COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 27, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Strive Asset Management (“Strive”), an upstart $1.5 billion* asset manager focused on unapologetic capitalism, announced the launch of its thirteenth fund, the Strive International Developed Markets ETF (NYSE: STXI), which tracks the Bloomberg Developed Markets ex US Large & Mid Cap Total Return Index.

STXI offers investors passive exposure to markets outside the U.S. STXI will also deliver to investors Strive’s proxy voting and shareholder engagement, which aims to unlock value for investors by advocating that companies focus on maximizing value over all other considerations.

“This cost-effective index fund offers exposure to the international market, a key aspect of any balanced investment portfolio,” said Matt Cole, CEO of Strive. “Yet, this fund also comes with all the added benefits that Strive is known for: an unshakeable focus on investors’ financial interests and aggressive pro-shareholder proxy voting and engagement.”

Cole added, “We look forward to building on our successes from 2023 and into 2024 with a major expansion announcement in the coming months, which serves as a testament to the extraordinary demand for pro-capitalism and pro-meritocracy financial services.”

This month, the company passed $1.5 billion in assets under management, less than two years after the launch of their first fund, the Strive U.S. Energy ETF (DRLL). Earlier this year, Strive also announced a new retirement plan for businesses small to large, the Strive Pooled Employer Plan (Strive PEP), as well as target date/risk funds that can fit easily into existing retirement plans.
