Kitchen Sink ETFdb Portfolio Now Available

by on November 26, 2011

The Kitchen Sink ETFdb Portfolio is now available to ETFdb Pro members with a free 7-day trial of the Pro subscription. This new portfolio, one of more than 30 all-ETF model portfolios available at, is designed for investors looking to go beyond “traditional” asset classes and tap into corners of the investable universe that many underweight or overlook entirely.

With just six tickers, the Kitchen Sink ETFdb Portfolio offers well-rounded exposure to thousands of individual securities spread out across a variety of asset classes. The distinguishing feature of this portfolio is that it goes well beyond traditional domestic and international equity ETFs. The Kitchen Sink ETFdb Portfolio offers investors access to virtually every segment of the global bond market, including several “alternative” holdings that employ quantitative, hedge-fund like investment strategies. Because the Kitchen Sink ETFdb Portfolio spreads its assets across all corners of the investable universe, the potential for uncorrelated returns amongst the different holdings helps to enhance risk-adjusted returns over the long haul, as volatility in one asset class may be offset by stellar gains in another.

Investors seeking to position themselves for a pick up in the global economic recovery may be interested in the Kitchen Sink ETFdb Portfolio’s well-diversified, multi-asset investment approach. This portfolio may be excessively risky for retired investors with very strict current income needs, but may appeal to risk-tolerant investors with a long-term investment horizon and a bullish outlook on the global economy.
