Stamford, Connecticut-based AccuShares Investment Management revealed plans to liquidate its ETFs on September 8. And, per an AccuShares statement posted by ETF Daily News, the company "is becoming AccuShares IPP, a financial technology firm ... focused on fund innovation and the next generation of exchange traded funds."

Barron's and ETF.com also highlighted AccuShares' plans to shut down its ETFs.

AccuShares was launched in 2011 and is led by CEO and co-founder Jack Fonss, an alumnus of UBS, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley, and McKinsey.

The four ETFs that will shut down are: the AccuShares Spot CBOE Vix Up ETF (VXUP) and the AccuShares Spot CBOE VIX Down ETF (VXDN), both of which launched in 2015; and the AccuShares S&P GSCI Crude Oil Excess Return Down ETF (OILD) and the AccuShares S&P GSCI Crude Oil Excess Return Up ETF, both of which launched earlier this summer.
