The Aggressive Asset Allocation portfolio is a diversified portfolio designed for a long-term investor seeking potential for capital appreciation. Since different asset classes outperform and underperform in different situations and under different economic conditions, by combining asset classes, this portfolio aims to provide both growth as well as stability.


Research is undertaken to ensure that the diversified mix of asset classes for this portfolio is appropriate for the targeted investor profile and level of risk. We look for diversification not only across asset classes (e.g., equities versus bonds) but also within a single asset class (e.g., corporate bonds versus treasuries). Portfolio optimization techniques, weight and risk constraints are then considered to derive target allocations.


Specific Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are screened and chosen to best represent the target asset class, while also having relatively low management fees and more liquidity. For taxable accounts, we select tax-advantaged assets like municipal bonds. Each quarter, this portfolio is rebalanced to target allocations.

Allocation discipline

The portfolio will target 10 to 14 ETFs. The selection and weighting of the specific ETFs in each portfolio depends on their expected return characteristics, the degree of diversification that they provide within the portfolio, the management fees charged by each ETF, and their relative liquidity.

Sell discipline

Every quarter this portfolio is rebalanced to target weights. Sell decisions are exclusively based upon the target weight quarterly rebalance criteria.

About IBKR Asset Management

IBKR Asset Management is a pioneer in online investing. IBKR Asset Management offers a variety of portfolios, including the Asset Allocation portfolios, which are managed by IBKR Asset Management's Chief Investment Officer and Investment Management team. Diversification is about buying a basket of securities that tend to do well (or poorly) at different times and under different economic conditions. Being thoughtful about how much capital to allocate to each of these securities can result in far more consistent returns than concentrating all capital (and risk) in a single security or asset class. IBKR Asset Management offers several diversified portfolios that are dialed up or down for risk, offer good diversification across different asset classes, and attain this diversification by investing in low-cost, liquid ETFs.

Important Information

  1. Past performance is no guarantee of future results, and all investments, including those in this portfolio, involve the risk of loss, including loss of principal and a reduction in earnings.  
  2. Interactive Brokers Asset Management’s (IBKR Asset Management) Asset Allocation portfolios are made up of whole and/or fractional holdings of Exchange Traded Funds (ETF) and in certain cases individual stocks. They are not ETFs or Mutual Funds. Clients choosing to invest in these portfolios directly own the individual stocks and/or ETF shares making up these portfolios.
  3. To invest in this portfolio, IBKR Asset Management clients must:
    • Sign an Investment Management Agreement with and become clients of IBKR Asset Management;
    • Consent to trading with another Interactive Brokers LLC client who is a liquidity provider in order to be able to buy and sell fractions of ETF shares and stocks, which do not trade on the open market. IBKR Asset Management clients may revoke this consent at any time but, if they do, they will no longer be able to invest in this portfolio. (Clients can see these fractional trades with the liquidity provider listed and identified on the periodic activity statements they receive from Interactive Brokers LLC); and
    • Obtain the minimum risk score required for each portfolio and acknowledge certain risk disclosures.
  4. IBKR Asset Management manages these portfolios by trading its own funds in separate firm-owned brokerage accounts and replicating this trading in the accounts of investing clients as follows:
    • IBKR Asset Management initially funds and trades a fixed amount of its own funds in a separate brokerage account associated with each Asset Allocation portfolio;
    • IBKR Asset Management replicates the trading in these brokerage accounts in the accounts of clients investing in each specific Asset Allocation portfolio in order to implement its replication-based investment process; and
    • IBKR Asset Management periodically rebalances these portfolios to maintain target allocations.
  5. Clients may restrict any of the securities traded in their account, but should note that any restrictions they place on their investments could affect the performance of their account leading it to perform differently, worse or better, than (a) IBKR Asset Management’s account managing the portfolio or (b) other client accounts invested in the same portfolio.
  6. Quarterly rebalances in this portfolio will result in numerous transactions in many or all the ETFs in the portfolio and client accounts invested in this portfolio. Clients will incur transaction costs for any trading in their account (including periodic rebalance trades) such as commissions payable to Interactive Brokers LLC, IBKR Asset Management’s affiliated broker-dealer, which is a conflict of interest. Clients could be required to report some or all of these periodic rebalance trades on their tax forms. Clients should consult an accountant or tax attorney on tax matters as IBKR Asset Management does not provide tax advice or prepare tax documents for its clients. Interactive Brokers LLC provides certain tools to assist you with your tax filings, but these tools may only be able to support a limited number of trades.
  7. In addition to IBKR Asset Management’s management fees and Interactive Brokers LLC commissions, clients will also be charged management fees and other expenses (custodian fees, brokerage commissions, and legal and accounting fees) by the ETF issuers.
  8. Clients may find additional information on the risks, conflicts of interest, applicable brokerage commissions, fractional shares, and limitations on investments and divestments associated with these portfolios here and on the Forms and Agreements page (along with IBKR Asset Management’s full disclosures). Additional information on the performance, composition and construction process for these portfolios may be found on each Asset Allocation portfolio page.
  9. This portfolio was launched on IBKR Asset Management on November 14, 2017. On that date, IBKR Asset Management started trading its own funds in a brokerage account trading this strategy. This portfolio was opened to client investments on November 15, 2017.
  10. The actual performance of the manager account displayed on this page is based on the performance of the IBKR Asset Management proprietary account invested using this strategy and is calculated by IBKR Asset Management on a daily time-weighted basis, including cash, dividends and earnings distributions. The actual performance for this portfolio is presented “net of fees” and reflects the deduction of the IBKR Asset Management advisory fee, Interactive Brokers LLC brokerage and other commissions and expenses that a client has to pay if he invests in this portfolio after the launch date.
  11. The performance information displayed on this page is not based on the actual performance of any client accounts. The performance in client accounts may be lower or higher than the IBKR Asset Management’s account performance (displayed on this page) based on a variety of factors, such as trading restrictions imposed by the client (resulting in different account holdings), time of initial investment, amount of investment, frequency and size of cash flows in and out of the client account, applicable brokerage commissions, and different corporate actions. Clients investing in this portfolio may view the actual performance of their investment in this portfolio by logging into their IBKR Asset Management account and reviewing their customized dashboard.
  12. All graph data is as of the end of day for the referenced period, unless otherwise specified. The investment minimum is the minimum investment required to invest in a particular portfolio. The minimum amount is determined by IBKR Asset Management, based on the characteristics of the underlying portfolio. It should not be considered as specific investment advice for your investment situation.
