Analyst Report

This ETF is one of the many funds that offers exposure to multiple asset classes through a single ticker. GAL in particular targets a mix of roughly 60% equities and 40% fixed income. As such, this fund will appeal to investors looking to preserve capital, while also generating a meaningful current income without having to stomach excessive portfolio volatility. While using a product like GAL simplifies the portfolio construction process, there are some drawbacks to this approach as well. First and foremost, because risk tolerances and objectives vary from investor to investor, it's unlikely that the one size fits all approach will work perfectly for you. There’s also the issue of expenses; as a fund-of-funds, GAL has multiple layers of fees and more seasoned investors may be capable of constructing a similar portfolio on their own. However, this ETF is actively-managed and boasts one of the cheapest price tags in the Diversified Portfolio ETFdb Category; investors looking for an all-in-one strategy should also consider PERM and IYLD.
