Company Press Release
NEW YORK, April 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Bank of New York Mellon, the global leader in asset servicing and a leader in asset management, has been selected to provide exchange-traded fund (ETF) services, sub-advisory services, transfer agency services, fund accounting, fund administration, and custody services for the first three RevenueShares ETFs. The three index ETFs are weighted by the revenues of the companies in the Standard & Poor's core domestic indexes instead of by market capitalization, which has been the most common way to structure index funds.
The three funds are the RevenueShares Large Cap Fund (NYSE: RWL - News), the RevenueShares Mid Cap Fund (NYSE: RWK - News), and the RevenueShares Small Cap Fund (NYSE: RWJ - News). The ETF services will be provided through BNY Mellon Asset Servicing, and the sub-advisory services will be provided through BNY Mellon Asset Management.

Keenan, managing director of U.S. Asset Services. "We continue to invest in technology and client service so we can meet the growing needs of investment managers."
"We believe that our offerings counterbalance index funds weighted by capitalization," said Sean O'Hara, president of RevenueShares Investor Services, LLC, the advisor for the funds. "We believe this type of weighting positions investors for better long-term returns."
