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.

“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.
