GMOM Factset Analytics Insight
GMOM is part of a growing group of funds that base investments on volatility or momentum indicators. Structured as a fund-of-funds, GMOM aims to invest in the top third of a target universe of approximately 50 ETFs based on measures of trailing momentum and trend. When momentum is strong but negative, GMOM can move to bonds and cash. This is a smaller fund and, as might be expected, daily trading volume is light and spreads can be a bit higher than the norm. Block liquidity is a potential weakness here for larger investors, as some of the constituent funds are liquidity-challenged themselves. Holding costs are a concern: even for an actively managed fund, the expense ratio is high.
