All of our sustainable ETF portfolios offer daily liquidity, meaning that investors can buy or sell any day, with no lock-in or penalty
we use a selection of technical trading signals for our ETF selection. Over the last 15 years, we have consistently generated outstanding performance. We have significantly outperformed the benchmark in all but one of our sustainable ETF portfolios:
WHAT are the advantages of our sustainable portfolios
offering much better value than traditional funds, ETFs typically cost investors 0.1% – 0.2% per annum. Using these ETFs, we construct ready-made sustainable portfolios for investors of all types
ETFs are highly liquid, meaning there are high trading volumes and they can be bought and sold even in times of market turbulence. All our portfolios offer 24-hour encashment to investors
ETFs can reduce the overall volatility of your portfolio through diversification. Our sustainable ETF portfolios are all globally diversified amongst the major asset classes (equities, bonds, commodities etc.).
ETFs are completely transparent. Data for their holdings, their performance and their costs are updated daily. This means you can always see exactly what you own in your ETF portfolio

how do we choose the ETFs in our sustainable portfolios?
our investment process ensures we only use the most transparent, liquid and cost-effective ETFs. We only use replication ETFs. We do not use any synthetic, leveraged or inverse ETFs. we exclude all non-compliant investments (oil, heavy polluters, weapons, etc.) and actively include sustainable ETFs (solar, water, gender equality, etc.).
at blufolio, most of the ETFs we deploy in our portfolios have market capitalisations in the USD billions, making them some of the most liquid investments available anywhere. We only use ETFs that have a market capitalisation of at least USD 100 million, and daily US dollar liquidity of at least 10 million
we actively monitor the costs of all the ETFs in our investment universe (numbering over 1000 ETFs currently). All else being equal, we will always choose the lowest-cost ETF, considering the TER (Total Expense Ratio) and bid-offer spread
our investment approach
blufolio’s investment process combines asset selection, based primarily on technical criteria, with quantitative risk management within clearly-defined volatility constraints
we invest according to a range (typically 12-15) of technical trading signals. No investment decision will be executed unless the technicals suggest the timing is correct. We have a core / satellite structure, where each component is actively managed
