Adaptive Asset Allocation Strategy
Taking a top-down, macro approach to investing.
Our effective strategy is designed to follow the trends of the markets to mitigate risk exposure to weak asset classes and seek asset classes that are exhibiting near term momentum.
We combine two different tactical approaches (momentum and risk parity) into one algorithm.
Our model builds a portfolio that responds to market conditions with the objective of simultaneously maximizing return while minimizing risk.
Our Portfolio Selection Process
At the beginning of each month, we measure the trend momentum and volatility of the 10 exchanged-traded funds (ETF’s) that track the following market indices:
