TrimTabs TTAC ETF passes USD100m in AUM


The TrimTabs All Cap US Free-Cash-Flow ETF (TTAC) has passed USD100 million in assets under management. As of August 8 2018, TTAC’s assets totalled USD105.1 million.

TTAC, which began the year with USD38 million in assets, is an actively managed ETF that focuses on generating long-term returns in excess of those of the Russell 3000 index. The Fund is built around TrimTabs’ expertise in selecting companies that have generated strong free cash flow growth, improving balance sheets and reducing their share count.
Since going live on 27 September, 2016, TTAC has returned 49.78 per cent (cumulative NAV, through 8 August 2018). Over that same timeframe, its benchmark Russell 3000 has returned 37.40 per cent.
TTAC 1-Year returns were 21.25 per cent (NAV) and 20.77 per cent (Market Price) as of June 30th, 2018 compared to the Russell 3000 gain of 14.78 per cent. TTAC Annualised Since Inception returns were 22.79 per cent (NAV) and 22.91 per cent (Market Price) as of June 30th 2018, compared to the Russell 3000 gain of 16.54 per cent. The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance current to the most recent month-end can be obtained by calling (toll free 800-617-0004). Expense ratio: 0.59 per cent
“Crossing the USD100 million mark is an exciting moment for our firm, our investors and for the Fund,” says Janet Johnston, co-portfolio manager for TTAC. “We are strong believers in active management, and in the potential investor benefits inherent in the ETF structure, such as liquidity, transparency and lower costs. To see the marketplace react so positively to what we’re doing with TTAC is very gratifying.”
Johnston is joined by Ted Theodore in managing TTAC, and between the two of them they have decades of experience in portfolio management and equity research.
“By focusing on high quality companies with healthy balance sheets, cash on hand to grow their businesses, and share buyback programs funded by free cash flow rather than debt, investors may have the opportunity to add alpha to their core equity portfolio,” says Johnston. “That’s precisely what we set out to do when we constructed TTAC and we’re very pleased with the results. We’re also very excited for what’s to come in the next phase of our growth.”
