The Milwaukee Company Launches Two Tactical Asset Allocation ETFs


The Milwaukee Company (TMC), a Wisconsin investment firm, today announced the launch of two systematic asset allocation exchange traded fund-of-funds.

The Brinsmere Fund – Growth ETF (TBFG) and The Brinsmere Fund – Conservative ETF (TBFC) invest globally across multiple asset classes. They began trading on the New York Stock Exchange on January 16, 2024. Both funds utilize analytics developed by TMC, with a goal of generating strong risk-adjusted performance through time relative to comparable, passively managed fund of funds.

The Brinsmere Fund – Growth ETF (TBFG) and its counterpart, The Brinsmere Fund – Conservative ETF (TBFC), are fund-of-funds that invest in low-cost, index-tracking equity and bond ETFs targeting specific market segments. The pair of actively managed ETFs use a combination of two distinctive, rules-based asset allocation strategies run independently.

“The Brinsmere ETFs provide the investing public with access to the same academically sound, rules-based portfolio management strategies that we have successfully used for many years to manage brokerage accounts for our high-net-worth client base,” says Andrew Willms, president and chief executive officer of The Milwaukee Company. “They allow us to utilize these strategies in a tax-advantaged manner, as compared to separately managed accounts.” 

“The Brinsmere Funds seek to reduce risk and enhance performance by adjusting asset allocation based on its risk assessment, as determined by a set of proprietary indicators,” explains Shrey Patel, senior portfolio manager at The Milwaukee Company. “The rules-based investment strategies used by the Brinsmere Funds are founded in the belief that investment strategies directed by academic research and supported by historical evidence produce better long-term results than those that rely heavily on personal judgments and ad-hoc predictions.”

Each ETF charges a management fee of just 35 basis points. The total expense ratio for TBFG is 42 basis points and 41 basis points for TBFC.
