MidCap Sectors ETFs

ETFtrack Comment:
The nine new midcap sector ETFs from Elkhorn Investments are the industry’s first suite of midcap sector-based products. Here is a comment from Graham Day, CFA, Senior Vice President, Head of Product and Research, at Elkhorn Investments:
We are excited to bring to market what may be the last frontier of beta exposure to an important area of U.S. equities, midcap sectors. Midcaps are commonly referred to as a ‘sweet spot’ for equity investing given their long-term outperformance of both large and small caps and we believe the Elkhorn S&P MidCap Sector ETFs will provide ETF investors better tools to access this space.”
