Compass EMP launches two ETFs


Victory Capital has launched two new Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) on the Nasdaq Stock Market, both managed by Victory Capital’s investment franchise, Compass Efficient Model Portfolios (Compass EMP). 

Victory Capital recently completed the acquisition of the business of Compass EMP, a strategic beta manager.

The new ETFs are the Compass EMP International 500 Volatility Weighted Index ETF (CIL) and the Compass EMP International High Dividend 100 Volatility Weighted Index ETF (CID), and both track  CEMP Volatility Weighted Indexes. The indexes seek to improve an investor’s ability to outperform traditional indexing strategies through an alternative approach that combines fundamental criteria with broad market volatility weighting of individual securities. 

“The Compass EMP methodology can provide advisors and their clients with a more effective way to achieve broad market exposure than traditional market-cap weighted indexes,” says Stephen Hammers, Chief Investment Officer for Compass EMP. “We are very excited to expand our existing ETF line-up to include two funds that may offer a tax efficient solution for investors seeking broad diversification outside of the US.”
