Investment Process:  The ETFG® Quant Model

The ETFG Quant model assigns a daily ranking to all relevant products using proprietary algorithms and employing dozens of industry metrics to gauge how likely an ETF will outperform the market in the foreseeable future. The selection pool includes all U.S. Listed, Equity Exchange-Traded-Funds and excludes all levered and inverse funds.  The ETFG Quant model has four primary drivers: Behavioral, Fundamental, Global Themes, Quality

I.  Behavioral

Technical– We look at a broad spectrum of technical indicators and each factor is evaluated on a short, intermediate and long-term basis

Sentiment– This uses market based data to quantify how investors view or feel about the market. Each factor is measured and then weighted to get a single ranking value.

II.  Fundamental
The fundamental score consists of 4 primary factors. We are able to aggregate these ratios for the underlying equity holdings of the ETF and roll those up to generate the ETF level data point. These weighted data points are then scored and ranked based on short and long term views and include the following:

III.  Global Themes
This is a qualitative rank that ETFG assigns to sectors and a number of countries based on a general “Global Macro” view. This ranking allows ETFG to over/under weight specific areas based on a few global themes that ETFG views as having significant long-term impact on the markets.The Global Macro view includes:

IV.  Quality
