Global tactical strategyUndervalued assets

Sera Capital Management’s Financial Tales Portfolio is designed for investors, not speculators. This global tactical strategy invests in a mix of Exchange-Traded Products (ETPs), and seeks to potentially outperform inflation by 5% a year over multiple market cycles. We attempt to achieve that goal while taking on about half the risk of the S&P 500.

Portfolio information


Our research uses overlapping neural networks and technical analysis to help us identify emerging asset classes, and ones that we believe have the strongest risk-adjusted return potential. Our neural networks also help us in our attempts to contain the risk of large losses.


We apply a disciplined, rule-based trading methodology to our global investment strategy. We attempt to keep the portfolio invested in what our research suggests are undervalued asset classes while maintaining diversification. We invest in both liquid Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and Exchange Traded Notes (ETNs) and utilize technical signals including long-term moving averages and measures of momentum.

Sell discipline

We typically look at asset class investments in pairs. A buy signal typically triggers a corresponding sell of another asset class. When an asset class becomes a sell without a corresponding buy, we go to cash. At our discretion, we also will sell asset classes that have performed above and beyond our expectations.
