On Friday, Kelsey Mowrey
, president of Motley Fool Asset Management, LLC
the Alexandria, Virginia-based firm's two new, passive ETFs
: the Motley Fool Capital Efficiency 100 ETF
(TMFE on the NYSE Arca) and the Motley Fool Next Index ETF
(TMFX on the NYSE Arca). The two new funds' inception date was last Wednesday, and, like Motley Fool Asset Management's other four fund funds, are now part of the RBB Fund
TMFE is designed to track the Motley Fool Capital Efficiency 100 Index
from The Motley Fool, LLC (TMF), an affiliate of Motley Fool Asset Management, and the index tracks the highest-scoring stocks in TMF's recommendation universe. TMFX is designed to track the Motley Fool Next Index
, also from TMF, and the index tracks mid and small cap U.S. companies in TMF's recommendation universe. Mowrey describes the two new ETFs as "uniquely passive implementations of The Motley Fool's active stock recommendations."
"Motley Asset Management is ready to build on its current product line-up by offering these types of new products to investors," Mowrey states.
The expense ratio for both new funds is 50 basis points. Bryan Hinmon
, chief investment officer and senior portfolio manager at Motley Fool Asset Management, and Anthony Arsta
, portfolio manager, are the PMs for both new funds.
Other service providers to the new funds included: Faegre Drinker Biddle and Reath LLP
as legal counsel; Quasar Distributors, LLC
as distributor and underwriter; Tait, Weller and Baker LLP
as independent accounting firm; U.S. Bank Global Fund Services
as administrator and transfer agent; and U.S. Bank, N.A. as custodian.
