    Investment Overview
    The Dorsey Wright & Associates (DWA) model uses technical analysis to allocate among four market segments: U.S. and International Equities, Fixed Income and Alternative Assets.
    Multiple Rotation Strategy Exposure
    The four market segments are managed through the use of five underlying rotation strategies. The goal of each rotation strategy is to systematically identify and provide exposure to leading strategy components on an ongoing basis.

    Adaptive to Changing Market Conditions
    The Fund seeks to moderately overweight market segments, rotation strategies, and ETFs exhibiting positive relative strength and underweight market segments, rotation strategies, and ETFs exhibiting negative relative strength. In essence, TAA works by reallocating at different times in response to the changing patterns of returns available in the markets. Below is a description of each rotation strategy, including minimum and maximum exposures and targeted number of ETF and equity holdings:

    Strategy Description Min Max
    Sector Rotation Seeks to provide sector exposure through individual equities, equally weighted across the top 20% of sub-industries. 7.5% 47.5%
    Style Rotation Seeks to provide exposure to leading U.S. styles (such as size, value and growth). 7.5% 47.5%
    International Rotation Seeks to provide exposure to leading international countries. 10% 40%
    Fixed Income Rotation Seeks to provide exposure to leading fixed income assets. 25% 55%
    Alternative Rotation Seeks to provide exposure to instruments historically non-correlated to equity or fixed income investments. 10% 50%
