Astor launches actively managed ETF mutual fund

RELATED TOPICS​

Astor Asset Management has launched its first actively managed ETF mutual fund, the Astor Long/Short ETF Fund.

Astor Asset Management is known for its Long/Short Balanced ETF Program. It is now applying its macroeconomic-based approach to the new fund.

“In our opinion, our new mutual fund allows active management to be part of any investment portfolio,” says Robert Stein (pictured), chief executive of Astor Financial. “By offering a mutual fund we have made our services more accessible to those interested in a more active approach to money management. We believe that the past few years have proven that new techniques are needed to further diversify and reduce the risk of one’s investments.”

Astor uses a proactive philosophy of identifying the economic cycle, implementing investment and allocation decisions using exchange-traded funds.

The goal of the Astor Long/Short ETF Fund is to succeed in any type of market and economic environment. The fund uses long equity ETF positioning in diversified non-correlating market averages. During economic contractions, the fund will use defensive positioning, which can range from overweighting cash and fixed income to using ETFs with inverse exposure to broad market averages. However, short selling of securities is not a part of the investment strategy.
