This ETF is different from traditional ETFs. Traditional ETFs tell the public what assets they hold each day. This ETF will not. This may create additional risks for your investment. For example:

 - You may have to pay more money to trade the ETF’s shares. This ETF will provide less information to traders, who tend to charge more for trades when they have less information.

 - The price you pay to buy ETF shares on an exchange may not match the value of the ETF’s portfolio. The same is true when you sell shares. These price differences may be greater for this ETF compared to other ETFs because it provides less information to traders.

 - These additional risks may be even greater in bad or uncertain market conditions.

 - The ETF will publish on its website each day a “Proxy Portfolio” designed to help trading in shares of the ETF. While the Proxy Portfolio includes some of the ETF’s holdings, it is not the ETF’s actual portfolio.

The differences between this ETF and other ETFs may also have advantages. By keeping certain information about the ETF secret, this ETF may face less risk that other traders can predict or copy its investment strategy. This may improve the ETF’s performance. If other traders are able to copy or predict the ETF’s investment strategy, however, this may hurt the ETF’s performance. For additional information regarding the unique attributes and risks of the ETF, see the Principal Risks section of the prospectus.

A look ahead: First quarter 2024 outlook

A look ahead: First quarter 2024 outlook

A look ahead: 2024 outlook

If we are right that inflation could fall faster than usual, and the U.S. economy manages to muddle through the lagged effect of monetary tightening over the course of 2024, it will have navigated one of the most aggressive U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) tightening cycles in 50 years without falling into recession.

Inflation didn’t spike in recent years because the economy was too strong, fueled by over investment or excess corporate/consumer borrowing. Rather, inflation surged because a global pandemic upended the global economy, provoking both historic fiscal stimulus and a historic supply-chain morass that created deep and sustained shortages of core goods.

Interest-rate markets have started to forecast more aggressive Fed rate cuts in 2024 in response to falling inflation. Between five and six rate cuts are priced into the short end of the yield curve. While we agree with this bullish sentiment, this many rate cuts strikes us as optimistic given current economic data.

If the economy manages a soft landing, the strength of the “Magnificent Seven” companies that led performance in 2023 should widen to the other 493. With earnings growth—which we believe drives markets in the long-run—recently turning positive on a quarterly basis for the first time in a year, that process may have already begun.

Asset allocation views: Current outlook


 

Equity vs. Fixed Income

Whether considering budget battles on Capitol Hill, the sharp disagreement between the markets Equity and the Federal Reserve (Fed), or actual wars in various regions around the world, the cumulative weight of the conflict, and its potential impact on the financial markets, can’t be ignored. Our allocations maintain a small equity overweight and a bias toward adding to that weight, given further weakness.

While it’s not unusual to string back-to-back years of above-average performance together, the feat does not come without challenges.

Despite near-term risks persisting, we suspect the general trend will persist, albeit less aggressively. As such, we continue to maintain a small equity bias.

Equities

Equities

 

U.S. vs. Int’l.

We favor domestic over international in the intermediate-to-long term for a variety of reasons U.S. including peak globalization, a higher degree of innovation domestically, greater demographic issues internationally, structural issues in Europe, and a more favorable climate for businesses (e.g., regulation) domestically.

International markets may provide some safety on a relative basis in the event the largest names in the S&P 500 give back some of their massive 2023 gains.

While we are not calling for international markets to outperform in the near-term, we retain the capacity to add to our international underweighting if that occurs.


 

Market Cap

Our overweighting to small-mid (SMID) is concentrated in mid-caps, while we maintain an overweighting to large-caps.

With the high likelihood of rate cuts this year by the Fed, history suggests that the advantage is skewed in favor of large caps given their higher quality. This was the case even for the soft-landing scenario of 1995.

The prior outperformance of a select group of large cap stocks, combined with lower rates while avoiding a recession (i.e., a soft landing) may provide an environment conducive for SMID caps to make up some ground.

Fixed-income

 

Duration

Long-term interest rates such as the 10-year Treasury were volatile in the quarter, rising sharply on better-than-expected economic data and concerns over growing Treasury bond issuance.

We expect the Fed to start cutting rates around mid-year. The risk to this view is that inflation comes in higher than expectations and prompts the Fed to hold rates high longer or hike again.

We are modestly long duration with roughly neutral positioning across the curve.

We expect rates to be volatile but move lower through 2024 through a combination of lower inflation and slowing economic growth.


 

Credit Quality1

Fixed income credit spreads rallied substantially in the fourth quarter on expectations that the Fed would stop interest rate increases and eventually cut.

Spreads in high-yield and investment-grade corporate bonds entered 2024 below long-term averages.

We expect slowing economic growth and higher defaults, but default rates should remain below prior recessionary peaks given overall solid fundamentals.

Defaults are likely to increase for leveraged loans, where credit quality has deteriorated more.

2024 is likely to deliver positive total returns in both stocks and bonds broadly. We remain mindful that volatility can spike or remain elevated for extended periods as economic or geopolitical uncertainty rises.
