According to a Mellon press release, the funds also aim to increase returns by using a strategy that tactically takes long and short positions in global stock, bond and currency markets.
Ralph Goldsticker, managing director of investment research at Mellon Capital, said in the release the new funds use strategies created for pension funds and other institutional clients.
“[T]hey employ a global tactical asset allocation strategy to opportunistically adjust the exposure to global stock, bond and currency markets. Utilizing this portfolio of diverse strategies including the global tactical asset allocation component, we expect to generate higher rates of return, resulting in higher income at retirement,” said Goldsticker, in the release.
