Pacer ETFs, a seven-time award winning1 ETF provider that offers index based strategy driven exchange traded funds, continued to establish itself as a larger player in the ETF market as 2017 came to a close by hitting new highs in assets under management (AUM), launching new products and making a key addition to its sales team.
- After crossing the $1 billion AUM mark in 2017, Pacer ETFs has more than doubled its total AUM, an increase from $734.61 million to $1.56 billion (between 12/31/16 and 12/29/17).
- The firm successfully launched three new funds, the Pacer Developed Markets International Cash Cows 100 ETF (ICOW), the Pacer US Small Cap Cash Cows 100 ETF (CALF) and the Pacer WealthShield ETF (PWS).
- Pacer ETFs enlisted Citi and S&P Dow Jones Indices to bring enhanced strategies and index-based management approaches to current and future products.
- The firm hired Senior Vice President Phil Eichinger, who has bolstered Pacer ETFs’ wholesaling efforts and expanded its wholesaling team to 22.
“The new product launches, AUM growth and newly formed relationships highlight the accomplishments we had in 2017 as a company seeking to provide investors with strategies that add value to their portfolios,” says Sean O’Hara, President of Pacer ETFs. “Our ETFs have grown rapidly in popularity, all thanks to our dedication to capitalizing on new opportunities while providing great service to our clients.”
“Pacer ETFs made great strides in 2017 in the ETF industry,” states Joe Thomson, President of Pacer Financial Inc. “We are well positioned for 2018 and are looking forward to the New Year.”
