Donoghue Forlines Yield Enhanced Real Asset ETF (DFRA)
The Donoghue Forlines Yield Enhanced Real Asset ETF (DFRA) is an Indexed ETF that aims for consistent returns for investors seeking strategic allocation outside traditional investments in portfolio construction.
Fund Investment Objective
The Donoghue Forlines Yield Enhanced Real Asset ETF seeks to provide investment results that closely correspond, before fees and expenses, to the performance of the FCF Yield Enhanced Real Asset Index.
Investors are currently challenged with the threat of persistent inflationary pressure and traditional asset classes are not cheap. Large Cap stocks valuations are elevated, credit spreads are tight, and interest rates are historically low. Given this environment, we believe real assets have become a core allocation to complement traditional investments providing:
  • Diversification*:

    • Exposure to "real assets" which we believe have better quality characteristics, and provide an alternative to traditional equities and fixed income
  • A hedge to inflation:

    • Seeks to provide better risk-adjusted return than broad market equities in periods of positive inflation surprises
  • Enhanced quality income:

    • Seeks to generate a higher dividend yield than broad market equities and the market-cap weighted real asset equities universe, with the potential of continuous dividend payments over the long term
  • Alpha generation:

    • Applies proprietary Free Cash Flow Quality Factor Model to seek alpha generation over a market-cap-weighted real asset equity universe

Expense Ratio: 0.69%. The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance current to the most recent month-end can be obtained by calling (toll free 800-617-0004). Short term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund's future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns.
