According to CEO Jeff Thompson, “The Donoghue Forlines team believes in our current low interest rate environment, it is more important than ever to be tactical with your treasury exposure.”

Through a combination of Informa Financial Intelligence’s proprietary performance screens, *PSN Top Guns (*free registration to view Top Guns) ranks products in six proprietary categories in over 50 universes. This is a well-respected quarterly ranking and is widely used by institutional asset managers and investors. Informa Financial Intelligence is part of Informa plc, a leading provider of critical decision-making solutions and custom services to financial institutions.

Top Gun firms are awarded a rating ranging from one to six stars, with the number of stars representing continued performance over time.

Donoghue Forlines’ Treasury strategy was named Top Gun 3 rating, meaning the Donoghue Forlines Treasury had one of the top ten returns for the three-year period in their respective universes.

The Donoghue Forlines Treasury portfolio utilizes tactical shifts between long‐term and intermediate-term treasuries to provide an optimized return stream with actively managed risk. Historically, the strategy has shown a negative correlation to the broader equity markets. The portfolio uses credit sensitive tactical signals that identify crossover points of varying exponential moving averages in a group of underlying securities our research team has identified as providing consistent data in relation to shifts in the Treasury market. During negative credit conditions, the portfolio allocates into longer duration Treasury Bond ETFs, and when a more defensive position is warranted as credit conditions improve, the portfolio shifts investments into short to intermediate term Treasury Bond ETFs.

“Congratulations to Donoghue Forlines for being recognized as a PSN Top Gun,” said Ryan Nauman, Market Strategist at Informa Financial Intelligence’s Zephyr. “This highly esteemed designation allows us to recognize success, excellence and performance of leading investment managers each quarter.”
