Compass EMP launches its third ETF-based Mutual Fund

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(January 5, 2010)--Compass Efficient Model Portfolios (EMP) has launched the Compass EMP Alternative Investment Fund to trade under the ticker symbols of CAIAX, CAICX, and CAITX. This Fund will join the Compass EMP Long-Term Growth Fund (LTGAX, LTGCX, LTGTX) and Compass EMP Conservative-to-Moderate Fund (CTMAX, CTMCX, CTMTX) within the Compass EMP family of funds.

The Compass EMP Alternative Investment Fund, constructed with exchange traded funds (“ETFs”), is a global, multi-asset class portfolio with broadly diversified alternative investments including commodities, managed futures, currencies, real estate, emerging market equities and inflation protected bonds. It is designed to complement traditional investments in U.S. based equity and fixed income markets. The fund’s investment objective is long-term capital appreciation with current income as a secondary objective.

“After the successful market adoption of our initial funds launched last year, we chose to act upon demand in the marketplace for an alternative investment mutual fund based upon the asset allocation models which we have been utilizing for our institutional clients since 2003,” said Stephen M. Hammers, CIMA, managing partner and chief investment officer for Compass EMP.

About Compass EMP Funds: The Compass EMP funds are strategic asset allocation portfolios structured to provide diversification among multiple asset classes, markets and economies in an attempt to manage risk and improve returns. The global indexing asset allocation strategy is designed to produce high positive risk-adjusted returns (alpha) versus broad world benchmarks over full market cycles.

About Compass EMP: Brentwood, Tenn.-based Compass EMP is a Registered Investment Advisor with the SEC and is an ETF manager offering globally diversified, multi-asset class investment portfolios to financial advisors and their clients. Co-founded in 1996 by David J. Moore, CFP® and Stephen M. Hammers, CIMA, Compass EMP has since expanded its offering to include separately managed account services for financial advisors and their clients.
