We express our views through asset class specific exchange traded funds. The purpose of our process is to actively allocate assets based on an objective, measurable and testable decision-making process. Tactical decision making is driven by data from different indicator clusters including but not limited to economic, fundamental, technical and data  from sentiment indicators. These indicators are used in combination as a decision-making process to tactically allocate capital to different asset classes. That drives our tactical allocation process which is ultimately the way we seek to achieve the portfolio’s stated objectives.
