Portfolio Strategy

The holdings are weighted to emphasize yield, with 50 percent investment in each of equity and fixed income and a cap of 20 percent for each security. The ETF is rebalanced and reconstituted semi-annually in July and January. In addition, as ZMI is a fund of fund, the management fees charged are reduced by those accrued in the underlying funds.
