Tactical International Equity Portfolios

The QID Tactical International Equity portfolio is a long only, tactically defensive international equity strategy that provides broad-based regional and country exposure.

The U.S. Tactical International portfolios are offered in two versions:

  • Tactical International Equity Portfolio
    When fully invested, the portfolio is constructed with up to five country/regional ETFs. The model will calculate the likelihood of significant loss, for each country or region represented in the portfolio, and deliver an “on” or “off” signal accordingly. The weighting of each country/regional ETF is based on the market cap weight of the world economy (excluding the U.S.).A defensive position will begin to build as each country/regional ETF is sold, and the portfolio will go 100% defensive once all international ETFs have been sold.

The minimum account size is $100,000.
