Government exposure

If you have read The Weekly Beacon regularly, you know we think Congress members are the world’s best traders (Western world). On both sides of the aisle, politicians have consistently beaten the market. Many investors have begun to catch on with many publications reporting on their trades that are disclosed on Senate and House Financial disclosure websites.

Although we follow along, it is hard to read the disclosures of 400+ Members of the House, and 100 Senators. It is very time-consuming and a waste of time. Instead of picking a few politicians to follow and invest exclusively in their holdings, an institution created two ETFs that seek to expose investors to the biggest holdings held by members of Congress. The ETFs (that just launched) will focus on adding new stocks that Members of Congress are buying in the early days of the fund.

We are not recommending readers buy these funds but think it is an interesting idea and something that could be quite successful.

Subversive Capital Advisor LLC launched the two ETFs. The company is a recently launched Registered Investment Advisor
