Syntax Advisors Appoints Carly Arison President and Chief Operating Officer

NEW YORK--()--Syntax Advisors LLC, an ETF sponsor and investment advisor (NYSE Arca: SSPY, SMDY, SSLY, SYUS, SHUS), announced today the appointment of Carly Arison to serve as President and Chief Operating Officer.

“Carly has played a key role in the development and growth of Syntax and its predecessor companies for nearly a decade,” said Rory Riggs, Syntax’s CEO and founder. “With recent and anticipated launches of new ETFs and product offerings that leverage our unique technology platform, Carly’s appointment is a major step in building an organization that offers investors innovative solutions to diversification and portfolio management.”

Syntax’s investment approach, “Stratified Weight,” is based on a patented process to control exposure to business risk. It is an alternative to capitalization and equal weighted strategies: instead of concentrating on the largest companies and the most popular sectors, Syntax’s process determines the common risks companies and industries face, then divides exposure within carefully defined segments. This method seeks to provide investors with more balanced exposure across available business opportunities while still engaged in indexing.

“Stratified Weight ETFs represent a tool for investors to attain rules-based, diversified exposure to business risk,” said Ms. Arison. “Our Stratified Weight methodology seeks to deliver a diversified return across all of the business opportunities in a benchmark, rather than just the largest. I’m excited to continue driving Syntax’s mission to provide innovative product and technology offerings that help investors capture a fuller range of market opportunities.”

During her tenure at Syntax, Ms. Arison has been instrumental in building Syntax’s Stratified Weight suite of products and scaling its operational platform. As President and COO, she will manage strategic growth initiatives at the firm and continue to oversee company operations and product launches.

Ms. Arison received a B.A. with honors from Brown University and an MBA with distinction from the New York University Stern School of Business.
