NEW YORK, April 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Global X Management Company LLC (Global X), the New York-based provider of exchange traded funds (ETFs), today announced that a suite of seven proprietary ETF model portfolios will become available to financial advisors through the Envestnet platform. Envestnet, Inc. (NYSE: ENV) is a leading provider of intelligent systems for wealth management and financial wellness. Envestnet's unified technology enhances advisor productivity and strengthens the wealth management process.
The portfolios, which allocate across numerous Global X and non-Global X ETFs, are designed to achieve either specific outcomes, like growth or income, or to align with certain risk-based investment approaches.
Equity Thematic Disruptors (Growth)
Thematic ETFs tend to transcend classic sector, industry and geographic classifications, resulting in exposures with low overlap and correlations with other growth-orientated strategies. The Global X Equity Thematic Disruptors portfolio provides a structured approach to selecting and weighting thematic ETFs that own stocks that Global X believes are disrupting traditional GICS sectors.
The Global X Equity Income portfolio provides an equity-based allocation designed to balance income needs with total return. In addition, the portfolio seeks to diversify across sectors, unlike many other income strategies.
Core Series: Aggressive, Moderately Aggressive, Moderate, Moderately Conservative and Conservative
Taking a fresh look at standard risk-based portfolio approaches, the Core Series includes Thematic and Factor-based investments alongside more broad equity and fixed income ETFs.1 The five Core Series model portfolios offer clients an asset allocation designed for specific risk profiles. These model portfolios are tilted tactically to potentially benefit from shorter-term shifts across broad asset classes, while also maintaining exposures that Global X believes will outperform over the long run.
1 The thematic equity exposure is only provided in the Moderate - Aggressive risk profiles.
"In working with Envestnet, our aim is to have our model portfolios serve as an aid to financial advisors as they guide their clients through complex markets. Building portfolios using ETFs allows us to create cost-efficient and diversified solutions. We are excited to see how investors engage with these offerings," said Jon Maier, Chief Investment Officer at Global X.
"We are delighted to launch Global X's model portfolios," Estee Jimerson, Managing Director, Head of Asset Manager Network at Envestnet. "As of December 31, 2018, our network services more than 96,000 advisors, more than 10.8 million investor accounts, and over $2.7 trillion in total platform assets."
"From a technology standpoint, we are providing the tools and guidance advisors need to operate an efficient practice and empower their clients. The expansion of our platform to include Global X's model portfolios further demonstrates our central mission—helping financial advisors deliver high-quality, personalized, and holistic wealth management services in the most cost- and tax-efficient way possible," Jimerson continued.
