Large Cap is one of our Limited Edition Kits that uses a long-short approach (like a hedge fund) to capitalize on the divergence between large-cap stocks and small-cap stocks. In low- to no-growth environments, smaller companies tend to underperform larger ones. This Kit rebalances weekly to hold equal weights of a large-cap ETF and an inverse ETF for small caps.

Examples of assets in the Kit

  • Large cap ETF (Russell 1000)

  • Inverse ETF for small caps (inverse Russell 2000)

Example of Kit allocation in a given week
