US Benchmark Series
“We believe the potential applications of these ETFs are limitless, and still being discovered,” said Peter Baden, Chief Investment Officer of Genoa Asset Management, Co-Creator of the US Benchmark Series, and Portfolio Manager of the Funds. “Ease of access, tax efficiency, and an impending derivative market on these ETFs are just some examples of why the Funds deliver targeted access to the US Treasury market.”
Why the US Benchmark Series?
“We believe the US Benchmark Series will bring revolutionary change to financial markets by giving nearly everyone simple access to the world’s most liquid securities, the US Treasury market,” said Alexander Morris, F/m’s President and CIO and Co-Creator of the US Benchmark Series. “We are equitizing the yield curve.” said Alexander Morris, F/m’s President, CIO, and Co-Creator of the US Benchmark Series.
Why US Treasury Securities?
U.S. Treasury securities are issued by the federal government and are considered to be among the safest investments, because all Treasury securities are backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government. This means that come what may—recession, inflation, war—the U.S. government is going to take care of its bondholders.
Historically, Treasury securities have a negative correlation with the equity markets and can be utilized to diversify an investor's portfolio.
We believe the Yield Curve is the foundation for nearly all investing. These ETFs equitize that yield curve to bring investors of all sizes access to the “Benchmark” US Treasuries in single-security ETFs.
