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
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.
ETF Asset Allocation Models
Portfolio Target = 2-3% of Annual Risk-Adjusted Outperformance
The ETF asset allocation models are constructed based on current MarketDesk ratings across U.S. equity, credit, and international markets. Core Series is our most straightforward model portfolio series and uses diversified, low-cost equity and fixed income ETFs. The Tactical Series combines MarketDesk's core ratings with targeted tactical tilts to generate additional outperformance and manage risk.
Quantitative Stock Model Portfolios
Portfolio Target = Consistent High-Quality Idea Generation
Turnkey solutions to run customized equity sleeves for clients. The quantitative models are rooted in statistics and use fundamental data and consensus estimates to maximize objectivity in security selection. The models are updated monthly and published with portfolio commentary. Available models include: Dividend, Momentum, ESG, Large Caps, and Small Caps.
