Dynamic Allocation Fund

Fund Strategy

Astor’s Dynamic Allocation Fund seeks to adjust a portfolio allocation of multiple asset classes throughout economic cycles by utilizing macroeconomic analysis to determine portfolio risk targets. A proprietary model built around the Astor Economic Index® translates macroeconomic data into a quantifiable measure of the overall economic condition and trend. The direction and magnitude of this measure provides a guideline for an appropriate level of portfolio beta in the current environment. In order to achieve the desired beta level, the Fund seeks to invest in an optimal mix of asset classes. When trends are stable or rising, the Fund attempts to allocate to risk assets with favorable forecasts for price appreciation such as equities. When conditions weaken, the Fund seeks to reduce equity exposure and allocate to defensive positions such as cash, fixed income, and inverse equity. The Fund uses exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) for portfolio construction.
