Babson professor launches ‘entrepreneur ETF’


Babson College Professor Joel Shulman has launched the Entrepreneur 30 Exchange Traded Fund (ETF), which holds a basket of the 30 largest entrepreneur-led publicly-traded companies.

The ETF was launched by Schulman’s investment management firm EntrepreneurShares at the New York Stock Exchange on the first day of Global Entrepreneur Week.
“Over the past 12 years not only has the Entrepreneur Factor been significant, it has been, by far, the most significant factor in helping explain excess returns over the peer benchmark with his research as well as actual performance data,” says Shulman.
Shulman says that his newest Entrepreneur 30 ETF, “employs proprietary research that creates a new Factor utilizing Management attributes.” 
“The Entrepreneur Factor helps explain excess returns over and above other well-known Factors such as Size, Value, Momentum and Industry sectors,” he says.
Shulman believes that investment allocation experts who currently manage broad investment strategies based on value, growth, size, momentum and industry sectors, will soon realise the benefits of this approach and will begin employing strategies and allocation models based on the new Entrepreneur Factor.
EntrepreneurShares currently applies its Entrepreneur Factor across varying investment strategies including market cap, industry sector and country. The money management firm runs three mutual funds, one ETF and many separately managed accounts.
