advisorshares(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AdvisorShares Investments, LLC is the first of three funds to have exemptive relief, allowing them to marry the positive features of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) with professional

 money managing.

Historically, ETFs are designed to track an index, like the S&P 500. They are passively managed: when the index makes a trade, the ETF makes the same trade without speculation. Operational efficiency, transparency, liquidity and tax efficiency are some of the numerous advantages to ETFs. AdvisorShares’ exemptive relief enables them to pair these advantages with a professional money manager who actively makes decisions for the fund.

“What makes AdvisorShares so special,” said CEO and Founder Noah Hamman, “is that we package the benefits of professional money management with the benefits of exchange-traded funds to give shareholders a better investment option.”

So far, the package seems to be working: even though AdvisorShares’ first product, the Dent Tactical ETF (NYSE:DENT), has been in the market for only four weeks, it is already the largest and fastest growing actively managed ETF, trading over 1 million shares in the first four days of its launch. ETFs trade in real time and can be bought and sold by individuals.

Harry S. Dent Jr., one of the managers of the DENT Tactical ETF, will be featured in the upcoming winter issue of EQUITIES Magazine. Affiliates, Officers and/or Directors of Equities Magazine own shares of (OTCBB:FNDM). Be sure to sign up for a free one-year subscription to EQUITIES Magazine.
