Donoghue Forlines Tactical Income Fund


Fund Goal

The fund’s primary investment objective is total return from income and capital appreciation. It has a secondary objective of capital preservation. We find income opportunities across the three major asset classes – global fixed income, global equities and alternatives. We believe this orientation is critical to both short- and long-term investment success.

Potential Benefits

  • Seeks high current income and preservation of capital during market declines
  • Invests in ETFs across asset classes, primarily  fixed income and to a lesser extent equities  and alternatives
  • Tactically manages risk and opportunity with a longterm global macroeconomic view

There is no guarantee that any investment strategy will achieve its objectives, generate profits or avoid losses.

Portfolio’s 4 Fundamental Principles

Global Allocation

Global diversification across asset classes seeks to reduce portfolio risk and volatility by limiting exposure to individual risk factors

Fundamental Analysis

Forward-looking risk assessment through fundamental analysis seeks to anticipate market events and trends rather than reacting to them

Tactical Management

The Fund seeks to adapt to evolving risks and opportunities, rather than switching quickly between assets

Risk Management

All Donoghue Forlines portfolios have the ability to raise cash or short-term Treasuries to help reduce the risk during volatile market downturns
