© 2018 TrimTabs Asset Management
We believe investors will be rewarded in the long run by searching for, and investing in high quality companies. For us, that translates to a search for companies with strong free cash flow, strong balance sheets, and reduced share count.
The only reason to start a business is to grow cash. Ultimately, it’s not to create earnings per share or revenue growth. It’s to create free cash flow after all expenses.
At TrimTabs, it is our firm belief that investors should be able to access alpha-oriented strategies that aim to outperform the broad market without paying high management fees.
The implementation of our philosophy—in other words, our process— is grounded in our decades of research. Because the investment challenge is so complex and, typically, volatile, this research is based on strict quantitative principles. As we apply our analysis, we utilize a disciplined, rules-based approach. At the day-to-day level, the process allows our team discretion with regard to allocations to industries, sectors, and capitalization segments. Additionally, we monitor portfolio turnover and tax effects. These avenues of discretion also allow us to respond quickly to changing market conditions. We are dedicated to providing investors a steady application of our proven quantitative philosophy. Our goal is to deliver alpha, or outperformance, while minimizing surprises for our clients.
A Letter From Ted Theodore,
I’ve been in the ETF business for a good long while—since their early days 20 years ago—and while there are certainly a good number of ways to put together a portfolio, for my money, free cash flow takes the prize, which is why I'm thrilled to offer our free cash flow fund and strategies to you. We seek to provide affordable investment options to you. Please have a look around—get to know our fund better! You can start by downloading one of our investment cases or whitepapers. And by all means, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions regarding our fund or strategies.
