Today, the team behind the new Themes ETF Trust filed to create 22 ETFs. Greenwich, Connecticut-based Themes Management Company, LLC will serve as the investment advisor to all of the planned funds, and Jose Gonzalez-Navarro (president of Themes) and Calvin Tsang (head of U.S. product management and development for Themes) will PM the funds. No expense ratios, tickers, or launch dates have been revealed, nor have they officially chosen an independent accounting firm to service the funds.

  • the Themes Silver Miners ETF, tracking the STOXX Global Silver Mining Index;
  • the Themes Solar Energy ETF, tracking the STOXX Global Solar Energy Index; and

  • The last planned ETF, the Themes Global Systemically Important Banks ETF, will be actively managed.

    The planned ETFs' other service providers will include: ALPS Distributors, Inc. as distributor and principal underwriter; Practus LLP as counsel; U.S. Bancorp Fund Services, LLC (dba U.S. Bank Global Fund Services) as administrator, index receipt agent, securities lending agent, and transfer agent; and U.S. Bank, National Association as custodian.

    Gonzalez-Navarro has been with Leverage Shares since 2018. Prior to that, he spent 10 years with Global X, where he served as chief innovation officer prior to its 2018 sale. He is also founder and CEO of FlexFunds, a fund accounting and administration firm, and co-founder and CEO of Leverage Shares, a European ETF shop. He is an alumnus of the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid.
