The ATAC Rotation Funds are designed to be absolute return, tactical strategies. The Funds seek to rotate between risk-on (equities/high yield bonds) or risk-off (Treasuries) based on leading indicators of volatility.

Our Mutual Fund:

The ATAC Rotation Fund (Investor Class: ATACX, Institutional Class, ATCIX) 

  • In offensive mode, ATACX can invest in U.S. large-cap ETFs, U.S. small-cap ETFs, or Emerging Market ETFs.
  • In defensive mode, ATACX can invest in long-duration Treasuries or short duration Treasuries.

Our Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs):

The ATAC Credit Rotation ETF (Ticker: JOJO)

  • In offensive mode, JOJO can invest in high yield/junk bond ETFs.
  • In defensive mode, JOJO can invest in long-duration Treasuries. The indicator that triggers the offensive or defensive position is driven by the behavior of Utilities relative to the broad stock market, a historically leading indicator of market volatility, which is evaluated on a weekly basis for potential rotations in the exchange traded fund.

The ATAC US Rotation ETF (Ticker: RORO)

  • In offensive mode, RORO can invest in U.S. small-cap and large-cap growth ETFs.
  • In defensive mode, RORO can invest in long-duration Treasuries. The indicator is driven by the behavior of Lumber and Gold, a historically leading indicator of market volatility, which is evaluated on a weekly basis for potential rotations in the exchange traded fund.
Why the ATAC Funds?
  • Attempt to provide absolute returns in all investing environments
  • Objective, quantitative process not subject to behavioral biases
  • Seek to provide high liquidity and transparency with low fees
  • Provide diversification to traditional stock and bond portfolios

5 Reasons to Invest in ATAC Funds


01. Add Diversification Benefits to Your Portfolio

ATAC Funds are designed to be highly tactical strategies. As a result, the addition of ATAC funds to an investor’s existing portfolio may provide diversification benefits over time.

02. Ability to Mitigate Risk in Times of Stress

ATAC Funds have the ability to rotate fully into Treasury bond ETFs ahead of periods of equity and high yield bond market stress. Treasury bonds have historically exhibited positive returns on average during volatile markets for risk assets, allowing ATAC Funds to potentially mitigate risk during difficult periods.

3. Ability to Generate Positive Returns in Both Up and Down Market Environments

The ATAC Funds are not dependent on a specific direction of the equity market or the bond market. The mutual fund (ticker: ATACX/ATCIX) and the ETFs (tickers: RORO and JOJO) have the ability to capture upside in favorable environments by rotating fully into offensive ETFs and the ability to generate positive returns in down environments by rotating fully into Treasury ETFs.

4. Systematic and Objective Process

The ATAC Funds use a systematic and objective process to position offensively or defensively. The process is consistent and repeatable, attempting to evaluate conditions which favor higher or lower volatility in risk-on markets. The strategies position defensively in Treasury ETFs when the odds favor rising volatility and offensively when the odds favor falling volatility.
