Bats ETF Marketplace Welcomes Industry’s First Midcap Sector ETFs with Nine New Products from Elkhorn

23 Issuers, 137 Funds Now Listed on Bats in the U.S.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. & NEW YORK--()--Bats Global Markets, Inc. (Bats: BATS), the #1 U.S. market operator for the trading of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), today welcomed nine new midcap sector ETFs from Elkhorn Investments, the industry’s first suite of midcap sector-based products. All of the issues begin trading today on the Bats ETF Marketplace.

“We are excited to bring to market what may be the last frontier of beta exposure to an important area of U.S. equities, midcap sectors”

“Since Elkhorn’s initial listing on Bats in 2015, they’ve been a strong partner and the launch of this first-of-its-kind midcap offering is evidence of their innovative mindset,” said Laura Morrison, Senior Vice President and Global Head of Exchange-Traded Products at Bats.

“We are excited to bring to market what may be the last frontier of beta exposure to an important area of U.S. equities, midcap sectors,” said Graham Day, CFA, Senior Vice President, Head of Product and Research, at Elkhorn Investments. “Midcaps are commonly referred to as a ‘sweet spot’ for equity investing given their long-term outperformance of both large and small caps and we believe the Elkhorn S&P MidCap Sector ETFs will provide ETF investors better tools to access this space.”

  • The Elkhorn S&P MidCap Consumer Discretionary Portfolio (Bats: XD), seeking investment results that generally correspond to the price and yield of the S&P MidCap 400® Capped Consumer Discretionary Index.
