Amplify ETFs BlackSwan Growth & Treasury Core ETF (SWAN) surpasses USD250m in assets
Amplify ETFs has announced the BlackSwan Growth & Treasury Core ETF (NYSE: SWAN) has surpassed USD250 million in assets under management, as it has continued to buffer against significant losses while seeking uncapped upside to the S&P 500 Index.
The Fund has generated a positive total return of 3.85 per cent year-to-date (as of 4/24/20), outperforming the S&P 500 Total Return Index by 15.51 per cent amid significant market volatility in 2020.
“This year investors have been grappling with unprecedented uncertainty in equity markets due to the growing impact of the COVID-19 outbreak,” says Christian Magoon, Founder and CEO of Amplify ETFs. “SWAN has delivered what it was designed to do during choppy equity markets: help investors mitigate significant losses. While the BlackSwan ETF’s 22.03 per cent return in 2019 showed the strategy’s upside potential in positive equity markets, SWAN’s performance this year demonstrates its downside protection.”
SWAN is a low-cost, simple and powerful strategy comprised of two inversely-correlated asset classes: US Treasury securities and S&P 500 long-term call options.
