PureFunds is a New York City based research firm serving as the Business Manager or Sponsor to the PureFunds ETFs. We aim to provide investors with tactical ETFs that may offer investment opportunities in industries that traditionally have been difficult to invest in.
Founded in 2010, PureFunds recognized a void in the Exchange Traded Product universe. Although there were many ETF issuers and products in the marketplace, specific thematic investments that the market desired were simply overlooked. With this realization in mind, we partnered with world-class industry leaders to develop these concepts into tradable products.
With vast experience in global equity investing and ETF trading, we provide refreshing and alternative insight into the growing world of ETFs. PureFunds has constructed a distinct suite of products in an attempt to meet the needs of investors and traders alike.
PureFunds endeavors to increase our presence in the thematic technology ETF marketplace by expanding our suite of innovative, first-to-market ETFs.
