Stadion launches Market Opportunity Fund

RELATED TOPICS​

Stadion Money Management, a money management firm known for its tactical alternative investment solutions, has launched the Stadion Market Opportunity Fund.

 
The fund was formed through the reorganisation of Broadview Heights, Ohio-based Aviemore Funds’ ETF Market Opportunity Fund, which launched in 2004.
 
The Aviemore Funds’ board of trustees has approved the transfer of assets into the Stadion fund and the reorganisation into the new Stadion fund.
 
Paul M Frank, portfolio manager of the ETF Market Opportunity Fund, joined Stadion as a senior portfolio manager.
 
“The Stadion Market Opportunity Fund was launched in response to advisers’ requests for a fund that employs Stadion’s defensive growth philosophy, but that remains at least partially invested in the market at all time,” says Jud Doherty (pictured), Stadion Money Management’s president. “The former ETF Market Opportunity Fund offered us a viable underpinning with which to launch our new fund, and Paul Frank’s money management smarts to accompany it.”
 
The new fund is fully tactical and is designed to participate in market uptrends, with an offensive position of up to 100 per cent equity ETFs, and mitigate downtrends, with up to 30 per cent non-correlated ETFs. The fund’s mandate allows it to invest in broad market, sector/region and commodity ETFs. In contrast to Stadion’s other ETF-based funds, which can move to fully defensive (all cash) positions, the Market Opportunity Fund will always maintain at least partial market exposure.
