The Pacer WealthShield ETF is an exchange traded fund that seeks to track the total return performance, before fees and expenses, of the Pacer WealthShield Index.

WealthShield Strategy

  • Evaluates the market for risk
  • Uses rules to determine whether to invest in equity sectors or fixed income.
  • Reevaluates regularly to ensure investments are still appropriate for market conditions.

Strategy Overview

An objective, rules-based strategy that evaluates the strength of the high-yield corporate bond market relative to U.S. Treasury bonds and the momentum of U.S. equity sectors and long-term U.S. Treasury bonds.

The fund is evaluated monthly. Any change will become effective on the first business day of the next month. If the fund remains in the risk on position for consecutive months, it will only reselect sectors at quarter end, but will evaluate each sector against its EMA each month.
(1)Determine if credit market spreads are tightening or widening by comparing the ratio of the S&P U.S. High Yield Corporate Bond Index and the S&P U.S. Treasury Bond 7-10 Year Index to their 5-month exponential moving average (EMA).
(2)Interest rates are evaluated by comparing the S&P U.S. Treasury Bond 20+ Year Total Return Index to its 7-month EMA.
(3)Exposure to these sectors is through each S&P 500 Total Return Index. Exposure to the biotechnology and internet sectors are through S&P Biotechnology Select Industry Total Return Index and Dow Jones Internet Composite Index, respectively.
