Innovator Capital Management has announced the anticipated upside cap ranges and return profiles for the January series of the Defined Outcome ETFs, including the latest Stacker ETFs, slated to list on 4 January.
The return profiles for the ten ETFs in the January series will span the calendar year from 1 January, 2021 to 31 December 2021, aligning with many advisors’ annual rebalancing and portfolio management activities.
“With seven resets across Innovator’s Buffer ETFs – which provide advisors with buffered exposure to core domestic and international equity markets – and three launches in our new Stacker ETF suite, offering exposure to multiple stock markets on the upside, to a cap, yet only the S&P 500 on the downside, this is Innovator’s biggest month yet,” says Bruce Bond, CEO of Innovator ETFs. “While 2020 has been a year that most of us can’t wait to have in the rearview mirror, it was a huge proving ground for our Defined Outcome ETFs™. Advisors saw the products worked as expected through one of the biggest tests the market could throw at them, helping to give their clients some peace of mind during the most rapid stock bear market drawdown in history. With the growing range of market exposures and investing strategies in our Defined Outcome ETF™ family, we’re honoured that advisors continue to entrust Innovator with more of their clients’ assets and look forward to growing with them in 2021.”
The January series includes the Power Buffer ETFs on the Nasdaq-100 (NJAN), the Russell 2000 (KJAN), MSCI EAFE (IJAN) and MSCI Emerging Markets (EJAN), which will complete their first annual outcome period and reset at the end of the month, as well as the S&P 500 Buffer ETFs – Innovator S&P 500 Buffer ETF – January (BJAN), Innovator S&P 500 Power Buffer ETF – December (PJAN) and Innovator S&P 500 Ultra Buffer ETF – December (UJAN) – which are scheduled to complete their second annual outcome period.
Additionally, on 4 January, Innovator plans to list the second quarterly series of its Stacker ETFs, the world’s first ETFs that seek to offer “stacked” exposure to two or three equity markets (via the price returns of SPY, QQQ, and IWM) to a cap, and downside exposure to the SPY only, over a one year outcome period, on the Cboe. The January Stacker ETFs include the Innovator Triple Stacker ETF – January (TSJA), Innovator Double Stacker ETF – January (DSJA) and Innovator Double Stacker 9 Buffer ETF – January (DBJA).
