U.S. Equities Tactical Asset Allocation Strategy

Description: The Marvin & Palmer U.S. Equity Tactical Asset Allocation strategy is implemented for investors on a separate account basis. The portfolio is split between U.S.-listed equities and cash depending on the manager’s market view. The strategy is employed relative to a benchmark (60% S&P 500 / 40% cash) and, generally, can range from 20% invested to 80% invested.
