Data-Driven Asset Allocation

Everyone claims it, but no one actually does it. MarketDesk clients receive all of the underlying data and statistics behind our asset allocation calls. Click below to see samples of our team's off-consensus research. 

Established Investment Process

Our investment approach is centered around evidence-based investing. Instead of basing decisions on near-term trends or “expert” opinions, our team focuses on historical data, leading indicators, and statistical probabilities to guide core asset allocation ratings and tactical idea generation. This quantitative overlay rewards facts, not opinions.

Evidence Based Investing

Portfolio Construction

MarketDesk is an independent firm, ensuring that our interests are 100% aligned with yours — we sell no products and have no AUM fees. The MarketDesk ETF Asset Allocation Models are easy-to-implement solutions, built with active risk management. The tax-efficient models are constructed using low-cost passive ETFs and have a total blended ETF fee of 0.07% to 0.10%. Commentary is provided monthly for the ETF models and quantitative stock model portfolios.
