Our tactical models are generally divided between those that are driven by momentum and those that are driven by fundamentals. Some of these are just models meaning that we use them to guide our portfolios while using our discretion to deviate when we think it is prudent. Others models are implemented exactly as the model dictates. Generally these will be the momentum models while the more discretionary approach is used with the fundamental approaches.
