Accuvest GA Partners With First Trust To Launch A New International Strategy Featuring AlphaDEX Country ETFs
Accuvest Global Advisors (“Accuvest”), a leading investment manager of global/international equity strategies, today announced that they will launch a new model strategy that will combine Accuvest’s top-down country selection with First Trust Advisors AlphaDEX® methodology.
The new strategy, branded Accuvest International Opportunities – Featuring AlphaDEX® ETFs, will initially be offered on select UMA platforms. David Garff, President of Accuvest Global Advisors said, “We are thrilled about our new partnership with First Trust. Both of our firms use a quantitative methodology to access country markets, ours from a country level and theirs on a company level. Together, our methodologies will offer investors access to the most attractive companies within the most attractive countries.”
Accuvest has been running their country ranking model over the last 7 years for a global client base as well as both domestic and international investment companies. Their strategies have consistently featured single-country ETFs which has differentiated them from the majority of global managers. Andy Subramanian, Senior Vice President of First Trust said, “It is rare to find a manager like Accuvest that views the world from the top-down. Their methodology and track record for selecting countries makes them an ideal model manager of AlphaDEX® ETFs. This new strategy meets the need for international diversification that is not constrained by traditional market cap indexing.”
