ETFS Capital invests USD4m in ETFLogic

RELATED TOPICS​

ETFS Capital has invested USD4 million in ETFLogic, a New York City-based ETF analytics and data company. This is the first outside fund raising by ETFLogic, which commenced operations in 2018 with just founders’ money.  

The ETFS Capital business was formed out of ETF Securities in 2018 following the successful divesture of its operating ETF businesses in Europe and the US, which delivered proceeds of more than USD600 million. Those proceeds are now being applied to investment opportunities within the ETF eco-sphere, with a particular focus on helping to grow start-ups who bring innovation and new solutions to the sector. With its deep ETF management experience and ability to invest small and large amounts in any company, ETFS Capital is an ideal partner for ETFLogic.
 
Graham Tuckwell, Chairman of ETFS Capital, says that it was his team’s experience running ETF Securities, together with the significant synergies with ETFS Capital’s other portfolio companies, Ultumus and ETF Stream, that led them to invest in ETFLogic.
 
“We know from first-hand experience that data tools are absolutely crucial to successfully trading ETFs. If ETFLogic’s solutions had been available to us at ETF Securities we could have made even better decisions for our clients and saved ourselves days or weeks of work each time,” he says.
 
“ETFs are changing how financial markets operate and invest,” says Emil Tarazi, CEO of ETFLogic. “Every participant in the ETF ecosystem can benefit from what they have to offer.”
 
“ETF assets have grown with a commensurate increase in complexity and we are still in the very early stages of this evolution. Our clients – ETF issuers, advisors, traders and corporations – need analytics and easy-to-use tools to gain an edge in this new ETF-driven world. That is why we are excited to have the backing of ETFS Capital.”
 
“In addition to capital, they provide strategic advice and deep knowledge of the ETF markets. We couldn’t be more eager now to accelerate our roadmap and enable our clients with our best-in-class tools.”
 
The global ETF market currently stands at USD5.5 trillion in assets under management and is expected to grow to USD12 trillion by the end of 2023. With an ever-expanding product universe, ETFs now require an expansive skillset and deeper analytics to understand how to invest. The lack of robust tools and a go-to dedicated ETF platform could lead investors to the wrong decisions when choosing from the thousands of ETFs to add to their portfolio.
 
ETFLogic fills a gap in the ETF analytics market by providing an easy-to-understand and user-friendly online platform packed with interactive visualisations, unique data points and customised reports around trading costs, risk factors and underlying portfolio characteristics.
 
The USD4 million investment will be used to expand ETFLogic’s team, while also building out its product offering in Europe and the US.
