The Direxion Flight to Safety Strategy ETF aims to deliver a simple, yet robust, approach to portfolio risk mitigation from equity market drawdowns while also providing long-term appreciation potential. By combining long-term U.S. treasury bonds, utility stocks, and gold bullion, the ETF may act as a diversified ballast for portfolios while also acting as a source of uncorrelated returns.
- A strategy that delivers attractive total return potential with defensive equity characteristics
- A way to introduce portfolio risk mitigation that does not require precision in timing and ongoing carry costs
- An ETF with a low correlation to equities and stable volatility can help deliver added diversification to portfolios
The Direxion Flight to Safety Strategy ETF seeks to provide total returns that exceed the total return of the Solactive Flight to Safety Index over a complete market cycle. There is no guarantee that the fund will achieve its stated investment objective.
The Solactive Flight to Safety Index (the "Index") measures the performance of a volatility-weighted basket of gold, U.S. listed large-capitalization utility stocks, and U.S. treasury bonds with remaining maturities of greater than 20 years. The Index rebalances on a quarterly basis such that the weight of each component (U.S. treasury bonds, utility stocks, and gold) will be based on the contribution of the volatility of each component to the overall Index. The least volatile component of the Index, based on each component's trailing 5 year volatility measure, will receive the largest weighting. The gold component will be limited to 22.5% of the Index and its volatility will be based on the volatility of the spot price of gold.

Short-term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund’s future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns.
