Tactical asset allocation is an active portfolio management strategy that aims to offer absolute or risk-adjusted returns by switching among different asset classes. Such a strategy allows the fund to benefit from the market pricing anomalies or strong market sectors. Fund managers have wide discretion when it comes to asset allocations using tactical asset allocation, and this may result in big fluctuations in their levels of risk.
