The flagship, strategy-driven Trendpilot series added the Pacer Trendpilot International ETF (PTIN) and the Pacer Trendpilot Fund of Funds ETF (TRND). The Pacer Cash Cows Index ETF Series added three new funds: the Pacer US Cash Cows Growth ETF (BUL), the Pacer Emerging Markets Cash Cows 100 ETF (ECOW) and the Pacer Cash Cows Fund of Funds ETF (HERD).

Since June of 2018, Pacer ETFs has added 19 total employees. On the sales front, Pacer has expanded to cover the independent financial advisor channel across the country and boasts 48 members on the sales team. In total, Pacer ETFs now has 71 employees with plans to add additional staff this year to fill their new Malvern, PA office to support their aggressive growth outlook.

“We have enjoyed incredible success at Pacer ETFs, we owe a special thanks to the financial advisors, investors and partners who have assisted in our growth.

We are eager to keep our momentum going and have plans to hire in all areas alongside rolling out new funds and developing more partnerships,” says Sean O’Hara, President of Pacer ETFs.
