Through the JAForlines Global Product Suite, W.E. Donoghue & Co., LLC provides investment advisory services to clients of select Broker Dealers, Independent RIAs, and their Registered Representatives. The JAForlines Global Tactical Product Team specializes in constructing actively indexed portfolios using Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs), which are available via Managed Account and Collective Investment Trust.

The JAForlines Global Tactical Product Team believes:

  • That global investing in all asset classes is critical to short and long-term success
  • That "buy and hold" is a discredited form of investment management; volatile investing times require tactical agility
  • That communicating and working with advisors and Registered Reps is a critical component of client retention
  • That our track record provides an exciting alternative to traditional mutual fund investments

We invite you to learn more about our management philosophy and how we support our professional relationships.

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 Efficient investment characteristics that gives the JAForlines Global Product Suite a unique profile. By focusing on all four trends, we hope 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.

We believe our investment approach, track record and customized service are truly changing the game in investment management.
