DURANGO, Colorado – (BUSINESS WIRE) – July 20, 2021–
Swan Global Investments (“Swan”), a specialist asset management company with more than 20 years of experience in hedged equity solutions, today announced that Swan Hedged Equity Exchange-Traded Fund (ticker symbol: “HEGD”) achieved a milestone of over $ 75 million in assets under management in just over six months. HEGD was created to help long-term investors participate in the equity markets for capital appreciation while protecting themselves against the risks associated with today’s often volatile markets. HEGD’s asset level will allow more investors and advisers to access the fund.
Swan launched HEGD using its proven proprietary Defined Risk Strategy (“DRS”), which utilizes covered equity and options strategies. In doing so, the ETF focuses on mitigating market risks. HEGD combines the benefits of passive investing 1 in equity index ETFs with actively managed options strategies, potentially resulting in a less turbulent investment experience and more consistent returns.
“The rapid growth of our ETF demonstrates growing investor concern over the current market volatility following a massive rebound in COVID-19. The unpredictability of the market and growing apprehension of inflation are prompting investors and advisers to seek capital appreciation while mitigating risk, ”said Randy Swan, Founder and Senior Portfolio Manager of Swan Global Investments. “Financial advisers and investors would be wise to temper any bullish optimism and view the increasingly fragile, if not perilous, basis upon which the markets rest.”
ETFs continue to gain in popularity, largely due to their easy to use and low cost nature. Financial advisers are increasingly directing their clients to ETFs to offer them liquidity, transparency and a tax-efficient way to invest their capital. “We see Defined Risk and Hedged ETFs becoming a popular strategic portfolio solution for investors to stay in the market while hedging risks in potentially volatile and unpredictable markets,” said Jamie Atkinson, Global Sales Manager for Swan Global Investments.

The investment objective of the fund is to seek long-term capital appreciation while mitigating overall market risk. The fund is new and has a limited operating history.
Exchange traded funds and mutual funds involve risks, including possible loss of capital. The shares of any ETF are bought and sold at the market price (not the NAV) and are not individually redeemed by the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its objective. The Fund will use put and call options, known as “derivative” instruments because their values are based on or derived from an underlying benchmark asset, such as an index. Derivatives can be volatile, and a small investment in a derivative can have a large impact on the performance of the Fund as derivatives can result in losses greater than the amount invested. The options used by the Fund to reduce volatility and generate returns may not work as expected. There can be no assurance that the Fund’s options strategy will be effective. It may expose the Fund to losses, for example option premiums, to which it would not otherwise have been exposed. In addition, the options strategy may not fully protect the Fund against declines in the value of its portfolio securities. Option prices can change rapidly over time and do not necessarily change in tandem with the price of the underlying securities. The purchase of put options may result in the Fund forfeiting premiums paid in the event that the put options expire unexercised.
