ETF PM’s five absolute return strategies target gains in both up and down markets. We employ rules-based trend following in an effort to deliver strong growth with principal protection. On a long-term basis, we target average annual returns well above 12% with an overriding risk limit of 12% to 15% per year.
In order to reduce risk and maximize client value, all of these flexible portfolios may shift into cash as needed, none of them use leverage or short exposure, and we do not charge a performance fee.
The 50/50 Portfolio is half trend following and half indexing.
