Long and short straws

Solutions to enter market with long/short equity ETF

Wed, 14/11/2012 - 06:17

New exchange-traded fund provider Solutions is planning to launch its first fund – a long-short equity ETF – according to regulatory filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

According to the prospectus, Solutions’ AltShares US Long/Short Fund will primarily hold shares of ETFs, as well as shares of certain exchange-traded products that are not registered as investment companies under the Act. 

The initial fund may also hold US or non-US fixed income or equity securities, depositary receipts, currencies, closed-end funds, cash and cash equivalents.

Solutions is headed by Matt Brown and Bill Smalley, who were both executives of the now defunct ETF provider Factor Shares.
