NFDAX | NFDIX

Investment Objective

The Newfound Risk Managed U.S. Sectors strategy provides access to U.S. equities within a disciplined risk management framework. The strategy applies a rule-based process to evaluate each U.S. sector ETF individually utilizing Newfound’s proprietary momentum models. Sectors identified as exhibiting negative momentum are removed from the portfolio. The strategy seeks to manage downside risk with the flexibility to shift the portfolio entirely to a short-term U.S. Treasury ETF position in an effort to pursue long-term capital appreciation with an emphasis on capital preservation.

Why Newfound Risk Managed U.S. Sectors?

Provides core equity exposure through sector-based framework (25% max in any sector)

 

  • Fully tactical – can go from 100% equity to 100% cash in an effort to avoid significant drawdowns

     

  • Places a 100% unemotional, momentum-based framework on allocation decisions

     

  • Flexible tool to address key risks, such as capital loss, fear-based under allocation to equities
  • A simple
    objective.

    The strategy seeks to manage downside risk and participate with market growth, providing exposure to U.S. equities through 10 sector ETFs with the ability to shift the portfolio entirely to a short-term U.S. treasury ETF position.

    A consistent
    process.

    Applies a disciplined, rule-based process to evaluate each sector independently utilizing Newfound’s proprietary momentum models. Sectors identified as exhibiting negative momentum are removed from the portfolio.

    A thoughtful
    design.

    If a sector is removed from the portfolio, its capital is re-allocated among the remaining investments.  Sectors are capped at 25%, allowing the portfolio to build a position in a short-term U.S. Treasury ETF when enough sectors exhibit negative trends.

    "By splitting raw model output and the rules that govern portfolio design, we force ourselves to deal with model failure as an eventual certainty, not something to ignore and hope it doesn’t happen."
