Established Investment Process

Evidence-based investing rewards facts, not opinions. Instead of basing decisions on recent trends or “expert” opinions, our team focuses on historical data, leading indicators, and statistical probabilities to guide core asset allocation ratings and idea generation.

Evidence Based Investing

Portfolio Construction

MarketDesk's independence ensures that our interests are 100% aligned with yours — we sell no products and have no AUM fees or hidden agenda.

The ETF asset allocation models are constructed based on current MarketDesk ratings across U.S. equity, credit, and international markets. The
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.

In addition to ETF models, MarketDesk offers five quantitative
stock model portfolios: Focused U.S. Large Caps, Focused U.S. Small Caps, Focused Dividend, Enhanced Momentum, and Active ESG Opportunities.
