This ETF offers a way for investors to gain exposure to an entire portfolio through a single ticker, without adhering to strict guidelines that may limit flexibility. GTAA is actively-managed, shifting exposure across a number of asset classes using a rules-based model that emphasizes trend following and capital preservation. Designed to limit downside risk while still delivering meaningful returns, GTAA is a way for all types of investors to gain access to the investment strategy developed by the founders of Cambria (and detailed in the popular book The Ivy League Portfolio. A couple noteworthy items: first, GTAA is a truly global asset allocation ETF, including international bonds, commodities, currencies, and other assets most funds overlook. Second, while the price tag is steep compared to most other ETFs--particularly passive funds that simply seek to replicate an index-- GTAA is still a bargain compared to most mutual funds, and an outright steal next to hedge fund expense structures.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for GTAA on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating.
