February 2022 — Liquid Strategies, the parent of Overlay Shares exchange-traded funds (ETFs), announced their suite of ETFs has crossed $500 million in assets under management since it began trading on the NYSE Arca in October 2019. “Since the launch of Overlay Shares, or “Ovals”, our team has worked to help solve major investor problems through utilizing tools and strategies typically only available to large investors.”, Shawn Gibson, CIO of Overlay Shares and Liquid Strategies, “Raising $500M so rapidly after launch shows our strategies are resonating with investors and we are eager to see continued growth in 2022.”
The five original funds were launched in October 2019. The suite was expanded in early 2021, adding Overlay Shares Short Term Bond ETF (OVT) and Overlay Shares Large Cap Hedged Equity ETF (OVLH) to its investment offerings. The ETF suite combines the benefits of investing in underlying asset classes with income potential from the option overlay strategy.
The Overlay Shares ETF suite features seven sought-after and highly liquid* ETFs. Ovals can serve as core, standalone investment solutions, or as building blocks for combined asset allocation.
