Dynamic Funds® Launches Dynamic U.S. Sector Focus Class

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - October 01, 2014) - Dynamic Funds today announced the launch of Dynamic U.S. Sector Focus Class. The fund will be managed by Myles Zyblock, a highly recognized global portfolio strategist with over 18 years of industry experience and who is also the firm's Chief Investment Strategist. The fund uses a rules-based approach to investing in the U.S. equity market. It is an active solution that invests in a focused number of rising sectors of the U.S. equity market while also having the flexibility to protect capital against prolonged downturns. 

"Volatility and market noise can often subject us to our behavioural investment biases. A legitimately active yet disciplined rules based approach, such as the one developed by Mr. Zyblock and his team, can provide an investment solution that helps clients navigate through the ups and downs of the market cycle and, more importantly, stay opportunistically invested for the long-term to meet their financial goals," said Jordy Chilcott, President & CEO, Dynamic Funds. "We believe that Dynamic U.S. Sector Focus Class gives investors an innovative way to gain timely U.S. equity exposure, protect their capital, and diversify their existing equity holdings." 

Dynamic U.S. Sector Focus Class seeks to achieve long-term appreciation by investing primarily in a focused number of U.S. sectors from the S&P 500's GICS sectors through investments in ETFs, or in fixed income securities and cash and cash equivalents. The fund's allocation follows a proprietary methodology that focuses on price momentum, price persistence, and market breadth metrics to systematically select a concentrated set of sectors that the portfolio manager believes to be favourable. The fund may also eliminate its entire equity exposure and become invested in fixed income or cash for downside protection during down markets.
