etf-news7HTAA, LLC (Hull Tactical Asset Allocation), in conjunction with Exchange Traded Concepts, LLC (ETC), announces the filing of a registration statement and preliminary prospectus with the Securities and Exchange Commission for an active ETF.

HTAA, LLC utilizes advanced algorithms as well as macro and technical indicators to anticipate future market returns. Their strategies are continually stress-tested with over 20 years of historical data and evolved from tactical allocation models and systems developed and traded by Hull Investments, LLC over the last 6 years.

“Proprietary trading firms and hedge funds have been successfully deploying ever more powerful computer modeling and programmed trading capabilities to make money for their own accounts”, says Blair Hull, Chairman of Hull Investments, Founder of Ketchum Trading and the former CEO and Chairman of Hull Trading Co. “We want to completely open this up and radically expand investor access to these advanced models and systems.”

ETC’s application for active exemptive relief was filed over 18 months ago and will apply to all three of ETC’s existing trusts created through partnerships with SEI, US Bancorp Fund Services and Citigroup/Foreside Fund Services, respectively.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Blair and his distinguished team,” says ETC CEO, J. Garrett Stevens. “Their extensive industry experience and uniquely innovative approach to research make this an exciting launch for ETC to be involved with.”

According to Blair Hull, “ETC’s unique service model was a natural fit for HTAA. We look forward to combining HTAA’s legacy of intelligent and disciplined innovation with ETC’s proven track record over the past year to launch the ETF on ETC’s platform.”

HTAA, LLC, a limited liability company, was formed recently in May of 2013 and is a subsidiary of Hull Investments, LLC.   The principal purpose of HTAA, LLC is to serve as advisor to the newly established ETFs. Blair Hull is the founder and Chairman of Hull Investments, LLC and HTAA, LLC.

Blair Hull and his companies are known for using their rare combination of innovation and discipline to anticipate and adapt to market changes to benefit investors. Mr. Hull is listed in Wall Street’s 25 Smartest Players (Worth magazine, 1999) and featured in numerous industry articles that highlight his company’s successful trading systems and strategies.
