ETF Spotlight: August 2012

Published on by on August 1, 2012

Each month, we highlight an ETF flying under the radar of most investors that offers exposure to a unique asset class or investment strategy. This month, we take a closer look at a new actively-managed ETF that looks to outperform broad equity indexes through macroeconomic analysis and a proprietary security selection process. The Global Alpha & Beta ETF (RRGR) offers multi-asset exposure and is run by seasoned money manager and well-known financial blogger Roger Nusbaum.

The global economic backdrop remains plagued with uncertainties as seemingly never-ending Euro zone debt drama coupled with a sluggish recovery at home continue to weigh down on investors’ confidence. As such, the search for positive, uncorrelated sources of return is still a major challenge that seasoned veterans and novice investors alike are faced with. The new actively-managed offering from AdvisorShares may present itself as an attractive tool for those looking to beef up returns while also tapping into the fund’s unique risk management and global economic analysis techniques.
