Subversive Announces Launch of Metaverse Exchange Traded Fund

Ticker: “PUNK” fund, short “META”, to provide public access to exciting asset classes within growing metaverse market

NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Subversive Capital Advisor (“Advisor” or the “Company”), a recently established registered investment advisor primarily focused on different mission-driven emerging sectors, launches its first ETF – Subversive Metaverse ETF (Ticker: PUNK) on Cboe BZX Exchange. PUNK, which is expected to begin trading on January 27, 2022, is an actively managed exchange-traded fund (“ETF”). The Advisor is managed by Subversive’s founder, Michael Auerbach, and Christian H. Cooper will act as the ETFs Portfolio Manager.

The PUNK Fund seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing in globally-listed equity securities of companies that provide services and products that support the infrastructure and applications of the Metaverse. Companies selected for inclusion in the PUNK Fund’s portfolio will be engaged in the experience, discovery, creator economy, spatial computing, decentralization, human interface, and/or infrastructure aspects of the Metaverse. The PUNK Fund has a 0.75% management fee.

“Subversive Capital prides itself on identifying opportunities, particularly in emerging sectors and themes, that provide our shareholders with exposure to disruptive and rapidly growing industries,” said Michael Auerbach. “While still in the early stage of development, there are already a compelling variety of companies that have established themselves as leaders within the Metaverse today, and we believe there is much to gain as this industry evolves. With our backgrounds and history of successful early-stage investments in disruptive emerging companies and industries, we’re excited to bring this unique investment option to the market.”

“Considering the amount of opportunity untouched within this market, we see the term ‘meta’-anything disproportionately associated with overpowering companies like Facebook,” said Christian H. Cooper. “Our mission here at Subversive is to question the integrity of the status quo–which is why the PUNK Fund is short META1–and build a foundation for people to appreciate these emerging sectors just as much as we do. We want to make sure this industry develops, without getting ‘Zucked-up’, from those who see the true potential of this space.”

“Cboe is pleased to assist Subversive to bring their innovative ETF to market,” said Laura Morrison, Global Head of Listings at Cboe Global Markets. “We believe PUNK offers a highly differentiated strategy that will provide investors with a new way to gain exposure to the Metaverse sector, and we look forward to providing the highest quality markets and services for their shareholders.”

Cboe BZX Exchange is operated by Cboe Global Markets, a leading provider of market infrastructure and tradable products, and a premier listing venue for exchange-traded products globally.
