Our Proprietary ETF Rotation Model

The model portfolio allocates across US Equity, International Equity, Bonds, REITs, and Commodity ETFs. It stays 100% invested at all times and seeks capital appreciation with strong downside protection.

The portfolio uses the tried-and-tested 60/40 allocation between risky assets (equities) and “diversifiers” (bonds, commodities, REITs).

On the first trading day of each month, the algorithm looks at several measures of momentum and volatility, and selects one ETF from each category.
