AGGRESSIVE STRATEGY (AG-A/esg)
May 31, 2019
The AlphaGlider ESG Global Aggressive Strategy (AG-A/esg) is a broadly diversified1 strategy that incorporates environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors. AG-A/esg utilizes exchange-traded funds (ETFs)2 to achieve exposure across multiple asset classes, industries, and geographic regions. Of the five ESG investment strategies offered by AlphaGlider, AG-A/esg is the most aggressive. AG-A/esg strives to provide strong risk-adjusted returns over a full market cycle to risk-tolerant investors with a long investment horizon. AlphaGlider anticipates equities to make up more than 60% of AG-A/esg, and fixed income to make up less than 40%.
