Meb is a prolific presence on the internet and is commendably very transparent. He publishes his own personal investment strategy and has also launched 6 other ETFs: http://www.cambriafunds.com/. Their results have been similarly poor.
I would be very cautious in implementing his advice. He reiterates often that his methods capture most of the upside while limiting downside in any market. He certainly has missed the upside. GTAA flatlined while the market doubled. Perhaps he will be vindicated in the next downturn.
I gave 3 stars because it’s not the easiest read. Because it is data driven, it can be a slug to get thorough and stay engaged. The data however is solid and should be read by anyone managing their own portfolio.
