NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Strategy Shares, a family of exchange traded funds (ETFs) focused on bringing unique strategies to the ETF marketplace, has surpassed $500 million in assets under management (AUM). This growth in assets represents a 129% growth for the firm since the beginning of 2021.
Strategy Shares’ portfolio of offerings includes two ETFs:
- Strategy Shares Nasdaq 7HANDL™ Index ETF (HNDL) offers a distinct Nasdaq Dorsey Wright approach for a zero-yield world. HNDL is a first-of-its-kind target distribution ETF designed to seek investment results that correlate generally, before fees and expenses, to the price and yield performance of the Nasdaq 7HANDL™ Index. HNDL has historically met its objective of generating investment results that track the 7% target distribution yield of the Nasdaq 7HANDL™ Index.
- Strategy Shares Newfound/ReSolve Robust Momentum ETF (ROMO) seeks to provide momentum-based exposure to global equity regions while simultaneously avoiding significant and prolonged drawdowns. Unlike many tactical strategies, which implement a “light switch” approach, ROMO implements a distinct “dimmer switch” approach.
Strategy Shares is launching a new ETF, the Strategy Shares Gold-Hedged Bond ETF (GLDB). The investment strategy is premised on the proposition that an investment in gold can potentially provide a hedge against inflation for a bond investment. The ETF will combine a gold overlay with bonds in one portfolio to give investors what we believe is an optimum way to generate income while maintaining purchasing power.

HNDL and ROMO
Investment in a fund of funds is subject to the risks and expenses of the underlying funds. Diversification and asset allocation may not protect against market risk or loss of principal. Certain sectors and markets perform exceptionally well based on current market conditions and the Nasdaq 7HANDL ETF can benefit from that performance. Achieving such exceptional returns involves the risk of volatility and investors should not expect that such results will be repeated. The use of leverage can amplify the effects of market volatility on the Fund’s share price and make the Fund’s returns more volatile. The use of leverage may cause the Fund to liquidate portfolio positions when it would not be advantageous to do so in order to satisfy its obligations. The use of leverage may also cause the Fund to have higher expenses than those of funds that do not use such techniques.
There are risks involved with investing, including possible loss of principal. Investment in a fund of funds is subject to the risks and expenses of the underlying funds. Investments in foreign securities may involve risks such as social and political instability, market illiquidity, exchange-rate fluctuations, a high level of volatility and limited regulation. Investing in emerging markets involves different and greater risks, as these countries are substantially smaller, less liquid and more volatile than securities markets in more developed markets. The Fund will concentrate its investments in securities of a particular industry and/or geographic region to the extent the Index does. This may cause the Fund’s net asset value or market price to fluctuate more than that of the Fund that does not concentrate in a particular industry or geographic region. Securities issued or guaranteed by federal agencies or authorities and U.S. government-sponsored instrumentalities or enterprises may not be backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, which could affect the Fund’s ability to recover should they default. Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the ETF. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.

Shareholders should not assume that the source of a distribution from the Fund is net profit. Shareholders should note that return of capital will reduce the tax basis of their shares and potentially increase the taxable gain, if any, upon disposition of their shares. The distribution rate may be modified at any time. Shares of this ETF are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the ETF. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
Investments involve risk including possible loss of principal. The Fund is classified as “nondiversified” to the extent that the Index concentrates in an industry so that a relative high percentage of the Fund’s assets may be invested in a limited number of issuers. The fund invests in the underlying constituents of the index that consists of a Bond and Gold component. The Fund may also invest in more aggressive investments such as foreign and emerging market securities (which may expose the fund to currency and exchange rate fluctuations), total return swaps and futures (which may involve leverage that could increase the volatility of the Fund and reduce its returns) and derivatives which may amplify volatility. Investing in bonds are subject to credit, prepayment and interest rate risk. As interest rates rise causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities owned by the fund.
The price of gold fluctuates over time. There is no guarantee that an investment in gold will increase or even maintain its value. Short-term, the price of gold has fluctuated widely. If gold markets continue to be characterized by wide fluctuations, the price may change in an unpredictable manner. Long-term, gold markets have historically experienced extended periods of flat or declining prices. There is no guarantee that the price of gold will move as expected relative to the U.S. dollar, nor is there any guarantee that gold will act as an effective inflation hedge. The Fund is a new fund with no history of operations as an ETF for investors to evaluate.
