The Counterpoint Quantitative Equity Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation.

Key Differentiators

Capital Appreciation

The Fund invests in individual stocks that have exposure to multiple factors and are among the highest-ranking stocks to hold as determined by quantitative models and artificial intelligence to seek outperformance relative to the market.

Dynamic Factor Exposure

The Fund uses a blend of multiple machine learning models. These artificial intelligence models perform stock ranking, and dynamically adjust factor exposures based on changing market conditions.

Quantitative Research-Driven

Counterpoint’s empirical research has provided over 30 variables as inputs to rank stocks, which revolve around themes of value, long-term reversal, momentum, profitability, investor sentiment and price stability.

Innovative Management Team

Counterpoint’s investment team leverages both published academic and proprietary research that resolve around themes which are leveraged throughout Counterpoint’s quantitative approach.



Allocation Strategy

The Counterpoint Quantitative Equity ETF Fund uses multiple machine learning models to select a portfolio.  The process dynamically adjusts exposure to different factors to seek outperformance relative to the market.



Portfolio Characteristics

The Fund uses a blend of multiple quantitative machine learning models and advanced artificial intelligence techniques to most optimally score and select the highest ranked stocks.

There is no guarantee that any investment strategy will achieve its objectives, generate profits or avoid losses.



Current Factor Exposure

The Counterpoint Quantitative Equity ETF seeks to provide exposure to stocks with the highest predicted return, where factor exposures are dynamic depending on factor interaction effects and market conditions. 

The chart below displays the current total factor weighting for CPAI as of the last rebalance. This attribution shows expected factor exposure weighting relative to a broad market portfolio.

Last Rebalance Date: December 28, 2023. The chart displays the factor exposure of the stocks held by the fund as of the last rebalance. Positive and negative factor weightings must sum to 100%, so where a factor may contribute negatively in a given period, the sum of all positive factor attributions may be greater than 100%. Factor attributions below the 0% axis subtract from total excess return estimate, often indicating the model takes negative exposure to certain factors because some other factor has positive expectations that exceed the negative contribution. i.e., Volatility factor usually includes lower volatility stocks when the attribution is positive, and higher volatility stocks when the attribution is negative. Likewise, it would show High quality when positive, low quality when negative. It does not show actual investment returns or performance of the fund. Future performance is unknown.



Dynamic Factor Exposure Over Time

The chart below displays the dynamic nature of total factor weighting for the top 50 stocks determined by the model, rolling over time. This attribution shows expected factor exposure weighting relative to a broad market portfolio.

Time Period: January 1, 1998, to September 1, 2023. The chart displays the factor exposure of the top 50 stocks determined by the model and displays shifts in factor style over time. Positive and negative factor weightings must sum to 100%, so where a factor may contribute negatively in a given period, the sum of all positive factor attributions may be greater than 100%. Factor attributions below the 0% axis subtract from total excess return estimate, often indicating the model takes negative exposure to certain factors because some other factor has positive expectations that exceed the negative contribution. i.e., Volatility factor usually includes lower volatility stocks when the attribution is positive, and higher volatility stocks when the attribution is negative. Likewise, it would show High quality when positive, low quality when negative. It does not show actual investment returns or performance of the fund. Future performance is unknown.

Important Risk Information


Investments in the Counterpoint Quantitative Equity ETF involves risk including possible loss of principal and may not be suitable for all investors. The Fund is new with a limited history of operations. There is no assurance that the Fund’s strategy for allocating assets will achieve its investment objectives. The extent that Authorized Participants (AP) exit the business or are unable to proceed with creation or redemption orders, Fund shares may be more likely to trade at a premium or discount to net asset value and possibly face trading halts or delisting. Issuers of a security and other instruments may not be able to make principal and interest payments when due. Fluctuation in the value of equity securities held by the Fund causes the net asset value of the Fund to fluctuate. You should consider how you investment in Shares will be taxed and consult your own tax professional about the tax consequences of an investment in Shares.

The Fund is structured as an ETF and is subject to risks including, market price variance, trading issues and not being individually redeemable. ETF investments involve advisory and other expenses which will be indirectly paid by the Fund. The Adviser’s judgments about the growth, value or potential appreciation of an investment may prove to be incorrect or fail to have the intended results, which could adversely impact the Fund’s performance and cause it to underperform relative to its benchmark, or not to achieve its investment goal. Like any quantitative analysis, the Adviser’s investment model carries a risk that the model used might be based on one or more incorrect assumptions. Rapidly changing and unforeseen market dynamics could lead to a decrease in the short-term effectiveness of the model and could have an adverse effect on the securities selected for the Fund. No assurance can be given that the Fund will be successful under all or any market conditions.
