Pacer ETFs Expands Cash Cows Series with Launch of Developed Markets Growth Leaders ETF

The firm adds the latest fund to the widely successful Cash Cows series focused on international large- and mid-cap equity names with high free cash flow

MALVERN, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Pacer ETFs (“Pacer”), an ETF issuer focused on strategy-driven, rules-based ETFs, announces today the launch of the Pacer Developed Markets Cash Cows Growth Leaders ETF (NYSE: EAFG). The fund joins the firm’s successful Cash Cows fund family, a series of ETFs centered around free cash flow focused strategies.

The launch of this fund coincides with a new partnership between Pacer and MSCI, as EAFG is the first of Pacer’s funds to screen equity names using an MSCI Index. EAFG’s strategy tracks the Pacer Developed Markets Cash Cows Growth Leaders Index, pulling the top 100 international large- and mid-cap securities in developed markets with above-average free cash flow margin from the MSCI EAFE Index. The fund supplements Pacer’s product lineup by providing an international growth option alongside the firm’s US large-cap and small-cap growth strategies, COWG and CAFG.

“As markets have been impacted by elevated interest rates and geopolitical tensions, investors’ attention has shifted towards resilient strategies like the high free cash flow approach of our Cash Cows funds,” says Sean O’Hara, President of Pacer ETF Distributors. “Launching EAFG aims to provide investors with a novel growth opportunity that’s designed to navigate the current global landscape while leveraging names in developed markets beyond our borders. This addition to our product lineup underscores our firm’s commitment to delivering diversified and impactful solutions with investors’ goals in mind. We have found strategically screening companies with the highest free cash flow margin over time may produce higher current and future sales and earnings growth.”

“The launch of EAFG not only marks the latest expansion of our most successful series, but also represents a significant milestone as our first collaboration with index provider MSCI,” adds Joe Thomson, President of Pacer Financial. “We are continuously working to strengthen our partnerships and innovate our product offerings to address the changing dynamics of markets and help investors meet their portfolio goals. We thank our investors and partners for their loyal support as we drive this mission.”

The Cash Cows Series has found notable success through its unique free cash flow approach, having amassed over $34 billion in assets among its 9 funds following a 118.2% growth rate in 2023.
