The Use of Tactical & Dynamic Stategies
DYNAMIC A Dynamic Strategy maintains the ability to revert to a defensive position during certain market environments such as bonds, cash and commodities. Typically a dynamic strategy will be fully invested at all times and vary the investments within the strategy based on the selected market indicators of the individual strategy.
TACTICAL A Tactical Strategy seeks to actively rebalance client assets held in various categories in order to take advantage of moves in the market and/or market sectors. Tactical strategies can be short term or long term in nature, and will generally move in or out of market positions, often times moving into cash or short term government securities during bear market conditions to protect capital. There may be periods of time when a tactical strategy will remain in cash positions for extended periods of time if the strategy indicators dictate.
