Now that the shopping craze is (partially) over, we can get back to business. And today, I wanted to do a little spotlight on some ETFs that AdvisorShares has in development...
- DBIZ - Pring Turner Dow Jones Business Cycle ETF
- MINC - Newfleet Multi Sector Income ETF
DBIZ was filed with the SEC in April and will be an actively managed fund. According to the filing, then proposed fund will seek long-term total return from capital appreciation and income while protecting the value of the Fund's portfolio during unfavorable market conditions as well as grow the value of the Fund's portfolio in favorable market conditions.
Utilizing its proprietary business cycle research, Pring Turner Capital Group (the "Sub-Advisor") proactively changes the Fund's asset allocation and sector emphasis in seeking to minimize the Fund's portfolio risk and to optimize portfolio returns throughout the business cycle. The Sub-Advisor will invest the Fund's portfolio in securities that provide diversified exposure to the three primary asset classes (i.e., stocks, bonds and commodities) across a wide range of economic sectors.
MINC will also be actively managed and the investment goal is to provide current income consistent with preservation of capital, while limiting fluctuations in net asset value ("NAV") due to changes in interest rates. The proposed fund was filed in June and it is looking to capitalize on opportunities across undervalued areas of the bond markets.
The launch dates have not been set yet for either fund, but I will let you know when they go live. And for more information about either fund or the AdvisorShares current product offerings, be sure to visit their website.
