Philosophy

Gaining exposure to long-term secular trends through thematic investing may add growth potential and possibly market outperformance over longer time horizons.  However, returns across thematic exposures can diverge widely based on a number of sub-factors including sector exposure, 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 and identify themes that we believe have an outsized chance to outperform over various time frames.
