“International equities have been a long-standing research focus of NorthCoast and with the recent underperformance in international markets over the last few years, we believe now is a great time to offer these solutions to investors.” –Dan Kraninger, NorthCoast President & CEO
Mr. Kraninger continued to state that providing differentiated and institutional-caliber offerings has been the core initiative of NorthCoast for almost thirty years. NorthCoast’s objective is to construct and manage solutions that complement an investor’s existing portfolio and produce risk-adjusted growth in any environment. Since the launch of their original ETF-managed offerings in 2012, NorthCoast has worked diligently to dive even deeper into the international equity landscape by scoring, ranking and selecting ETFs at the individual country level.
“Our research has shown that individual country ETFs reward certain factors and can indicate future performance. Our goal is to capitalize on this research. We’re harnessing the power of these factors through the investment in country specific Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs). ETFs provide investors a liquid, transparent, and low-cost avenue to individual country equities around the world such as Turkey, Chile or Thailand.” – Patrick Jamin, NorthCoast Chief Investment Officer
The factors that Mr. Jamin mentions are part of the collective selection process called ETF Harmony®, the engine of NorthCoast managed-ETF solutions.
The newly added international ETF strategies join a comprehensive set of offerings provided by NorthCoast including U.S. Sector based strategies and the award-winning* Tactical Income strategy. For more information, please consult with a NorthCoast private client advisor.
