Pacer ETFs Enhances Flagship Trendpilot Series with Addition of the Extreme Valuation Trigger

Pacer ETFs

MALVERN, PA — Pacer ETFs (“Pacer”), an ETF provider that offers passive, rules-based strategies, announces that Index Design Group (“IDG”), the index provider for its flagship fund family The Pacer Trendpilot Series, has added an “Extreme Valuation Trigger” enhancement to the strategy.

The Extreme Valuation Trigger is a methodology improvement that applies to all Pacer Trendpilot ETFs except the Pacer Trendpilot US Bond ETF (PTBD). When the respective index of a Trendpilot ETF is trading at or more than 20% above or 20% below its 200-day simple moving average (SMA), the ETF will rotate into a 50/50 exposure between its equity index and 3-month U.S. Treasury Bills.

The Pacer Advisors team, the investment adviser for the funds, has studied this addition to the rules-based methodology and believe it to be a natural evolution of the fund families’ risk mitigation strategy, especially given the extreme volatility global markets have experienced this year.

The methodology enhancement will be applied to the following funds effective on October 15, 2020:

  • Pacer Trendpilot® US Large Cap ETF (PTLC)
  • Pacer Trendpilot® US Mid Cap ETF (PTMC)
  • Pacer Trendpilot® 100 ETF (PTNQ)
  • Pacer Trendpilot® European Index ETF (PTEU)
  • Pacer Trendpilot® International ETF (PTIN)

In addition, IDG has enhanced the Pacer Trendpilot Fund of Funds Index by including the Pacer Trendpilot US Bond Index. This will be reflected in the corresponding ETF, the Pacer Trendpilot Fund of Funds ETF (TRND). The Index will now be equal-weighted between the:

  • Pacer Trendpilot® US Large Cap ETF (PTLC)
  • Pacer Trendpilot® US Mid Cap ETF (PTMC)
  • Pacer Trendpilot® 100 ETF (PTNQ)
  • Pacer Trendpilot® International ETF (PTIN)
