Chi-X Australia has welcomed the launch of two new global equity exchange-traded funds (ETF) from boutique fund manager Talaria Asset Management.
The stock exchange announced Talaria today launched the Talaria Global Equity Fund (Chi-X: TLRA) and Talaria Global Equity Fund Currency Hedged (Chi-X: TLRH), which provide investors access to a portfolio containing up to 45 globally listed companies.
Chi-X Australia chief executive Vic Jokovic noted the new global equities ETFs prioritised becoming a reliable source of income for investors, while protecting portfolios from market weaknesses.
“We’re excited to be able to offer Talaria Asset Management’s deep expertise in global equities on Chi-X. Investors are increasingly searching for reliable, high-income opportunities, and by offering TLRA and TLRH on Chi-X, more investors will be able to trade two new innovative products,” Jokovic said.
Talaria Asset Management chief executive Jamie Mead said the ETFs provided investors with the opportunity to earn strong income revenues.
“Launching our successful global equity strategies on the Chi-X exchange is significant for all those Australians seeking access to active global equity strategies designed to deliver strong income to their portfolio,” Mead said.
“Talaria’s bottom-up research focus, combined with our 16-year track record of delivering consistent income with relatively low market risk, will enable our active ETFs to truly stand out in the market.”
TLRA and TLRH began trading on Chi-X today and are available through Chi-X market participants and supporting stockbrokers.
