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.

Donoghue Forlines and its experienced team works with advisors to help them meet the challenges they and their clients face in the current environment.
We offer a full suite of proactive strategies to help advisors and their clients de-risk when market circumstances warrant it, which enables the client to stay disciplined to meet their investment objectives.
