New Strategy ETF Example Fund

Perth Tolle approached our firm in 2018 and asked that we let her leverage our low-cost and efficient ETF infrastructure. We partnered on her Freedom 100 ETF launch, which is based on her proprietary Life + Liberty Indexes. The ETF was launched in 2019 and has grown from $5mm to over $400mm in the last few years.

SMA to ETF Example Fund

In 2022, Burney Investment Advisors, a large RIA, transitioned their sector rotation strategy into an ETF to improve client outcomes via increased tax efficiency and lower operational headaches. The transaction involved hundreds of individual accounts, and approximately $130mm in assets were transitioned tax-free into the ETF.

Mutual Fund to ETF Example Fund

Bridgeway Capital Management, a 29-year-old mutual fund firm, decided to partner with our firm to convert several of their mutual funds into ETFs to harness the operational, distribution, and tax efficiency of the ETF structure. BBLU and BSVO transitioned over $1B in assets into the ETF structure via a tax-free conversion.

Hedge Fund to ETF Example Fund

Upholdings, an entrepreneurial hedge fund advisor, approached our firm in 2019 to facilitate the first-ever tax-free conversion of a hedge fund into an ETF. The ETF was launched in late 2020, and the historical track record was preserved. This transaction paved the way for future tax-free hedge fund to ETF conversions.
