The investing strategy that famously generates higher returns with substantially
reduced risk-presented by the wildly successful investor who invented it
Dual Momentum Investing details the author’s own momentum investing method that combines
U.S. stock, world stock, and aggregate bond indices- a formula proven to dramatically increase
profits while lowering risk.
Antonacci reveals how momentum investors could have achieved long-run returns nearly twice as
high as the stock market over the past 40 years, while avoiding or minimizing bear market losses-and he provides the information and insight investors need to achieve such success going
forward. His methodology is designed to pick up on major changes in relative strength and market
Antonacci first introduced his dual-momentum strategy in a 2011 NAIIM award-winning
research paper, which created a major buzz in the investing world
Dual momentum is a new paradigm that dynamically adjusts to market risk and keeps
investors safe from the vagaries of today's highly volatile markets
Well-known and highly respected in the investing world, the author is the developer of the
Global Balanced Momentum Index, the Risk Parity Momentum Composite, the Dual
Momentum Sector Rotation model, and the Global Equities Momentum model
Antonacci was the 2012 winner of the prestigious Wagner Awards for Advancements in
Active Investment Management given annually by the National Association of Active
"A treasure of well researched momentum-driven investing processes."
