Investment Objective

The Global Beta Smart Income ETF seeks to track the performance (before fees and expenses) of the Global Beta Smart Income Index. The index is composed of stocks in the S&P 900 index with the highest average 12-month trailing dividend yield over the prior 4 quarters on a diversified basis.


The Global Beta Smart Income ETF tracks the Global Beta Smart Income Index in an effort to provide attractive income. Global Beta Advisor’s (”GBA”) partnered with S&P to provide an initial index universe for GBA to apply it's methodology. GBA believes that S&P is a best-in-class index provider, such that GBA's starting universe is already vetted for criteria such as liquidity and quality. The index is designed to reflect the performance of constituents from the S&P 900 with the highest average 12-month trailing dividend yield over each of the prior 4 quarters, diversified by Global Industry Classification Standard (”GICS”) sector and re-weighted based on revenue. To mitigate concentration risk at the issuer level, GBA caps each individual index constituent at 5% during each quarterly rebalance. Additionally, GBA will monitor the securities to detect any expected dividend cuts. Once a stock announces a dividend cut, it will be immediately removed from the index. GBA's mission is to deliver a strategy that seeks to provide our investors with a strong line of quarterly income potential and to avoid investment hazards that may come with investors chasing yield.

Engineered to Meet Your Investment Objectives

The Global Multi-Asset Allocation Model is comprised of fundamental ETFs and passively managed index funds. Our model has a 10-year track record of enabling investors to achieve global exposures by leveraging our proprietary strategic asset allocation approach and applying valuation metrics to determine where to tilt through the ebbs and flows of changing economic/market cycles.

Our model is predicated on yielding attractive risk-adjusted returns and dynamically investing across a variety of asset classes, all the while charging passive low-cost fees. The low-cost structure is in lieu of expensive active managers and hedge funds who may offer similar exposure at a much higher cost.

The model is available for direct investment via a separately managed account that can be held with the investor’s current custodian or through Interactive Brokers with a minimum account size. For larger account sizes (over 25 million) actual factor portfolios are available.


The annual cost for index ETFs are on average less than many conventional index funds and significantly less than actively managed funds.


The ability to purchase and redeem ETF securities on a regular basis ensures and underlying depth of liquidity. Unlike mutual funds, ETFs can be traded at market prices throughout the trading day.


ETFs invest in all or a representative sample of securities in an index, providing a highly diversified investment. This offers investors scale and access to a wide range of investments which may otherwise not be accessible to an individual investor.
