Hull Tactical Asset Allocation Launches Its First ETF Product

newetf1Hull Tactical Asset Allocation, LLC (“HTAA”), announces the launch of the Hull Tactical US ETF (“HTUS”), an actively managed exchange traded fund (“ETF”) designed by industry veteran Blair Hull. The ETF is designed to deliver hedge fund-type management and trading tactics to a broad investor audience.

“A wide range of investors – from sophisticated retail investors, to independent advisors to endowments and pension funds in the institutional space – should find our product advantageous.”

Working in partnership with Exchange Traded Concepts, LLC, the white-label ETF issuer platform, the team at HTAA believes that the Hull Tactical US ETF will be attractive as the market for institutional-quality equity products continues to grow.

HTUS is constructed to perform under all market conditions, with an investment objective of long-term capital appreciation, guided by the firm’s proprietary, patent-pending, quantitative trading model. The model selects indicators that HTAA believes can best forecast the next six months of return of the S&P 500. It takes long or short positions in ETFs, leveraged ETFs or other securities that seek to track the performance of the S&P 500 based on the model with the remaining assets in the portfolio being held in cash.

“Investing in the S&P 500 can be an uncertain game, but a disciplined and systematic approach can help you to outperform on a risk-adjusted basis,” says Blair Hull, Founder of Hull Tactical Asset Allocation. “Our aim is to help investors avoid another 2008 in their portfolios, with a strategy not available in ETF form until now. We want to provide investors access to hedge fund-like investing. Investors need a strategy to gain lower volatility exposure to the equity market, especially in today’s volatile environment, and we believe HTUS delivers just that.”

Based on trading models that are proprietary to HTAA, HTUS is a new and differentiated product. As an alternative ETF strategy, HTUS is expected to be seen as a complement to an existing portfolio.

“Incorporating alternative strategies can help reduce overall volatility while increasing portfolio diversification – investors and advisors alike tend to name diversification as the top driver of investing in alternative strategies,” explains Steve McCarten, Chief Operating Officer of Hull Tactical Asset Allocation. “A wide range of investors – from sophisticated retail investors, to independent advisors to endowments and pension funds in the institutional space – should find our product advantageous.”
