Aveo Capital & Blue Sky Asset Management
"[We're] constantly trying to better serve clients; [the] better way [to do that is] to execute our strategies in the form of an ETF," Keys Tinney
, founder and managing partner of Blue Sky Asset Management
Of the five funds, one falls into the dynamic beta category, which is designed to select "securities from the Russell 1000 that have the highest reward to risk" ratio, which they call an "invest from the windshield, not the rearview mirror" approach. The other four ETFs fall into the risk-managed category.
Blue Sky launched in 2013, emerging out of an RIA. (The founder started his career at a wirehouse.) They develop investment products geared towards institutions and private investors working with financial advisors. The company's logo, a snowflake, represents what they pitch as their "simple yet elegantly complex" approach.
Northern Lights Distributors, LLC
serves as the funds' distributor. Brown Brothers Harriman & Co
serves as the funds' custodian and transfer agent. Thompson Hine LLP
serves as the funds' legal counsel.
As for future products, Blue Sky prefers to "walk before they run," but expects complimentary products to be offered down the line.
