How We Got Here
Donoghue Forlines is a Boston-based tactical investment firm that has specialized in active risk-managed portfolios since 1986. In December 2017, W.E. Donoghue (WEDCO) acquired JAForlines Global (JFG), an investment management company specializing in risk-managed global tactical strategies.
The acquisition resulted in a unique firm in the investment management space and, over the following years together, we have evolved a compelling product lineup by combining fundamental, top-down research strategies along with rules-based disciplines.
