Claymore launches micro-cap ETF based on Wilshire Index


Claymore Securities, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Guggenheim Partners, has launched the Wilshire Micro-Cap ETF based on the Wilshire US Micro-Cap Index.

It is the fourth fund in Claymore’s suite of Wilshire-focused ETFs, which also includes the Wilshire 5000 Total Market ETF, Wilshire 4500 Completion ETF and Wilshire US Reit ETF.

"Through our exclusive partnership with Wilshire and our ETF suite, investors now have solutions for both the core and satellite portions of their portfolios that combine the most meaningful features and benefits of ETFs," says Steven A. Baffico, senior managing director and head of US retail distribution for Claymore Securities. "Claymore’s new Wilshire Micro-Cap ETF is tied to an index that offers an unbiased and more complete picture of the micro-cap market."

Prior to today, the Wilshire Micro-Cap ETF’s name was Claymore/Sabrient Stealth ETF and it sought to replicate an index called the Sabrient Stealth Index.

The fund now seeks investment results that correspond generally to the performance, before fees and expenses, of an equity index called the Wilshire US Micro-Cap Index, a rules-based index comprised of approximately 1,597 securities of micro-capitalisation companies, as defined by Wilshire Associates.
