Domestic Model Portfolio Could Shine After Election Day

How riskier assets perform following Election Day remains to be seen, but some market observers believe the safest bet will remain domestic stocks.

Advisors can tap into that theme with WisdomTree’s Core Equity Model Portfolio, which is part of the issuers broader suite of Modern Alpha model portfolios.

“This model portfolio is designed for growth-oriented investors with a long-term horizon looking to maximize long-term potential for capital growth through a globally diversified set of equity ETFs,” according to WisdomTree.

Over the near-term, more fiscal stimulus could boost the case for this model portfolio.

“The economic recovery has leveled off following a strong initial rebound. For the past several months, equities have traded in tandem with the likelihood for further fiscal stimulus and have stagnated as the outlook for such stimulus has dimmed,” according to WisdomTree research.

A collaboration among several Franklin County agencies received a $900,000 award for a new safety model to combat domestic violence and protect victims. 

The 2020 Improving Criminal Justice Responses to Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, and Stalking grant from the U.S. Department of Justice and the Office for Violence Against Women, will establish the Blueprint for Safety model through September 2023, Franklin County and Columbus officials announced Tuesday morning.

Originally developed and implemented in Saint Paul, Minnesota, the new model will create a more-coordinated community response and enhance victim safety by focusing on collaboration and information-sharing among service providers.

The Blueprint for Safety, grounded in the experiences of victims of violence, will support agencies’ ability to intercede in new acts of violence, intimidation or coercion, and place added accountability on domestic violence offenders, officials said in a news release announcing the program.

Why domestic violence calls are surging for Asian American women amid the pandemic

When the pandemic-related lockdowns started in March, staff at several Asian American domestic violence organizations watched with concern as a hush fell over their work.

Clients who had previously told them of abusive partners who choked them, struck them in the face or threw them down stairs were now saying: “Don’t call me. It’s not safe.” Not only were their partners watching them around the clock, but many took away their phones, cars and credit cards, making it harder for women to seek help or leave.

But after lockdowns eased in May and June, calls for help surged as Asian American women reported increased abuse during the pandemic. Now, some experts say they’re seeing another spike as fears of another lockdown in the fall or winter are prompting women to flee abusive situations when they have the chance.

“We don’t know if there’s going to be a second wave,” said

Indian Women Spend 5 Hours a Day on Domestic Work, Survey Shows

(Bloomberg) — Women in India spend about five hours a day on unpaid domestic work, or thrice as much time as men, according to a new survey by the government.



A woman cooks with a clay oven inside her home in Palwal district, Haryana, India, on Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018. Time is running out for India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi to shore up the support of rural voters who underpinned his rise to power in 2014, when he won India's biggest mandate in three decades. The budget on Feb. 1 will be the last opportunity for him to announce significant fiscal measures that could win back villagers.

Only about 18% of women participated in employment and related activities in a day, against 57% of men, according to the findings of the first Time-Use survey by the Ministry of Statistics.
