Ameristock Joins the ETF Crowd

News summary by MFWire's editors

Yet another company has hopped on the ETF bandwagon. Ameristock Corporation has launched five U.S. Treasury ETFs. The funds began trading on the American Stock Exchange today.


The American Stock Exchange® (Amex®) and Ameristock Corporation (Ameristock) announced today the launch of trading in five new U.S. Treasury exchange traded funds (ETFs). These five new fixed income funds represent Ameristock’s first foray into the ETF product category.

“The American Stock Exchange is proud to partner with Ameristock on the launch of their first five ETFs,” said Scott Ebner, Senior Vice President of Amex’s ETF Marketplace. “We are pleased to have been selected to list these new products, which enable investors to target their exposure to specific maturities in the U.S. Treasury market.”
