nasdaqNasdaq announced that Global X Funds will list a new exchange-traded fund (ETF), the Global X SuperDividend® Alternatives ETF (Symbol: ALTY), which will begin trading on The Nasdaq Stock Market Tuesday, July 14, 2015.

“After a six-year bull market and the looming threat of rising interest rates, investors are increasingly looking for investment opportunities outside of the traditional equity and fixed income asset classes,” said Jay Jacobs, Research Analyst at Global X Funds. “We are excited to offer an alternatives-based solution that can potentially generate high portfolio income while diversifying potential sources of returns.”

ALTY seeks to provide investors with access to a variety of alternative income generating assets, including MLPs & Infrastructure, Real Estate, Institutional Managers, and Fixed Income & Derivative Strategies. The fund’s index methodology selects among the highest dividend yielding securities in each category of alternatives to increase the fund’s income potential. Alternatives are generally known for lower volatility compared to equities. ALTY’s methodology aims to further reduce volatility through its selection and weighting of components. By combining a variety of alternative investments into one ETF, ALTY strives to solve investors’ decisions as to which alternatives to consider for their income portfolio and how to allocate among them.
