Sabrient Global Balanced Indices

The Sabrient Global Balanced Indices ("the Indices") were developed by Sabrient as a quantitative approach to selecting multiple asset classes using exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The Indices comprise a mixture of approximately 10-20 (or more) ETFs in core asset classes, including Canadian and Global Equity, Emerging Markets Equity, Global Real Estate, Fixed Income, Preferred Shares and Commodities.

The objective of the Indices is to provide an appropriate mix of equity and fixed income exposure for seeking both capital appreciation and income in varying importance, based on the specific index, with the potential for the equity portion to outperform on a risk-adjusted basis the broad market benchmarks.

Sabrient offers two Global Balanced Indices, one concentrating on income, the other on growth.
