Keys to Our Approach

The Donoghue Forlines Tactical Allocation Fund (The Fund) is designed to be a core, long-term investment, presenting moderate growth potential and risk management across several asset classes. This strategy seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation.

  • Donoghue Forlines believes that diversifying assets globally while actively managing exposure to all three major asset classes: equities, fixed income, and alternatives is critical to both short- and longterm investment success for global strategies.
  • The strategy is unconstrained and treats cash as a tactical asset class and has the ability to raise cash levels as high as 100% as a defensive measure against volatile market downturns.
  • The Fund does not short or use levered ETFs.
