Dorsey Wright Indexes

Nasdaq Dorsey Wright was an early adopter of smart beta strategies through its focus on alternative weightings to augment performance via proprietary tactical asset allocation models. Since our first ETF-linked index was launched in 2007, we have expanded our index business into new markets and turned our portfolio and tactical asset allocation models into innovative solutions for investment professionals globally.

The Dorsey Wright Indexes are some of the most well-known smart beta indexes in the world. The Dorsey Wright Technical Leaders Index family selects the highest relative strength companies from within their respective investment universes. In addition, the Focus Five Indexes select the five ETFs from the First Trust Portfolios product line with powerful relative strength characteristics.
