Interesting to note that Wellesley hasn't done so well since the beginning of the year.
Wellesley YTD: -7.45% (35% stocks / 65% bonds), which seems in line with the expected return for similar asset allocations (large value stocks are down about 20% YTD and intermediate term corporate bonds are pretty much flat).
Compare that to its cousin:
Wellington YTD: -8.96% (65% stocks / 35% bonds)
Wellington seems to have outperformed Wellesley quite markedly.
