Troy Cates, co-founder and managing partner at NEOS Investments LLC [profile], tells MFWire that he expects them to expand their trading team and that their marketing chief will be building out a distribution and marketing team. Cates notes that Westport, Connecticut-based currently has a team of about 10 people hiring afrer recently hiring a head of trading and a new sales associate.

"We have a great team. We are continuing to build it out," Cates says. "We're trying to make strategic hires as we go along."

"Almost everybody is an owner of the firm," Cates adds.

The NEOS team launched their first three ETFs last month, as previously reported. Cates hints that more NEOS ETFs are on their way, pointing to "sector-focused ETFs that can provide income," through the use of options.

The NEOS team plan to extend their reach beyond the ETF space, too.

"We have some private funds that we'll be bringing out, and we're also offering our services as a subadvisor," Cates says, adding that a few of those partners will soon be filing to launch NEOS-powered ETFs. "We're very selective. We want to work with different advisors that know the business ... whether they're a startup or not."

"We're building this firm as a global asset manager," Cates adds. "What we're trying to do here with NEOS is bring out options-based income products, specifically in the ETF market."
