Victory Capital launches VictoryShares ETF platform


Victory Capital is launching the next generation of its ETF platform, which is branded VictoryShares and will look to build on the firm’s Victory CEMP volatility weighted ETFs, which have grown to approximately USD960 million in AUM.

In addition to its 11 existing ETFs, Victory plans to launch new ETFs that will track indices developed in partnership with Nasdaq.
Victory has filed initial registration statements for the new ETFs with the Securities and Exchange Commission with the expectation that the ETFs will begin to launch in Q2 2017.
“Investors are demanding even greater choice when seeking to diversify beyond traditional active management or to improve upon cap-weighted indexing,” says David Brown, Victory’s chairman and chief executive officer. “We are pleased to partner with Nasdaq to bring innovative solutions to market that will further support our clients in meeting their investment objectives.”
VictoryShares will provide access to a tool kit of ETFs that seek to improve the risk, return and diversification profile of client portfolios. The expanded product line furthers Victory’s commitment to the strategic beta space and will include single- and multi-factor strategies designed to provide a variety of outcomes, including maximum diversification, dividend income, downside mitigation, minimum volatility and targeted factor exposure.
“The VictoryShares platform is designed to provide investors with rules-based solutions that bridge the gap between the active and passive elements of their portfolios,” says Mannik Dhillon, head of investment solutions for Victory. “As investor behaviour continues to evolve away from style box investing into factor- and risk-based investing, VictoryShares will serve as building blocks for next-generation portfolios.”
The names of the existing 11 Victory CEMP ETFs will be changed effective 20 January 2017, to reflect the VictoryShares branding. However, their tickers and CUSIP numbers will not change, and there is no change to the underlying CEMP indexes or corresponding methodologies.
