On Tuesday, Alex Morris
, president and chief investment officer of Diffractive Managers Group's F/m Investments
the launch of the US Treasury 6 Month Bill ETF
(XBIL on the Nasdaq Stock Market, LLC
). (Diffractive is part of the 1251 Capital Group.) The new fund is designed to track the ICE BofA US 6-Month Treasury Bill Index
, and the fund is the fifth fund in F/m's US Benchmark Series
XBIL's inception date was March 7, and it now has $2.99 million in AUM. F/m (dba North Slope Capital, LLC) serves as the new fund's investment advisor, and it's PM team includes: Morris; Peter Baden
, CIO of F/m's Genoa Asset Management
; and Marcin Zdunek
, director of trading and assistant portfolio manager at F/m's Oakhurst Capital Management
"With this launch of XBIL, we're responding to investor demand for simplified access to the highest yielding US Treasury security today, with 6-month Treasuries yielding over 5%," states Morris, who co-created the US Benchmark Series. "Investors want an easy, tax-efficient way to obtain yields that have not been seen in a low-risk, liquid investment in a very long time."
Like with F/m's other US Benchmark Series ETFs (the first three debuted last August
, and the fourth launched last November
), XBIL comes with an expense ratio of 15 basis points and is a series of the RBB Fund, Inc.
. The new fund also uses the same service providers: Cohen & Company, Ltd.
as independent accounting firm; Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP
as counsel; ICE Data Services
as index provider; Jane Street Capital
