ETF Application in a Core Satellite Strategy 

ETFs simply and easily provide diversification benefits as they provide cost-effective, instant and liquid exposure to different markets, asset classes and strategies.

 

Investors can adopt a core satellite strategy wherein a portion of the portfolio (the “core”) is exposed to various passive outlets or index trackers e.g. Equity or Fixed Income ETFs; and additional positions (satellites) are added to the portfolio in the form of actively managed investments such as stocks, bonds, factor ETFs, mutual funds.  The combination of this passive, low-cost indexed “core” and the higher-cost actively managed assets produce diversified portfolios with a higher risk/return potential and reduced portfolio volatility.

 

For illustrative purposes, the Equities Market Cap, Sector and Bond ETFs listed on The Nigerian Stock Exchange can be utilized as core components of a portfolio whilst diversification benefits can be derived from the Pension, Halal and Commodity ETFs, vice versa.
