Investment Objective

The ETF Action Sector & Industry Active Index Model (AIM) Portfolio’s primary objective is to outperform the broad U.S. Market as measured by the S&P 500. To accomplish this objective the investment committee utilizes an actively managed process that is governed and implemented using a transparent and repeatable framework.

Key Facts

  • Over/under weight positions driven by transparent, multi-faceted, and repeatable ratings process

Philosophy

Returns across sectors and industries often diverge widely based on a number of factors including business cycle, macroeconomic environment, fundamentals, valuations, and sentiment. Following a disciplined process outlined in the methodology guide, ETF Action has created a proprietary process to track these factors in an attempt to identify sectors and industries that we believe have an outsized chance to outperform over various time frames.
