BEMOAptus Behavioral Momentum ETF
BEMO Fund Description
BEMO holds U.S.-listed equities selected by their momentum characteristics in a risk-on environment, and switches to 7-10 year U.S. Treasury notes in a risk-off environment.
BEMO Factset Analytics Insight
At any point in time, BEMO is either 100% invested in US-listed equities, or 100% invested in 7-10 year US Treasury notes depending on the momentum of broad-based US equity market indexes. In its equity state, BEMO ranks US-listed companies by 26-week total return performance and price relative to the 52-week high. The top 25 securities are selected, with a sector constraint of 30% maximum. Each security is then given an equal weight. If at any given reconstitution date US equity markets show a 10% decrease, the fund switches out its equity exposure for 100% 7-10 year US Treasury notes. The fund will switch back to equities when US equity markets are above its moving average. There are other funds, such as the Pacer Trendpilots, that utilize the risk-on/risk-off strategy, but BEMO differentiates itself by toggling into intermediate Treasurys instead of a cash position (or equivalent). While its expense ratio is high, it is in line with funds with similar structures and targets.
