To help financial advisors and investors address their diverse needs, we offer our ETF and Tactical Allocation Model portfolio strategies in a range of equity and fixed income allocations. All our Model Portfolio strategies provide a range of exposure to domestic and international stocks and bonds.
Our ETF and Tactical Allocation Model portfolios are managed in the context of the current market environment and consider the outlook for expected returns and expected volatility for asset sectors. We actively adjust allocation in portfolios based on independent and ongoing economic and securities research.
Models are designed to capture the equity market basis, encompassing over 18,000 global stocks. Models are also designed with diversified investment-grade and high-yield bond exposure to capture market movement in interest rates over a universe of about 8,000 fixed income funds.
Using our proprietary Risk Scoring calculation, we can manage a portfolio to a specific risk tolerance level that matches the client’s appetite for risk in their investments.
We aim to keep expense ratios low across our model portfolios, with weighted average expense ratios as low as 0.05%.
