GCI Enters Active ETF Market With Equity Fund, GCIG
On Wednesday, GCI Investors, an independent asset manager, announced the launch of its first U.S.-listed ETF, the Genuine Investors ETF (NYSE: GCIG). This active fund provides exposure to a long-term strategy of high-conviction investments powered by in-house valuation and quality analysis.
GCI’s move into the ETF space allows access to the firm’s previously private strategy of “Genuine Investing.” This investment approach entails constructing a portfolio of high-quality businesses in certain industries that are structurally more attractive than others. “Genuine Investing” is differentiated and unburdened by common industry constraints such as short-duration time horizons, index-tracking, and the institutional imperative to sell newer products constantly.
