AdvisorShares to launch three Madrona Funds ETFs


AdvisorShares Investments has begun trading in three ETFs managed by Madrona Funds of Everett, Washington. The new ETFs are the AdvisorShares Madrona Forward Domestic ETF FWDD 0.00% , the AdvisorShares Madrona Forward International ETF FWDI 0.00% , and the Madrona Forward Global Bond ETF FWDB 0.00% .

The Madrona Forward Global Bond Fund is the first broadly diversified global multi-sector bond ETF that uses forward-looking yield curve analysis to reallocate across the targeted global bond sectors. The Madrona Forward Domestic and International Funds offer investors a broadly diversified forward-looking allocation strategy based on analyst consensus estimates of the present value of future projected earnings relative to the price of each security.

Noah Hamman (pictured), CEO and Founder of AdvisorShares, says: "Investors are increasing their allocation to investment strategies that rely on fundamental factors. We believe this approach is not passive but instead something that should have the full discretion of a portfolio manager to react to changing markets."

Brian Evans, CPA, and co-Portfolio Manager of FWDD, FWDI and FWDB says: "Broad market asset allocation is a cornerstone to building an equity-based asset allocation plan. There are many methodologies of indices available on the market; however, no method of allocation within an index has applied the same methodology most investors would use when choosing to invest in an individual equity. As CPAs, we at Madrona understand that the most important and widely used valuation measure is the determination of the present value of future expected net profits. We believe that our forward valuation strategy can offer investment advisers and their clients a distinct, value-added approach to broad market investing."
