Here is a proposal how you could allocate your assets. It is how I have allocated my own money. You can change this numbers depending on your risk appetite.
20% Global Market Rotation Strategy GMRS
I consider this as the core investment strategy because the 5 global markets together represent well the total world stock market. I would reduce this 20% allocation and increase GSRS allocation if the strategy switches to smaller volatile markets like Latin America.
20% to the low volatility Global Sector Rotation Strategy GSRS with 10% for each of the two sector ETFs
This is a good diversification to the GMRS strategy. This strategy invests in long lasting global trends like solar and wind energy. These trends are normally not too much correlated to the stock market which makes it a good diversification.
20% Maximum Yield Strategy MYRS
This strategy is a little bit more specialized as it gets most of its return from the investment in inverse volatility. As long as the VIX Futures market is in steep contango you will earn about 3% roll yield per month. I use this strategy for inverse volatility exposure and not GMRSE
40% Bond Rotation Strategy
This is a very safe strategy with low volatility or risk. The return is smaller than for the other strategies, but the Return to Risk ratio is very high.

Frank… How would you incorporate the new UIS strategy into this?

the UIS is also rather a core strategy, so you might use 20% of the Bond Rotation Allocation for it. You will see this nicely balances the whole portfolio and lowers volatility while increasing the overall Sharpe.
Here how this would look like in the 2008-2014 period:
