  • This week Global X Funds filed paperwork with the SEC to market an asset allocation ETF. The Global X Risk Parity ETF tracks an Index that holds a broadly diversified portfolio of equities, bonds, commodities and derivatives, but it will determine those allocations based on risk measures. Risk measurements such as volatility, will be used to underweight riskier assets and overweight risk adverse assets. More information can be found in the filing.
