ETFmatic launches additional investment strategies
Our Dynamic Market Portfolios switch from Defensive to Balanced Mode
Last month we announced the beta launch of a product offering developed together with Eye Performance Technology, led by Mads N. S. Pedersen.
This product offering consists of a set of investment portfolios with systematic risk management and performance creation supported by finance-based behavioral algorithms. These algorithms are designed with the express purpose of actively mitigating against losses.
The portfolios have a base equity allocation, and shift into either a positive (i.e. more equity) or defensive (i.e. less equity) position when triggered by risk-off or risk-on signals respectively.
At launch the portfolios were in a risk-off position, but this week the algorithms signaled a move to the base position, which we implemented across the portfolios participating in the beta.
If you are interested in getting early access, please contact our D2C Support team to try it out directly. For enquiries about this or any other aspect of our B2B2C platform reach out to our Business Development team.

As we continue to grow as a business we’re constantly reviewing our process design as well as our technology choices. This allows us to opportunistically refresh elements of our platform. We do this by giving consideration to both our scaling and performance requirements, as well as to the feedback we’re receiving from partners.
Our most recent effort centered on the post-trade transaction reports. While reviewing where this task fits into our overall trading process, we also took the opportunity to do a technology refresh. The result is a process that is not only more performant from an internal perspective, but more importantly reduces the time it takes until our partners and clients receive their reports by up to 12 hours. We’re very pleased with the results and are looking forward to delivering similar improvements in other processes and parts of our system.
