Why We Say “Get in the G.A.M.E.”
GAME is an acronym that we derived to explain our approach to investing. It is the combination of Global, Active, Macro, and Endowment investment management characteristics that gives JAForlines Global a unique profile. By focusing on all four trends, JAForlines Global hopes to capture upside market potential and minimize downside risk.
The global landscape is constantly evolving and presents investors with a wide range of opportunities to invest abroad. Our portfolios tactically invest across developed and emerging market equities, bonds, and alternatives, as well as cash.
While taking a long-term secular view, we tactically adjust our portfolios in response to changes in shorter-term business and credit cycles. This active management strategy allows us to respond to market conditions by adjusting allocations across asset classes.
Our top-down analysis emphasizes fundamental credit-driven research to identify trends that enable us to take advantage of investment opportunities around the globe.
Our portfolios are constructed using liquid, low-cost ETFs. Our use of ETFs enables us to construct broadly diversified portfolios with only 10 to 15 holdings on average. This keeps trading costs down and makes our strategies highly tax-efficient.
