DURANGO, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Swan Global Investments (“Swan”), a specialized asset management firm with a 20+ years track record in hedged equity solutions, today announced that Swan Hedged Equity Exchange-Traded Fund (Ticker Symbol: “HEGD”) has surpassed a significant milestone of over $75 million in assets under management in just over half a year. HEGD was created to help long-term investors participate in the equity markets for capital appreciation while hedging against the risks associated with today’s often volatile markets. HEGD’s asset level will allow more investors and advisors to gain accessibility to the fund.
Swan launched HEGD using its time-tested, proprietary Defined Risk Strategy (“DRS”), which utilizes hedged equity and options-based strategies. By doing so, the ETF focuses on mitigating market risks. HEGD pairs the benefits of passive investing1 in equity index ETFs with actively managed options strategies, potentially resulting in a less turbulent investment experience and more consistent returns.
“The fast-paced growth of our ETF demonstrates increasing investor concern over current market volatility after a massive rebound from COVID-19. The unpredictability of the market and rising apprehension around inflation are leading investors and advisors to look for capital appreciation while mitigating risks,” said Randy Swan, Founder and Lead Portfolio Manager of Swan Global Investments. “Financial advisors and investors would be wise to temper any bullish optimism and consider the increasingly fragile, if not perilous foundation on which the markets sit.”
ETFs continue to grow in popularity, largely due to their easy-to-use, low-cost nature. Financial advisors are increasingly shifting their clients toward ETFs to provide them with 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 remain in the market while hedging risks in potentially volatile and unpredictable markets,” said Jamie Atkinson, Head of Global Sales for Swan Global Investments.

Please read the prospectus carefully before you invest. An investment in the fund involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Past performance does not guarantee future results.
The fund’s investment objective 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 risk, including possible loss of principal. Shares of any ETF are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. There is no guarantee the Fund will meet its objective. The Fund will use put and call options, which are referred to as “derivative” instruments since their values are based on, or derived from, an underlying reference 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 in excess of the amount invested. Options used by the Fund to reduce volatility and generate returns may not perform as intended. There can be no assurance that the Fund’s option strategy will be effective. It may expose the Fund to losses, e.g., option premiums, to which it would not have otherwise been exposed. Further, the option strategy may not fully protect the Fund against declines in the value of its portfolio securities. The prices of options may change rapidly over time and do not necessarily move in tandem with the price of the underlying securities. Purchasing put options may result in the Fund’s loss of premiums paid in the event that the put options expire unexercised.
