Pacer ETFs, an award-winning ETF provider that offers passive rules-based strategies, is excited to announce its growth of more than $1 billion in assets under management just as they celebrate their second birthday.
“It’s an exciting time to be at Pacer. We’ve achieved a major milestone, crossing the $1 billion threshold just as we’re turning two years old, and we’ve only just scraped the surface of our potential. We attribute our growth rate, in part, to our unique series of ETFs, the Trendpilot® Series and the Cash Cows IndexSM Series. Our goal is to offer timely solutions to help investors maintain wealth and achieve higher returns over time,” says Sean O’Hara, President of Pacer ETF Distributors. “However, reaching this milestone wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our team and our partners; BATS, Wilshire, NASDAQ, FTSE Russell, and US Bank.”
Since its inception, Pacer ETFs won seven industry awards and have been recognized as one of the fastest growing ETF issuers. To support their impressive growth, Pacer has been focusing on growing their sales force, recently welcoming Phil Eichinger to the management team as a Senior Vice President.
Pacer ETFs currently has two series of ETFs:
The Trendpilot® Series use a trend following strategy designed to participate in the market when it is trending up, maintain some exposure during short-term market declines, and exit the market when it is trending down. Pacer currently has four Trendpilot® ETFs that trade on the Bats Global Market Exchange:
- Pacer Trendpilot®750 ETF (PTLC): Exposure alternates between U.S. large-cap, T-bills and a 50/50 blend based on trend following. Current Exposure: 100% Equity
- Pacer Trendpilot® 450 ETF (PTMC): Exposure alternates between U.S. mid-cap, T-bills and a 50/50 blend based on trend following. Current Exposure: 100% Equity
- Pacer Trendpilot® 100 ETF (PTNQ): Exposure alternates between NASDAQ-100®, T-bills and a 50/50 blend based on trend following. Current Exposure: 100% Equity
- Pacer Trendpilot® European Index ETF (PTEU): Exposure alternates between FTSE Eurozone Index, T-bills and a 50/50 blend based on trend following. Current Exposure: 100% Equity
The Cash Cows IndexSM Series employs a passive rules-based security selection process to identify top companies in an index universe based on their free cash flow yield. These funds focus on “cash cow” companies with high free cash flow yield, an indicator of financial stability and a company’s ability to increase dividends, buy back shares, expand operations or purchase other companies.
Pacer currently has two funds in the Cash Cows IndexSM Series that trade on the Bats Global Market Exchange:
- Pacer Global Cash Cows Dividend ETF (GCOW): Uses a free cash flow yield screen and a dividend yield screen to invest in 100 companies in the FTSE Developed Large-Cap Index.
- Pacer US Cash Cows 100 ETF (COWZ): Is a strategy driven exchange traded fund that aims to provide capital appreciation over time by screening the Russell 1000 for the top 100 companies based on free cash flow yield.
“The climb to $1 billion in assets has been an exciting ride and it’s only the beginning. We have set the bar high for ourselves and will continue to set it higher,” says Joe Thomson, President of Pacer Financial, distributor of Pacer ETFs. “ETFs have grown rapidly in popularity and assets. Being able to differentiate ourselves through our client focused strategies and distribution plan has helped us reach this level of success in just two years. We will continue to look for ways to grow and expand, focusing on creating strategy driven ETFs to address investor needs.”
