TORONTO, Aug. 6 /CNW/ - As of June 30, 2008, HAHN Investment reached
another milestone with its ETF-only separately managed account (SMA) service.
The firm now has a 5 year history of managing active global portfolios
exclusively utilizing ETFs.
The first visionary firm to recognize the industry-changing impact of
ETFs, HAHN Investment built its own technology platform beginning in 2001,
enabling the firm to bring custom portfolio-building efficiencies to clients.
July 1, 2003 was the ground-breaking day where it first became possible to
construct institutional-quality global balanced portfolios entirely with ETFs.
At that time, the last missing asset class came into existence in ETF
As of that point, HAHN has now tracked 5 years of history, to its
knowledge the longest of any firm in the world offering balanced, ETF-only,
global portfolios. Not surprisingly, HAHN Investment has gained international
notice, recently garnering prominent coverage in a UK-based industry
Says founder Wilfred Hahn, "We've done our journeymanship in this
industry, being on the forefront of the ETF revolution and taking it the next
stage." Industry-wide, ETFs and their portfolio applications continue to
expand rapidly and gaining wide interest. As such, the ETF field is becoming
much more complex, challenging and opportunist. HAHN is ideally positioned
with its expertise, according to Davee Gunn, CEO: "Now more than ever,
experience and pedigree counts. It goes without saying that our successful
5-year track record took exactly that - 5 years of being on the front lines.
And, we continue to innovate, adding new ETF-related portfolio solutions."
