Investment Process

The portfolio takes a strategic asset allocation approach toward portfolio management that can be complemented with tactical allocation adjustments as opportunities allow. Specifically, in managing the portfolio, a “top-down” approach is used to identify areas of opportunity and risk and adjust the portfolio’s asset allocation as the market and economic environment changes. The goal is to allocate assets toward areas where risks are low and opportunities are high, and similarly, avoid areas of the market demonstrating high risk and low opportunity. Using a variety of economic, valuation, liquidity, and sentiment data, Manning & Napier’s ETF Portfolio Management Team makes strategic stock/bond asset allocation decisions as well as more specific asset class, sector, region, or country allocation decisions based on assumed risk regimes. Once the desired asset class mix is determined, ETFs are selected based on desired market exposure, structure, and cost of ownership (expense ratios, trading costs, etc.) to achieve the target asset allocation. The result is a globally diversified, actively-allocated multi-asset class portfolio of ETFs.

The Manning & Napier Fi360 ETF - Conservative Growth Composite (Managed ETF Portfolio - Conservative Growth), previously known as the Managed ETF Portfolio – Conservative Growth Composite, is a weighted average of discretionary separately managed accounts managed under the ETF - Conservative Growth strategy. Accounts in this composite must have a market value greater than $100,000 and tenure of at least one month under our management. The ETF - Conservative Growth strategy has a blended investment objective that invests in exchange-traded funds, primarily U.S. equity with some non-U.S. equity, and fixed income exchange-traded funds. The primary investment objective of accounts in this composite is to manage against capital risk by reducing year-to-year volatility, and the secondary objective is capital growth. Equity exposure for accounts in this composite typically ranges from 5% to 35% with situational adjustments within this range at our discretion. Net-of-fee returns are calculated based off of the effective fees of the accounts in the composite. They are after brokerage commissions, reinvested income, and advisory fees, but if applicable, before custodian costs and the fees of the investor’s Personal Financial Advisor. Also, accounts subject to solicitation fees may incur as much as 0.15% in additional expenses. Fees will vary with size and circumstances and these fee differentials would impact returns accordingly. Past performance does not guarantee future results. All returns were earned in USD and are stated here in USD. All data are subject to revision. Performance for periods greater than one year is annualized.
