To bring that down to 2% of AUM would require an account of $200k, which is roughly twice the investment assets of 80% of investors. And to bring the risk down to where it really should be for one’s B3/B- rated tranche --0.25% to no more than 0.5% -- the asset base needed to manage the risk becomes humongous.
