The Leaders in Pactive® Management

As a global macro multi-asset manager leveraging ETFs to express our views, we rely on "X-raying ETFs" to view total portfolio risk and exposures. This process allows the Investment Committee to see beneath the surface of the holdings, ensuring there are no unforeseen risks.

RBA's Unique Investing Approach

RBA’s disciplined top-down investment approach seeks to identify investment opportunities that are often unrecognized or ignored as investors tend to focus too much on yesterday’s winners.

Top–Down Approach

We conduct top-down, macroeconomic research utilizing an extensive array of indicators to assess corporate profits, liquidity, and investor sentiment/valuation. We believe the markets are driven by profit cycles, not economic cycles.

Pactive® Investing

Pactive® investing is the active management of passive investments to drive alpha from size, style, region, sector, and other factors. RBA “X-rays” ETFs, looking at the underlying holdings of each ETF, resulting in a deeper assessment of macro exposures.

Global, Go-Anywhere Portfolios

Our portfolios are global, "go-anywhere" - we can go anywhere, but don't have to be everywhere. Our strategies emphasize and de-emphasize global market segments at different times, and will avoid assets that are unfavorable.
