Global X believes that China warrants a more nuanced investment approach like sector investing. This portfolio provides exposure to China utilizing a segmented and processed approach with a tilt towards the growthier, “new” economy that is being driven by the shift to a consumer led economy. The portfolio is intended to be tilted toward the new, consumer-led economy and away from the more export-oriented sectors. This is a momentum-oriented strategy that takes into consideration the correlation between sectors as well as valuations, and seeks to take advantage of the dynamics within the Chinese market.


Factor driven weighting scheme that incorporates momentum, low correlation between sectors and valuation with an emphasis on the “new”, consumer driven, portion of the Chinese economy. Sectors react differently to risks (e.g., geopolitical tensions with the US) and return drivers (e.g., growing domestic consumption). Combining unlike sectors can yield differentiated outcomes and provide diversification benefits.


Trading decisions in this portfolio are based exclusively upon the quarterly rebalance data provided by Global X pursuant to a licensing agreement.

About Global X

Founded in 2008, Global X Management Company LLC (Global X) is a sponsor of exchange traded funds (ETFs).

Global X is known for its Thematic Growth, Income, and International Access ETFs.

Important Information
  1. Past performance is no guarantee of future results, and all investments, including those in this portfolio, involve the risk of loss, including loss of principal and a reduction in earnings.
  2. Interactive Advisors’ Global X ETF portfolio is made up of whole and/or fractional holdings of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). The portfolio itself is not an ETF or Mutual Fund. Clients choosing to invest in this portfolio directly own the ETF shares making up the portfolio.
  3. Interactive Advisors constructs and manages this portfolio on a discretionary basis using a model ETF portfolio provided under a licensing agreement by Global X Management Company LLC ("Global X").
  4. To invest in this portfolio, Interactive Advisors clients must:
    • Sign an Investment Management Agreement with and become clients of Interactive Advisors;
    • Consent to trading with another Interactive Brokers LLC client who is a liquidity provider in order to be able to buy and sell fractions of stocks, which do not trade on the open market. Clients may revoke this consent at any time but, if they do, they will no longer be able to invest in this portfolio. (Clients can see these fractional trades with the liquidity provider listed and identified on the periodic activity statements they receive from Interactive Brokers LLC); and
    • Obtain the minimum risk score required for each portfolio and acknowledge certain risk disclosures.
  5. Interactive Advisors manages this portfolio by trading its own funds in a separate firm-owned brokerage account and replicating this trading in the accounts of investing clients as follows:
    • Interactive Advisors initially funds and trades a fixed amount of its own funds in a separate brokerage account associated with each portfolio;
    • Interactive Advisors replicates the trading in this brokerage account in the accounts of clients investing in each specific portfolio in order to implement its replication-based investment process; and
    • Based on data received from Global X, Interactive Advisors periodically rebalances these portfolios.
  6. This portfolio is not in any way recommended to Interactive Advisors clients by Global X. Global X does not provide any investment advice or recommendation in relation to this portfolio and is not acting as an investment adviser or fiduciary to Interactive Advisors clients. Global X has built the model portfolio without regard to the individual financial circumstances and objectives of any investor or Interactive Advisors client.
  7. Under the governing agreement, Global X may cease to provide or modify the model portfolio and liquidate any of the underlying ETFs at any time. Global X may also terminate the governing agreement with a 90-day notice. Interactive Advisors will notify all affected clients invested in this portfolio of any such termination as soon as possible to allow them to identify suitable alternative investments on the platform or elsewhere. Those considering investing in this portfolio should bear these limitations in mind when deciding whether to invest in this portfolio, which may become unavailable in the future.
  8. All or most ETFs in this portfolio are Global X ETFs (i.e., ETFs managed by Global X). There may be similar ETFs with higher ratings, lower fees and expenses, substantially better performance, more attractive yield/risk profiles in the market, better in terms of exposure, or otherwise considered preferable to Global X ETFs. Because Global X earns fees for advisory, administrative and other services from Global X ETFs and will generally use a Global X ETF in this portfolio unless there is no Global X ETF consistent with the desired asset allocation, Global X has an incentive to include ETFs with higher costs and fees in this portfolio. Additional information on the Global X ETFs included in this portfolio, including their investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses can be found in the prospectus for each ETF here
  9. For a detailed discussion of the risks associated with investing in this Global X ETF Portfolio, please review this risk disclosure.
  10. Clients may restrict any of the securities traded in their account, but should note that any restrictions they place on their investments could affect the performance of their account leading it to perform differently, worse or better, than (a) Interactive Advisors’ account managing the portfolio or (b) other client accounts invested in the same portfolio.
  11. Quarterly rebalances in this portfolio will result in numerous transactions in many of the stocks held in this portfolio and client accounts investing in this portfolio. Clients will incur transaction costs for any trading in their account (including periodic rebalance trades) such as commissions payable to Interactive Brokers LLC, Interactive Advisors’ affiliated broker-dealer, which is a conflict of interest. Clients could be required to report some or all of these periodic rebalance trades on their tax forms. Clients should consult an accountant or tax attorney on tax matters as Interactive Advisors does not provide tax advice or prepare tax documents for its clients. Interactive Brokers LLC provides certain tools to assist you with your tax filings, but these tools may only be able to support a limited number of trades.
  12. In addition to Interactive Advisors' management fees and Interactive Brokers LLC commissions, clients will also be charged management fees and other expenses (custodian fees, brokerage commissions, and legal and accounting fees) by the ETF issuers.
  13. There is no guarantee or assurance that the methodology used to create the underlying model will result in the portfolio or client investments achieving high or even positive returns. Also, while Interactive Advisors aims to track the model portfolio as closely as possible, it makes no guarantee that it will succeed in doing so, or that it will achieve the same performance for clients as the account managing the portfolio has achieved. Those considering investments in this portfolio should note that there may be similar offerings in the marketplace (i.e., portfolios or investments seeking to track similar model portfolios), which may charge lower management fees.
  14. The performance information displayed on this page is not based on the actual performance of any client accounts. The performance in client accounts may be lower or higher than the Interactive Advisors’ account performance (displayed on this page) based on a variety of factors, such as trading restrictions imposed by the client (resulting in different account holdings), time of initial investment, amount of investment, frequency and size of cash flows in and out of the client account, applicable brokerage commissions, and different corporate actions. Clients investing in this portfolio may view the actual performance of their investment in this portfolio by logging into their Interactive Advisors account and reviewing their customized dashboard.
