“HS Dent will use a combination of economic insight and relative strength to determine the portfolio composition of the ETF,” the firm said in a press release when the fund first listed.
“HS Dent believes this strategy is appropriate for the current economic situation because it allows the ETF to follow trends as they emerge in what is expected to be a very volatile market over the next several years,” it added. “In addition, the ETF can become ‘defensive,’ rotating to hold very short duration (less than one year) fixed income, if the financial markets begin to deteriorate and the relative strength of potential investments weakens.”
DENT has expenses of 1.65% according to Morningstar, which is relatively high for an ETF.
