Exchange Traded Concepts Files for Approval to Issue Fixed Income and Actively Managed ETFs
Expanding its ETF-in-a-Box platform for investment managers and advisors, Exchange Traded Concepts (ETC) has filed requests for exemptive relief with the Securities & Exchange Commission to issue fixed income and actively managed exchange-traded funds.
“These filings mark our latest commitment to provide investment managers and financial advisors, both in the U.S. and abroad, a single partner to quarterback all the operational and regulatory complexities of running an ETF so they can focus on growing their business and brand.”
In addition to active and fixed income funds, ETC has requested relief to issue domestic and international funds that employ fund-of-funds, 130/30, and balanced strategies.
The filings reflect ETC’s effort to meet marketplace demand for sophisticated investments in an ETF structure by enabling current and prospective partners to launch ETFs across the full spectrum of investment strategies. Under the ETC platform, partners will be able to launch such ETFs in an accelerated, cost-efficient manner under their own label.
“Our plan to broaden the types of funds available on the ETF-in-a-Box platform is a response to the continued innovation demonstrated by investment strategists,” explains Garrett Stevens, CEO of Exchange Traded Concepts. “These filings mark our latest commitment to provide investment managers and financial advisors, both in the U.S. and abroad, a single partner to quarterback all the operational and regulatory complexities of running an ETF so they can focus on growing their business and brand.”
Stevens anticipates launching products on the ETC platform that employ these strategies starting in 2012.
