AdvisorShares launches Pring Turner Business Cycle ETF
AdvisorShares, a sponsor of actively managed exchange-traded funds, is to launch the Pring Turner Business Cycle ETF (DBIZ) for trading on 19 December.
DBIZ is sub-advised by Pring Turner Capital Group, a California-based investment adviser.
The investment objective of DBIZ seeks long term-growth and capital appreciation across all economic and market cycles though a disciplined decision-making process that employs fundamental, technical and business cycle analysis.
The portfolio manager organises the business cycle into "Six-Stages" that determine how DBIZ proactively allocates its investment capital among multiple asset classes including stocks, bonds, inflation-sensitive securities and cash. As economic and market landscapes shift, DBIZ adapts and identifies market sectors and individual securities that have historically outperformed each specific business cycle stage, seeking to optimise returns while minimising portfolio risk.
"We are very pleased to launch DBIZ, a strategy derived from Martin Pring's renowned investment research on business cycles and financial market trends," says Noah Hamman (pictured), chief executive of AdvisorShares. "All chartered market technicians (CMT) can attest to Martin's depth of knowledge because his book ‘Technical Analysis Explained’ is required reading for the professional CMT designation. We believe investors now have the accessibility to a unique and proprietary dynamic asset allocation strategy with the benefits of an actively managed ETF delivered by an experienced investment management team."
"Through my many years of providing technical analysis and research to the international investment community, I have recognised that it is imperative as ever for investors to be prepared for both difficult and favourable conditions," says Martin J Pring, chairman and investment strategist of Pring Turner. "We believe DBIZ employs a disciplined strategy that adapts well to cyclical shifts and can build wealth consistently while lessening portfolio risk for the current environment."
