I've been in the industry four years now and it was nice coming in prior to 2007. I like the straight asset allocation model with the 11 plus classes, but occasionally I've dabble into blend funds for the smaller accounts. My blend funds consisted of large cap and small cap blend funds. Now, has anyone ever tried going vertically (i.e. up and down Morningstar's style box)? I'm thinking instead of the growth and value blend of large and small caps, why not go with all cap growth and all cap value. Any inputs will be appreciated.
