Baby Boomers ETFdb Portfolio Now Available

by on March 4, 2012

The Baby Boomers 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 40 all-ETF model portfolios available at, is designed for investors looking to overweight exposure to the healthcare sector. The investment thesis behind this portfolio may appeal to those who believe that this corner of the market will account for a significant portion of GDP growth, job creation, and stock market appreciation in the coming years.

It’s no secret that there are over 70 million Baby Boomers in the U.S. alone, and demand for products and services from the healthcare industry will likely continue to rise in the foreseeable future. This ETFdb portfolio is geared towards those investors who are bullish on the global economic recovery and wish to favorably position themselves as the healthcare industry grows across developed and emerging markets alike.

The distinguishing feature of this ETFdb portfolio is that it invests exclusively in healthcare equity funds; likewise, the Baby Boomers ETFdb Portfolio  is not intended as a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio since it lacks traditional fixed income exposure. The portfolio is well-diversified across both broad and niche segments of the healthcare sector, such as pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. This portfolio further rounds out exposure by offering access to domestic as well as international companies operating in this corner of the market. The“all equity” composition of this portfolio may be far too risky for investors nearing retirement, although it may attract bullish investors with a stomach for risk and a long-term investment horizon.

The complete Baby Boomers ETFdb Portfolio is available to ETFdb Pro members or with a free 7-day trial to ETFdb Pro. Also check out our new Greedy When Others Are Fearful ETFdb Portfolio, as well as our GLD-Free Gold Bug ETFdb Portfolio.

Also included with the ETFdb Pro subscription are more than 40 all-ETF model portfolios, including both retirement-focused and more tactical themed strategies. [To see all that is included, a free sample of the Emerging & Frontier Markets ETFdb Portfolio  is available to all ETFdb readers]
