Compass EMP Lists Three New ETFs on The NASDAQ Stock Market

CFA, CFO and CDC, to Begin Trading on July 2nd, 2014 

NASDAQ OMX today announced that Compass EMP will list three new exchange traded funds (ETFs) on Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014. Compass EMP U.S. 500 Volatility Weighted Index ETF (Symbol:CFA), Compass EMP U.S. 500 Enhanced Volatility Weighted Index ETF (Symbol:CFO) and Compass EMP U.S. EQ Income 100 Enhanced Volatility Weighted Fund (Symbol:CDC), will list on The NASDAQ Stock Market® (NASDAQ®).

"We are excited to introduce the first broad market, smart beta index that enhances market efficiency through fundamental criteria and security volatility weighting," said Stephen Hammers, Chief Investment Officer of Compass EMP Funds. "These ETFs are also the first to market that have the ability to liquidate 75% of the securities in the index to cash in the event of a market decline."

The CFA Fund finds investment results that correlate with the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the CEMP U.S. Large Cap 500 Volatility Weighted Index (the "CFA Index"). The CFA Index is a passive broad market index consisting of the common stock of the 500 largest U.S. based companies with four quarters of positive earnings weighted based on their daily standard deviation (volatility).

CFO looks for investment results that correlate with the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the CEMP U.S. Large Cap 500 Long/Cash Volatility Weighted Index (the "CFO Index"). The CFO Index is a passive broad market index consisting of the common stock of the 500 largest U.S. based companies with four quarters of positive earnings weighted based on their daily standard deviation (volatility). The index has the ability to liquidate up to 75% of the securities to cash in the event of a market decline.

CDC seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the CEMP U.S. Large Cap High Dividend 100 Long/Cash Volatility Weighted Index (the "CDC Index"). The CDC Index is a passive index and generally consists of the common stock of the 100 highest dividend yielding stocks of the CEMP U.S. Large Cap 500 Volatility Weighted Index. The index securities are then weighted based on their daily standard deviation (volatility). The index has the ability to liquidate up to 75% of the securities to cash in the event of a market decline.

"We are pleased to launch CDC, CFA and CFO with our partners at Compass EMP and we are thrilled they chose the NASDAQ marketplace to list and trade their ETFs," said Dave LaValle, Head of Exchange Traded Product Listings at NASDAQ OMX. "Compass EMP will benefit from NASDAQ's highly efficient listings platform for Exchange Traded Product suites and the liquidity spectrum we represent."
