Pacer ETFs Crosses $2 Billion AUM Threshold

Pacer ETFs, an award-winning ETF provider that offers passive, rules-based strategies, is excited to announce a major milestone in less than three years since launch.

“We’re very excited to have crossed the $2 billion mark in under three years. Our rapid growth rate is due, in part, to our unique series of ETFs, the Pacer Trendpilot® Series, the Pacer Cash Cows IndexSM Series and the Pacer Custom ETF Series. Our goal is to offer investors timely solutions to help them maintain wealth and achieve higher returns over time,” says Sean O’Hara, President of Pacer ETF Distributors. “Reaching this milestone is possible due to the hard work and dedication of our team and our partners at S&P, NASDAQ, FTSE Russell, U.S. Bank and Cboe. We also owe our success to the financial advisors who believe in what we do and implement our strategies for their clients.”

Since its inception, Pacer ETFs won seven industry awards and has been recognized as one of the fastest growing new ETF issuers.

Pacer ETFs currently has three series of ETFs:

The Pacer Trendpilot® Series uses a trend following strategy that aims to participate in the market when it is trending up, maintain some exposure during short-term market declines and exit the market when it is trending down. Pacer currently has four Trendpilot® ETFs that trade on the Cboe Global Market Exchange:

  • Pacer Trendpilot® US Large Cap ETF (PTLC): Exposure alternates between S&P 500, 3-month US T-bills and a 50/50 blend based on trend following. Current Exposure: 100% Equity
  • Pacer Trendpilot® US Mid Cap ETF (PTMC): Exposure alternates between S&P MidCap 400, T-bills and a 50/50 blend based on trend following. Current Exposure: 100% Equity
  • Pacer Trendpilot® 100 ETF (PTNQ): Exposure alternates between NASDAQ-100®, T-bills and a 50/50 blend based on trend following. Current Exposure: 100% Equity
  • Pacer Trendpilot® European Index ETF (PTEU): Exposure alternates between FTSE Eurozone Index, T-bills and a 50/50 blend based on trend following. Current Exposure: 100% Equity

The Pacer Cash Cows IndexSM Series employs a passive rules-based security selection process to identify top companies in an index universe based on their free cash flow yield. These ETFs focus on “cash cow” companies with high free cash flow yield, an indicator of financial stability and a company’s ability to increase dividends, buy back shares, expand operations or purchase other companies. Pacer currently has four funds in the Cash Cows IndexSM Series that trade on the Cboe Global Market Exchange:

The Pacer Custom ETF Series includes strategy-driven, rules-based ETFs each designed to offer a specific investment focus. Pacer currently has two ETFs in this series:

  • Pacer WealthShield ETF (PWS): Uses a trend following strategy that aims to evaluate the strength and momentum of fixed income and equity sectors and industries to determine whether to direct some or all of its exposure to U.S. equities and U.S. Treasury Securities.
  • Pacer Military Times Best Employers ETF (VETS): Aims to provide exposure to U.S. companies that support recruiting, training and professional development of military veterans, service members and their families.

Pacer ETFs has also recently hired five new employees who will work with financial advisors throughout the country in order to continue its momentum.

“We’re only just beginning,” says Joe Thomson, President of Pacer Financial, distributor of Pacer ETFs. “We have found a way to separate ourselves from the pack by emphasizing our client-focused strategies and our highly focused distribution plan. We will continue to build on our success and look for ways to expand our reach to address the needs of investors.”
