Sectors can be an efficient tool to help advisors
get a leg up on a changing market. In this upcoming webcast, gain
insight on navigating sector investing in the late business cycle
and how to best diversify an investment portfolio.
On the upcoming webcast, How Sectors Can Help with a
Changing Market, Matthew Bartolini, Head of SPDR Americas
Research, State Street Global Advisors; Robert Forsyth, III, Head
of SPDR Americas Client Enablement Group, State Street Global
Advisors; and Colin Ireland, Head of SPDR Americas Institutional
& Home Office Strategy, State Street Global Advisors, will
explore sector views for the quarter.
Investors who are interested in taking a sector
approach to investing in the markets have a number of
sector-specific ETF options to choose from, including:
State Street Global Advisors also recently
launched a actively-managed, sector rotation SPDR ETF, the SPDR SSGA US Sector Rotation ETF (XLSR) .
The ETF features tactical allocation strategies
and are managed by the firmâs Investment Solutions Group (ISG). ISG
is comprised of more than 75 strategists, analysts and portfolio
managers overseeing more than $266 billion in assets for investors
including the worldâs leading central banks, sovereign wealth funds
and pension funds.
The SPDR SSGA US Sector Rotation ETF seeks to
provide capital appreciation by overweighting or underweighting
S&P 500 Sector ETFs based on ISGâs sector return forecasts and
research, which includes a proprietary, quantitative sector
selection model. Itâs a tried-and-true strategy that has allowed
State Street Global Advisors to thrive and differentiate themselves
in the ETF space.
For XLSR, ISG uses the model results derived and
applies qualitative judgment to construct a portfolio of sector
ETFs that seeks to maximize returns while meeting risk targets.
XLSR gives investors the opportunity to utilize a much-needed
sector rotation strategy to their core portfolio, especially given
the volatility seen during the fourth quarter of 2018.
