SS&C ALPS Advisors Adds Active Large-Cap Value ETF to the Lineup

WINDSOR, Conn. and DENVER, July 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSNC) today announced that SS&C ALPS Advisors, an asset manager and wholly-owned subsidiary of SS&C, launched the ALPS | Hillman Active Value ETF (HVAL), an active large-cap value ETF.  

“ALPS Advisors is recognized for innovation and that continues with our Hillman Capital partnership,” said Laton Spahr, President of SS&C ALPS Advisors. “Bringing the strategy to market as an ETF may provide additional benefits and broadens access to the great tradition of Hillman Capital.” 

The investment process begins with proprietary fundamental analysis to identify businesses with sustainable competitive advantages.  Once qualified, the business equity will be added into the portfolio only when mispriced by markets and available at sufficient discounts to the fair market value.  Fund positions are sold if and when we have determined a company’s valuation exceeds fair market. The fund provides a fully transparent*, actively managed strategy in a low-cost**, tax-efficient*** fund structure.

“For more than 20 years, Hillman Capital has been focused on investing in quality businesses we believe possess a sustainable competitive advantage and buying these businesses at times when the markets have undervalued them,” said Mark Hillman, CEO and Chief Investment Officer of Hillman Capital Management. “Our discipline is derived from independent research, a focus on quality enterprises and fundamental valuation metrics within the fund strategy.”

* Daily disclosure of holdings.

** Ordinary brokerage fees apply.

*** Upon redemption, the ETF issuer delivers underlying securities “in kind” which can reduce the fund’s tax burden and provide higher after tax returns for investors.
