Investing internationally can add a layer of complexity, especially when corporate governance and political influence are concerns. Kara Marciscano provides a solution for investors seeking to avoid portions of the Chinese market where a high-level government influence may dilute future returns.

In rural Maine at Camp Kotok, I sat with Barry Ritholtz, CIO of Ritholtz Wealth Management, on the deck of Leen’s Lodge discussing the launch of the WisdomTree 90/60 U.S. Balanced Fund and how investors should think about using this new 90/60 strategy within their portfolios.
Following the launch of the WisdomTree 90/60 U.S. Balanced Fund (NTSX), Cliff Asness, co-founder of AQR Capital Management, commented on Twitter that although he had a “22-year head start” from a research perspective, WisdomTree managed to “beat him” in launching this type of levered 60/40 idea in an ETF.
In our research, we have found that overlay strategies can provide meaningful enhancements to traditional 60/40 portfolios both in terms of exposure as well as tax efficiency in the current environment. We believe that NTSX can be a powerful tool for potentially boosting the efficiency of core portfolios.
