country welcome parents and students to campus for tours. 
  • College tour guides want people to arrive on time, ask the right questions, and have fun.
  • They also recommend students take the tour on their own, without their parents.

Spring break is right around the corner, and for many high school students and their parents, that means many will be hitting the road to tour colleges around the country.

To make the most of your visit, Business Insider spoke with college students and tour guides. They know the campuses like the back of their hands, and they know how to walk backward.

Here are the dos and don'ts of college tours from student guides.

1. Get there with no time to spare, but don't be late

You won't get points for arriving early, so try to arrive on time. But if you do happen to arrive late , there's no need to worry.

"If something comes up and you are late, ask your guide what you missed once the tour finishes," Skyler Kawecki-Muonio, a senior at Sarah Lawrence College, told BI. "They will happily fill you in."

2. Dress to impress, but don't sacrifice comfort

It's important to look nice, but you don't have to don a jacket and tie. Tour-goers should put their best foot forward with a sturdy pair of walking shoes , and don't forget to dress for the weather.

"At Fairleigh Dickinson, tours go out rain or shine, so make sure to wear clothes that will keep you warm," Emily Bone, class of '25, said.

3. Don't forget to sign in, but skip the CV

Most schools have a check-in desk where you'll receive a campus map and other literature. But don't bother furnishing schools with your portfolio.

"Students can leave their resumes at home," Henry Millar, a senior at William & Mary, said. "Tour guides generally do not have any sway in the admissions process whatsoever, so feel free to save the paper."

4. Pay attention on the tour, but do it solo if possible

Some schools offer the option of letting parents and kids take separate tours, which has advantages.

"Get excited about your child's potential future in college, but give them some space to see what they think of that school on their own," Nathan Weisbrod, a junior at Wesleyan University, told BI.

Students can comfortably ask questions without a parent present and compare notes afterward.

5. Ask all your questions, but avoid personal interrogations

This is the time to inquire about any aspect of campus life , and don't feel shy about speaking up.

"Tour guides love getting questions because it allows us to cater the tour, especially in small groups, toward the needs and interests of the families on that specific tour," Halle Spataro, class of '24 at Bucknell University, said.

But some topics are off-limits, so don't ask your tour guide about their SAT/ACT scores or what they wrote about in their essay.

6. Speak up, but let the student take the lead

Parents may be tempted to raise their hand again and again, but this tour is about the student, so there should be space to let them shine.

"Try to take the backseat — or the passenger seat — but refrain from driving all of your child's interactions," Julian Jacklin, class of '25 at Reed College, said. "Students who feel they can own that experience usually ask the most questions and engage with the tour more."

7. Say thanks, but don't leave with questions unanswered

Maybe your guide didn't hear you, or your kid was reluctant to speak up. You can still get the information you want before leaving.

"There's a lot of information students are getting that day and a lot of excitement with being in a new place, which can make people forget to ask certain questions," Lorenzo Mars, a junior at Pepperdine University, said.

Therefore, get your tour guide's email address so that you can follow up afterward.

8. You may know exactly what school is right, but keep an open mind

Don't be surprised if a city-living kid is suddenly intrigued by a small-town setting.

"The college search and college experience are all about getting to know yourself better and growing, so on a tour, students have to trust themselves and their judgment of the 'world' they've just stepped into," Thomas Elias, class of '24 at University of Scranton, said.

9. Take in as much as you can, but remember to have fun

Sure, preparing for the next four years can be scary and stressful. But it's also an exciting milestone, so enjoy the ride.

"These tours serve as great opportunities to learn more about colleges — along with their cities, culture, and people," Connor Gee, a sophomore at the University of Mississippi, said. "Have fun with it!"

10. Weigh the pros and cons of the school, but don't stop there

Your tour may be over, but you can still learn other ways to immerse yourself in college life .

"See if the school offers additional experiences, like eating in the cafeteria or attending a class," Emily Balda, class of '24 at Seton Hall University, said. "Consider it 'food for thought.'"

Meet the Outstanding Faculty Award Recipients of 2024

  • by Jessica Heath and Matt Marcure
  • May 20, 2024

Recognizing excellence in research and teaching, the College of Engineering celebrates its faculty members with outstanding faculty awards yearly. Departments nominate faculty members who are selected to receive the honors by the college's Faculty Awards Committee.    

Four faculty members will receive outstanding faculty awards at the College of Engineering Awards Celebration on June 3.    

Angelique Louie

Outstanding Faculty Teaching Award   

Angelique louie , biomedical engineering   .

Angelique Louie's passion for education has left an indelible mark on the Department of Biomedical Engineering.   

It is because of her pioneering work that the department's undergraduate senior design series focuses on training through translational design, offering students the opportunity to solve real-world problems from institutions like the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. Louie has also created several keystone courses for the undergraduate program and has developed classes meant to foster student success, such as one for freshmen and sophomores interested in undergraduate research.   

Her dedication to teaching has led to several leadership positions. Louie served as the faculty director of the Undergraduate Research Center from 2013–16 and provided critical support for the university, receiving high-profile awards like the Beckman Scholars Program from the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation. It was also due to her spearheading efforts that the Department of Biomedical Engineering received the first ABET accreditation for its undergraduate program, which ensures graduates have the requisite skills to enter the global workforce.   

Louie joined UC Davis in 2002. She received her bachelor's in electrical engineering from UC Davis and holds a master's in electrical engineering from UCLA and a Ph.D. in cell biology from UC Irvine.    

Scott McCormack

Outstanding Junior Faculty Award   

Scott j. mccormack , materials science and engineering   .

An expert in high-temperature ceramics, Scott McCormack joined the college in 2019, where he applies his skills in materials synthesis, crystallography and calorimetry for the discovery of new materials that can withstand the harshest conditions, like ultra-high temperatures, for applications in hypersonic platforms, space exploration and nuclear fission and fusion reactors.   

To experiment on materials at temperatures up to 4,000 degrees Celsius, McCormack designed an environmental conical nozzle levitator with dual-wavelength lasers to study ultra-high temperature materials and ceramics in a controlled, container-free environment.    

McCormack is currently involved in two projects funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research. He is the lead PI on a congressionally funded program that focuses on using ultra-high-temperature ceramics for hypersonic platform manufacturing. He also serves as co-PI on a project supported through the office's Multi-University Research Initiative, which focuses on investigating compositionally complex ceramics for hypersonic platforms.   

McCormack earned his bachelor's degree in materials engineering from the University of Wollongong in Australia and his Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He received an NSF CAREER Award in 2021 and an Excellence in Teaching Award from the UC Davis College of Engineering in 2023.    

Vladimir Filkov

Outstanding Mid-Career Faculty Award  

Vladimir filkov , computer science   .

Vladimir Filkov turns working with data into an art form by seeing what is possible within the details. A consummate data scientist, Filkov has been applying data science, AI and machine learning methods to several areas including software engineering, life sciences and, most recently, medicine.   

Since arriving at UC Davis in 2002, his contributions have been recognized many times over, including five Distinguished Paper Awards and two Test of Time Awards from the Association for Computing Machinery, or ACM, International Conference on the Foundations of Software Engineering. The latter honors were for his formative papers on the community structure within open-source software projects and the potential impact of biased datasets on the performance of prediction techniques of bug-detection software.   

As the director of translational data science for the UC Davis DataLab, Filkov oversees projects and programs that build data science bridges with UC Davis Health. In one such project with UC Davis doctors, he and his team developed and deployed a model of patient admissions during the pandemic, used daily by nurses and doctors to anticipate resource needs.  

Filkov received his M.S. and Ph.D. in computer science at Stony Brook University. He was named an ACM Distinguished Member in 2020.

Savvino-storozhevsky monastery and museum.

Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery and Museum

Zvenigorod's most famous sight is the Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery, which was founded in 1398 by the monk Savva from the Troitse-Sergieva Lavra, at the invitation and with the support of Prince Yury Dmitrievich of Zvenigorod. Savva was later canonised as St Sabbas (Savva) of Storozhev. The monastery late flourished under the reign of Tsar Alexis, who chose the monastery as his family church and often went on pilgrimage there and made lots of donations to it. Most of the monastery’s buildings date from this time. The monastery is heavily fortified with thick walls and six towers, the most impressive of which is the Krasny Tower which also serves as the eastern entrance. The monastery was closed in 1918 and only reopened in 1995. In 1998 Patriarch Alexius II took part in a service to return the relics of St Sabbas to the monastery. Today the monastery has the status of a stauropegic monastery, which is second in status to a lavra. In addition to being a working monastery, it also holds the Zvenigorod Historical, Architectural and Art Museum.

Belfry and Neighbouring Churches

keystone college campus tour

Located near the main entrance is the monastery's belfry which is perhaps the calling card of the monastery due to its uniqueness. It was built in the 1650s and the St Sergius of Radonezh’s Church was opened on the middle tier in the mid-17th century, although it was originally dedicated to the Trinity. The belfry's 35-tonne Great Bladgovestny Bell fell in 1941 and was only restored and returned in 2003. Attached to the belfry is a large refectory and the Transfiguration Church, both of which were built on the orders of Tsar Alexis in the 1650s.  

keystone college campus tour

To the left of the belfry is another, smaller, refectory which is attached to the Trinity Gate-Church, which was also constructed in the 1650s on the orders of Tsar Alexis who made it his own family church. The church is elaborately decorated with colourful trims and underneath the archway is a beautiful 19th century fresco.

Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral

keystone college campus tour

The Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral is the oldest building in the monastery and among the oldest buildings in the Moscow Region. It was built between 1404 and 1405 during the lifetime of St Sabbas and using the funds of Prince Yury of Zvenigorod. The white-stone cathedral is a standard four-pillar design with a single golden dome. After the death of St Sabbas he was interred in the cathedral and a new altar dedicated to him was added.

keystone college campus tour

Under the reign of Tsar Alexis the cathedral was decorated with frescoes by Stepan Ryazanets, some of which remain today. Tsar Alexis also presented the cathedral with a five-tier iconostasis, the top row of icons have been preserved.

Tsaritsa's Chambers

keystone college campus tour

The Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral is located between the Tsaritsa's Chambers of the left and the Palace of Tsar Alexis on the right. The Tsaritsa's Chambers were built in the mid-17th century for the wife of Tsar Alexey - Tsaritsa Maria Ilinichna Miloskavskaya. The design of the building is influenced by the ancient Russian architectural style. Is prettier than the Tsar's chambers opposite, being red in colour with elaborately decorated window frames and entrance.
