Portable Alpha(redirected from 120/20)
An investment strategy that involves making investments that have little to do with the overall trend in the portfolio. In other words, a portable alpha strategy seeks out investments that exceed the performance of the index or market upon which most of one's portfolio is based. In technical terms, a portable alpha strategy seeks to separate a portfolio's alpha from its beta.
