Key Facts

  • Selection universe limited to equity thematic ETFs as defined by the ETF Action classification system
  • Over/under weight positions driven by transparent, multi-faceted, and repeatable ratings process
  • Fully invested (no cash), does not use leverage or inverse funds

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.
