A Core Equity Fund That Can Become Defensive – With a Risk Adjusted Approach to Security Selection
How the fund is managed:
Sharpe ratio research is conducted daily on almost 2,000 ETFs. Sharpe ratio, developed by Nobel Laureate William F. Sharpe, has become an industry standard for calculating risk-adjusted return of a portfolio.
Sharpe ratio is a tool to compare risk and return characteristics of different types of ETFs. We identify ETFs with persistently high or growing Sharpe ratios.
As market conditions and Sharpe ratios change, the fund can reduce or increase equity exposure. A diversified portfolio of 8-15 ETFs is constructed accounting for market volatility and return potential.
