Investors can easily capture broad market themes and sectors with exchange traded funds to create a broad strategic or tactical investment portfolio.

ETF Trends’ Tom Lydon recently sat down with Robert Michaud, Chief Investment Officer for New Frontier, to talk about how ETFs can fit in short-term tactical investment portfolio or a long-term strategic style.

New Frontier provides ETF managed portfolios that cover 15 different strategies.

“There are really 15 different strategies really made for different types of investors for different risk levels,” Michaud said. “They are designed to be really transparent, so people know what they are going to get.”

As the ETF industry churns out more products, independent managers have more tools at their fingertips.

“What we’re really looking for is, in addition to the nice features of ETFs – the transparency, liquidity and cost – we’re really trying to capture: ‘is it representing the asset class we are interested in,'” Michaud added.
