LifeGoal Investments, a newly formed investment adviser, has entered the ETF arena with the launch of five actively managed multi-asset funds on NYSE Arca.

LifeGoal ETFs

LifeGoal ETFs are tailored to help investors accomplish specific life objectives such as buying a house.

Three of the ETFs are tailored to help investors accomplish specific life objectives such as buying a house, saving for a vacation, or raising children. The remaining two funds are designed as more traditional asset allocation ETFs that are targeted at investors with conservative or aggressive risk tolerances.

Each ETF invests primarily in a mix of equities (developed and emerging markets), fixed income (Treasuries, inflation-protected debt, investment-grade corporate bonds, and high yield corporate bonds), and commodities. Exposure to these asset classes is typically obtained through third-party ETFs.

The ETFs also allocate a small portion of their portfolios (1-2%) to crypto-assets such as bitcoin and ethereum.
