The investment seeks to preserve and grow capital from investments in the U.S. and foreign equity, fixed income, commodity and currency markets, independent of market direction.
The fund is considered a "fund of funds" that seeks to achieve its investment objective by primarily investing in other affiliated and unaffiliated exchange-traded funds ("ETFs") that offer diversified exposure, including inverse exposure, to global regions, countries, styles (market capitalization, value, growth, etc.) or sectors, and other exchange-traded products including, but not limited to, exchange-traded notes ("ETNs"), exchange-traded currency trusts, and closed-end funds.
The investment seeks to maximize total return.
Under normal circumstances, the fund will invest at least 40% of its net assets, plus the amount of any borrowing for investment purposes, in issuers organized, located, or doing a substantial amount of business outside the United States, including investments that expose the fund to such issuers. It will invest in issuers, and/or have investments that expose the fund to issuers, organized, located, or doing a substantial amount of business in a minimum of three countries, including the United States.
