Direxion, a leading provider of tradeable and thematic ETFs, today announced the launch of the Direxion HCM Tactical Enhanced US ETF (HCMT). HCMT utilizes a proprietary, quantitative investment model to attempt to minimize loss and maximize gains across all market conditions. HCMT seeks to provide enhanced returns across multiple market cycles that are broadly correlated to the US equity markets.
We believe tactical management is a powerful, straightforward solution to navigating market volatility, said Howard Capital Management CEO and Portfolio Manager, Vance Howard. Our disciplined, rules-based approach takes the emotion out of investing and allows us to be strategic and tactical with equity markets that do not think or feel.
The Direxion HCM Tactical Enhanced US ETF strives to outperform the major US equity indices during market upswings by utilizing derivatives, while seeking to minimize losses through investments in cash, or cash equivalents, during downward market trends. The tactical nature of the strategy allows HCMT to provide enhanced equity exposure during periods of market uptrends, resulting in the potential for higher risk/reward. The strategy is an aggressive, yet disciplined approach to equity investing.
Direxions expertise in providing trading tools for tactical money managers proved a natural fit for collaboration, as Howard Capital Management utilizes leveraged products within their strategies in their attempt to generate alpha, said Direxion Managing Director and Head of Sales and Alternatives, Edward Egilinsky.
