President, Alps Advisors
Yesterday, Bill Stone, chairman and CEO of SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc., confirmed that the Windsor, Connecticut-based firm has closed on its acquisition of assets of O'Shares ETFs. Laton Spahr, president of SS&C Alps Advisors [profile], confirms that O'Shares' four ETFs have converted into a quartet of Alps ETFs: the $781-million-AUM Alps | O'Shares U.S. Quality Dividend ETF (OUSA), the $160-million-AUM Alps | O'Shares U.S. Small-Cap Quality Dividend ETF (OUSM), the $221-million-AUM Alps | O'Shares Global Internet Giants ETF (OGIG), and the $46-million-AUM Alps | O'Shares Europe Quality Dividend ETF (OEUR).

The deal was first unveiled back in January.

"We are very excited to bring the O'Shares team and their innovative ETFs into the SS&C Alps Advisors' fold," Stone states. Spahr adds that the deal complements SS&C Alps' "existing income and thematic ETF investment principles."

As part of the deal, Boston- and Montreal-based O'Shares Investments will license its ETF indexes to SS&C Alps and will support the ETFs via ongoing marketing.

"We look forward to working with SS&C Alps leadership and sales team to support the growth of the funds in all markets across the country," states Kevin O'Leary (aka "Mr. Wonderful"), chairman of O'Shares.
