The 2013 ETFdb Portfolio is now available to ETFdb Pro members and those with a free 14-day trial of the Pro subscription. This new portfolio, one of more than 50 all-ETF model portfolios available at ETFdb.com, is designed for risk-tolerant investors who wish to construct a well-rounded portfolio that tilts exposure to asset classes that we believe are poised to perform well in 2013. The investment thesis behind the 2013 ETFdb Portfolio may appeal to those who are looking to implement a short-term, tactical strategy that is well positioned to benefit throughout the year.
This ETFdb portfolio is designed for investors who are looking to add exposure to several corners of the market that are favorably positioned to benefit in 2013. All of the ETFs included in this portfolio were selected based on various fundamental factors and their potentials for lucrative returns. Many of the funds in the 2013 ETFdb Portfolio will stand to benefit from a pick up in the global economic recovery, though some have been chosen for defensive measures as economic uncertainty remains a prevalent factor.
The 2013 ETFdb Portfolio is split 60/20/15/5 between stocks, bonds, alternatives and commodities respectively. The equity component is well diversified, including both developed and emerging market exposure spread across a number of sectors. The fixed income component is another distinguishing feature of this portfolio; exposure is tilted towards emerging markets debt and high yield bonds.
The equity component is well diversified internationally, featuring a meaningful allocation to emerging markets through a number of country-specific ETFs. The fixed income component is another distinguishing feature of the 2013 ETFdb Portfolio; unlike traditional portfolios, which have a tendency to overweight U.S. Treasuries, this ETFdb portfolio omits exposure to this asset class entirely, instead focusing on the high yield segment of the bond market. Our commodity component is dedicated to one of the rarest precious metals, while an intriguing product designed to use a market neutral strategy fills in the last chunk of this portfolio, as well as a global real estate ETF.
The complete 2013 ETFdb Portfolio is available to ETFdb Pro members or with a free 14-day trial to ETFdb Pro. Also check out our new 8% Yield ETFdb Portfolio , as well as our Mining Boom ETFdb Portfolio.
