VictoryShares ETFs Exceed $5 Billion AUM Milestone

December 18, 2019 GMT

SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 18, 2019--

Victory Capital today announced that its VictoryShares ETF platform has crossed the $5 billion mark in assets under management. The firm entered the ETF business in 2015 and its growing ETF platform includes a suite of strategies that use a rules-based approach to seek to outperform traditional market cap-weighted indexing strategies.

“The methodologies behind our innovative strategic beta ETFs have resonated with investors who understand the inherent deficiencies of traditional cap-weighted indexes,” said Mannik Dhillon, President of VictoryShares and Solutions. “Our success is rooted in bringing clients solutions that seek to deliver on our mission to combine active insights with passive solutions that are low cost and tax efficient.” *

Having amassed $5 billion in assets in five years, VictoryShares is among the fastest-growing ETF issuers in the United States. ** “The ETF industry has seen rapid growth and we’re appreciative of both the opportunity to contribute to that evolution and the trust our clients have placed in us,” Dhillon said.

In addition to its risk-weighted strategies, VictoryShares leverages the active insights of Victory Capital’s Investment Franchises to offer innovative dividend growth and minimum volatility strategies, as well as active fixed income ETFs. Visit http://victoryshares.com for more information.

Investments involve risk including possible loss of principal. ETFs have the same risks as the underlying securities traded on the exchange throughout the day. Redemptions are limited and often commissions are charged on each trade, and ETFs may trade at a premium or discount to their net asset value. ETFs focused on high dividend strategies may not be successful. Dividend paying stocks may fall out of favor relative to the overall market. ETFs may invest in securities included in, or representative of securities included in, the index, regardless of their investment merits.

The ETFs are not actively managed and do not, therefore, seek returns in excess of their respective Index. However, the UITB and USTB ETFs are actively managed and judgments about a particular security, markets or investment strategy may prove to be incorrect and may cause the ETFs to incur losses.
