New ETF provides investors with easy access to the diversified list of ETFs based on the ICE DriveWealth 100 Index
APRIL 25, 2023 – NEW YORK – DriveWealth, LLC, a global fintech and pioneer in fractional investing today announced the launch of the DriveWealth ICE 100 Index ETF (Symbol: CETF). This new ETF is the first investment product built off of the ICE DriveWealth 100 Index which uses unique, proprietary methodology to select the top 100 US-listed ETFs based on size, liquidity and risk-adjusted return.
CETF tracks the ICE DriveWealth 100 Index administered by ICE Data Indices, LLC, which licenses certain methodology from DriveWealth. CETF allows investors to continuously seek investment in the top 100 US-listed ETFs. The index will rebalance quarterly.
“ETFs represent an important investment opportunity for all types of investors – from Baby Boomers to Gen Z,” comments Bob Cortright, CEO/Founder of DriveWealth. “Our partners are now able to offer their investors a way to seek access to the top 100 ETFs in the US through a single investment product.”
“By creating an index of the top-performing ETFs, rather than individual stocks, the ICE DriveWealth 100 Index offers a unique benchmark for the market as a whole,” comments Varun Pawar, Head of ICE Data Indices. “This kind of insight is valuable for all industry participants and is a demonstration of the flexibility and innovation ICE can bring to the ETF industry.”
DriveWealth is working with State Street Corporation as the administrator and service provider for the ETF. Foreside Fund Services, LLC. is the distributor of CETF.
Martin Sullivan, Senior Vice President with State Street commented, “DriveWealth is a new and innovative player in the ETF industry that leverages their financial technology acumen to facilitate investment and provide retail access for a broader set of investors. We are delighted to be working with DriveWealth and look forward to future product launches in partnership with this new player.”
Before investing, carefully consider the Fund’s investment objective, risks, charges, and expenses. This information is contained in the prospectus available at www.drivewealth.com/advisory/dwi-us100. Read carefully before investing.
Investing involves risks including possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee the fund will achieve its investment objective. The Fund will primarily invest in other ETFs and will be subject to the underlying risks of those respective funds. Equity securities are subject to changes in value, and their values may be more volatile than those of other asset classes. To the extent the Fund does not fully replicate the Index, it is subject to the risk that the investment strategy of the Fund’s investment adviser may not produce the intended results.
There is no guarantee the Fund’s investment strategy will be successful. In managing the Fund’s portfolio, the investment adviser engages one or more sub-advisers to make investment decisions for a portion of or the entire portfolio. There is a risk that the investment adviser may be unable to identify and retain sub-advisers that achieve superior investment returns relative to other similar sub-advisers.
It is not possible to directly invest in an index. Diversification does not eliminate the risk of loss.
