These strategies allow investors the opportunity to profit from a vast cross section of the global economy through equity ownership in companies in various industries and sectors ranging from utilities to technology. As vast as this investment arena is, there are many other avenues available for an investor to tap into other parts of the economy previously unrepresented in the portfolio. These include Fixed Income, Commodities, Currencies, Energy and Real Estate among others.
Exchange-traded funds, or ETFs, have equipped the individual investor with unprecedented access to powerful alternative investment strategies. Hercules ETF expertise provides its clients the ability to buy an entire sector with one fund, profit from commodity prices, and employ leverage and shorting to be effectively accomplished with ETFs in the energy sector. This approach allows the investor to profit from macro driven investment themes without betting on the outcomes of single companies.
