June 2019 updates: Risk Number = 70 (*we lowered the Aggressive portfolio to the neutral position) Kinetics Market Opportunities fund is an odd one that
we are trying. We are aware of the 3 star rating. The performance is highly tied to TPL (Texas Pacific Land) and Bitcoin. It is only a 8% holding.
March 2019 updates: Risk Number = 76
International investing involves special risks such as currency fluctuation and political instability and may not be suitable for all investors. These risks are often heightened for investments in emerging markets. The prices of small and mid-cap stocks are generally more volatile than large cap stocks.

January 2019 updates: Risk Number = 72
We replaced the Delaware Emerging Markets fund with American Funds New Perspective fund. Rationale was that going to a world fund vs emerging markets due to tariff issues which should lower emerging markets returns over next few yrs. World gives lower exposure to emerging markets with the ability to increase when fund manager feels timing is right.
Aggressive Model - in this model we increased our weighting in international and emerging markets based on expectations of continued economic recovery overseas. Specifically as a compliment to our existing holdings in John Hancock International Growth (symbol GOGIX) and Delaware Emerging Market (symbol DEMIX) we have diversified our international risk by adding Columbia Overseas Value (symbol COSZX). Also we added Kinetics Market Opportunities Fund (symbol KMKNX) which is a non diversified strategy which correlates negatively to other positions in this model. Part of it's investment appeal is it's small exposure to cryptocurrency with an allocation in Bitcoin Investment Trust (symbol GBTC).
The main allocation adjustment on the fixed income side was to lower overall duration by adding a bank loan position in Eaton Vance Floating Rate (symbol EIFAX).
