WBI Shares marks first anniversary of ‘true active’ alternative ETFs


WBI Shares is marking the the first anniversary of the launch of the firm’s 10 “true active” alternative exchange traded funds. The ETFs eclipsed USD1 billion dollars on the first trading day. 

Now with over USD1.5 billion in assets through 7/31/15, WBI Shares ranks No6 in active ETF assets having garnered 7.44 per cent market share.

WBI’s alternative ETFs are unconstrained and, therefore, do not seek to replicate any index. Each fund’s priority is to protect capital by limiting losses in down market cycles. WBI’s quantitative management process actively manages risk to capital by raising cash as risk increases or becoming more fully invested to seek return as risk abates. WBI Shares’ risk-managed ETFs offer advisors eight funds in four styles and two cap sizes, as well as two blended income portfolios.

WBI’s family of ETFs are:
WBI SMID Tactical Growth Shares
WBI SMID Tactical Value Shares
WBI SMID Tactical Yield Shares
WBI SMID Tactical Select Shares
WBI Large Cap Tactical Growth Shares
WBI Large Cap Tactical Value Shares
WBI Large Cap Tactical Yield Shares
WBI Large Cap Tactical Select Shares
WBI Tactical High Income Shares
