Exchange Traded Concepts passes USD2bn in assets


Exchange Traded Concepts (ETC), the private-label ETF advisor, has passed USD2 billion in assets.

The milestone was due in part to the recent launches of the Vident Core US Bond Strategy ETF and the Tiedemann Deep Value ETF, with combined assets totalling over USD350 million in less than two months. The Funds join the list of nine funds launched this year – a total of 16 funds throughout ETC's Multiple Series Trusts platform – and an additional six funds in registration with anticipated launches by the first quarter of 2015. 

ETC launched their first Fund in March of 2012 and the platform reached its first USD1 billion in assets in January of this year.

"The crossing of such an impressive milestone in just over two years we feel is a reflection of a well-functioning platform and solidifies the importance of strong, strategic partnerships," says J Garrett Stevens, CEO of Exchange Traded Concepts. "Together with our expert team of service providers, we are able to greatly reduce the time to market for new ETF sponsors while navigating the operational complexities unique to exchange traded funds."

"The growth of our platform in 2014 was tremendous, expanding from three Multiple Series Trusts to four and now in the process of structuring a fifth," says Stevens. "By broadening the mandate of our platform to offer seasoned managers the unique ability to sponsor an ETF with underlying domestic or international assets has in our opinion further endorsed what we feel is a value-added business model."

ETC's current exemptive relief includes passive, active, fixed income and affiliated index with the ability to launch a broad scope of funds: Equity, Fixed Income, Fund of Funds, Long/Short, 130/30, and Domestic and Foreign ETFs. Innovation efforts broaden in 2015 with the anticipated addition of Commodities as the next opportunity for managers interested in launching their own white-label ETF.
