Cambria ETF Trust Launches Global Momentum ETF


The Cambria ETF Trust has launched the Cambria Global Momentum ETF (GMOM), which uses a quantitative approach to actively manage a diversified portfolio of world asset classes. 

The fund is based on the insight that sorting assets based on trailing measures of momentum and trend has historically led to outperformance.
GMOM is listed on the NYSE Arca exchange and is comprised of 17 holdings which represent the top 33 per cent of a universe of approximately 50 ETFs. The holdings are selected on measures of trailing momentum and trend. By sorting through a basket of domestic and foreign stocks, bonds, real estate, commodities and currencies, the strategy targets aggressive returns while still managing risk and volatility. 
In traditional long-only strategies, investors are at risk of exposure to long bear markets. In times of increased volatility and bear cycles, GMOM shifts investors into potentially less volatile assets like cash and bonds when the high momentum ETFs are trading below their long-term trend metrics.
Eric Richardson, Cambria's chief executive officer, says: "GMOM's foundation is based on comprehensive research and a carefully crafted approach of management that capitalises on Meb Faber's white paper, A Quantitative Approach to Tactical Asset Allocation. The white paper and the subsequent book The Ivy Portfolio: How to Invest Like the Top Endowments and Avoid Bear Markets show that sorting assets based on trailing measures of momentum and trend has led to outperformance. The new fund fits in well with the suite of innovative strategic-beta ETFs that Cambria has already launched."
