Global Titans ETFdb Portfolio Now Available

Sat, Sep 17, 11:34 AM ET, by Michael Johnston

The Global Titans ETFdb Portfolio is now available to ETFdb Pro members, offering an option for investors seeking to tilt their assets towards the most competitive and efficient economies in the world. This ETFdb Portfolio, which includes equal allocations to ten different ETPs, was constructed based on a widely followed report released annually by the World Economic Forum. In a detailed report, that organization ranks dozens of economies around the world on “12 Pillars of Competitiveness” that include everything from infrastructure development to quality of health care to availability of primary education. Economic and productivity metrics are also thoroughly examined, including technological readiness, labor market efficiency, fiscal policy, and business sophistication [see the complete 2011-2012 report].

The Global Titans ETFdb Portfolio includes only countries that ranked in the top ten of the WEF report, including allocations to economies in North America, Asia, and Europe. This ETFdb Portfolio is split 70% / 30% between stocks and bonds, with the fixed income allocations balanced across both U.S. and international securities. Though this portfolio is not as broad-based as others that include exposure to all major world economies, it could have appeal to those who believe the factors considered in the WEF report are predictive of long-term economic growth potential.

The complete Global Titans ETFdb Portfolio is available to ETFdb Pro members or with a free 7-day trial to ETFdb Pro.

Also included with the ETFdb Pro subscription are more than 20 other all-ETF model portfolios, including both retirement-focused and more tactical themed strategies. [To see all that is included, a free sample of the Emerging & Frontier Markets ETFdb Portfolio is available to all ETFdb readers]
