And to keep it simple, there’s no more ‘secret sauce.’ Instead, the funds are driven by experienced asset managers using a consistent, passive approach based on the desired length of exposure for each fund. By using data to focus on quality over quantity fund managers can focus on the end game—and help you do the same for each of your clients.

Billy Beane transformed baseball by changing the way players were picked and winning teams were built by applying a statistical approach where it had never been applied before. The time has come to do the same for ETFs. And while it may not help any of your clients win the World Series, this innovative approach can change the way you help your clients manage risk, grow assets, and improve liquidity, all while generating much needed retirement income. While Billy Beane never won a World Series Championship, his new approach was even more valuable than raising the trophy.
