NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Emles Advisors (“Emles”) announced the launch of a new actively managed exchange-traded fund (ETF); the Emles Alpha Opportunities ETF (EOPS). The new fund – managed by Nathan Miller, former equity long/short portfolio manager at NGM Asset Management, Citadel Investment Group and RBC Capital – provides institutional investors with access to a hedge fund strategy through an ETF structure.
EOPS is an equity long/short strategy that combines deep value investing and catalyst trading. Mr. Miller has implemented the underlying fund strategy for hedge funds and family offices for over 20 years. EOPS invests in value stocks of North American companies, with a focus on “old economy” sectors like industrials, consumer discretionary and materials. While assets are deployed primarily across equities, the fund has the flexibility to use options, indices, and other transparent and liquid instruments to seek to generate alpha and mitigate risk.
“EOPS provides investors the opportunity to access a true long/short hedge fund strategy and its potential returns through the transparent liquid structure of an ETF,” said Nathan Miller, Portfolio Manager at Emles. “We uncover opportunities where we believe the market is wrong about the prospects for companies, allowing us to ‘avoid the herd’- we can move against the consensus either when investors seem too pessimistic about a company and deflate its stock price or when euphoria sets in and pushes a stock’s price too high.”
The fund’s ability to take both long and short positions allows for return potential and risk management on both sides of the equation. As such, the Emles Alpha Opportunities ETF (EOPS) seeks to be an effective portfolio option for investors looking to enhance their total return potential across market cycles and preserve capital in more challenging markets.
“Emles has already created differentiated index-based products that seek to address today’s investment challenges,” said Gabriel Hammond, CEO of Emles. “With the launch of our actively managed Alpha Opportunities ETF, we’re excited to expand our suite of offerings and provide investors with an even more flexible approach to uncover and capture return opportunities.”
Today’s launch of EOPS joins the current list of Emles ETF offerings which includes:
- Emles Made in America ETF (AMER)
- Emles Luxury Goods ETF (LUXE)
- Emles Federal Contractors ETF (FEDX)
- Emles Real Estate Credit ETF (REC)
- Emles Protective Allocation ETF (DEFN)
- Emles @Home ETF (LIV)

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. ETFs trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk, fluctuate in market value and may trade at prices above or below the ETFs net asset value. Fixed income securities are subject to interest rate, inflation, credit and default risk. Investments in derivatives involve a number of risks, including counterparty risk, illiquidity, and losses greater than if they had not been used. Investments in foreign securities may involve risks such as social and political instability, market illiquidity, exchange-rate fluctuations, a high level of volatility and limited regulation. Events or conditions in one region or financial market may adversely impact issuers in a different country, region or financial market. Global events such as the current novel coronavirus (COVID-19), terrorist attacks, natural disasters, social and political discord or debt crises and downgrades, among others, may result in market volatility and have long term effects on both the U.S. and global financial markets. The Fund is non-diversified, which means that it may invest more of its assets in the securities of a single issuer or a smaller number of issuers than if it were a diversified fund. As a result, the Fund may be more exposed to the risks affecting an individual issuer or a smaller number of issuers than a fund that invests more widely. This may increase the Fund’s volatility and cause the performance of a relatively smaller number of issuers to have a greater impact on the Fund’s performance.
