Fund Description

The Ivy Asset Strategy Fund Class A (WASAX) is an actively managed world allocation fund that holds a combination of stocks, bonds and cash. As a world fund, WASAX can hold stocks and bonds from across the globe, including emerging and developed markets. There are no market cap or credit rating requirements. The fund has a very flexible mandate and can shift wildly between asset classes, eliminating some altogether.

Given this widely sweeping and shifting mandate, WASAX could make for an interesting side position for investors. Even more so, given its low costs. The fund is managed by Ivy Investment Management Co.
