Invesco PowerShares launches PowerShares DWA Tactical Sector Rotation Portfolio


Invesco PowerShares Capital Management has launched the PowerShares DWA Tactical Sector Rotation Portfolio (DWTR), based on the Dorsey, Wright & Associates (DWA) Sector 4 Model. DWA is a leading registered investment advisory firm based in Richmond, Virginia.

"The power of this strategy results from its ability to take the DWA Sector 4 Index and package it in the efficient ETF wrapper, which potentially reduces tax burden, transaction costs, and eases portfolio implementation," says Nick Kalivas (pictured), senior equity product strategist at Invesco PowerShares. "Another potential benefit to this momentum strategy is that it may be used in tactical and strategic allocations when combined with other smart beta products or asset classes."
"Invesco PowerShares has been a valued partner to Dorsey Wright for close to a decade," says Tammy DeRosier, President at Dorsey, Wright & Associates. "We are excited to continue our work together, launching this unique sector rotation strategy product that seeks to dynamically adjust monthly to sector trends, as well as prevailing market conditions."
DWA's methodology uses technical analysis to identify market trends which can potentially be used to capitalise on performance differences between sectors. Allocations are then adjusted based on DWA's proprietary relative strength methodology.
