HTAA to launch active ETF


HTAA, in conjunction with Exchange Traded Concepts (ETC), has filed a registration statement and preliminary prospectus with the Securities and Exchange Commission for an active exchange-traded fund.

HTAA uses advanced algorithms as well as macro and technical indicators to anticipate future market returns. Its 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 over the last six years.
"Proprietary trading firms and hedge funds have been successfully deploying ever more powerful computer modelling 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 chief executive 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.
"We’re thrilled to be partnering with Blair and his distinguished team," says ETC chief executive J Garrett Stevens (pictured). "Their extensive industry experience and uniquely innovative approach to research make this an exciting launch for ETC to be involved with." 
Hull adds: "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."
