Tactical Core

The underlying premise of the Good Harbor tactical model is that equity prices are driven by changes in investor risk premiums and that these premiums vary with the global business cycle. By gauging a combination of momentum measures, economic data and yield curve analysis, the model seeks to assess changes in risk premiums in order to participate in equities during rallies and move defensively to bonds when weaker market conditions are anticipated.

Good Harbor Financial's reliance on the strategy and its judgments about the value and potential appreciation of the securities in which the strategy invests may prove to be incorrect. Overall market risk, including volatility, may affect the value of the individual instruments in which the strategy invests. No current or prospective client should assume future performance of any specific investment strategy will be profitable or equal to past performance levels. All investment strategies have the potential for profit or loss.
