Sector Rotation with Augment Capital

Sonam Srivastava | April 4, 2021


Investing in the top performing sectors for the next stage of the economic cycle


Strategy


Sector rotation is an investment strategy where one moves money invested in stocks from one industry to another as we anticipate the next stage of the economic cycle.

The economy moves in reasonably predictable cycles and there is a specific set of sectors that dominate a given market cycle. While cyclical stocks do well when the economy is growing, the defensive stocks outperform in riskier markets.


With the sector rotation strategy we aim to take advantage of the cyclical nature of sector outperformance and allocate to most suitable sector for the given phase of the business cycle.
