US Equal-Weights & Sector-Rotation ETFs

US Equal-Weights & Sector-Rotation ETFs
  • Pininvest Analysis

A confrontation between equal weighted funds and sector rotation strategies

The test is hardly conclusive in the current market environment for sector rotation ETFs, a classic approach based on the market cycle, swinging from sector to sector, in a 3-9 month anticipation of economic expansion and contraction

The poor performance of 3 ‘rotation’ funds (out of 4) may well reflect unusually close correlation between sectors under the current market conditions, making trend differentiation by sector an exercise wrought in uncertainty. Obviously, market conditions will change over time and so will the funds performance

Equal weighted ETFs dominate our theme with widely differing profiles, in terms of market capitalization or by factor model – but a more comprehensive asset base always implies a tilt towards securities with smaller market caps
