Interactive Brokers Group’s Covestor Launches Its First Smart Beta Portfolios

Feb 23, 2017

Interactive Brokers Group’s Covestor Launches Its First Smart Beta Portfolios Brings more products and convenience of online investing to individuals and advisors February 23, 2017 09:38 AM Eastern Standard Time GREENWICH, Conn.--( BUSINESS WIRE )-- Interactive Brokers Group , Inc. (NASDAQ GS:IBKR), an automated global electronic broker and market maker, announced today the launch of 10 Smart Beta portfolios. The new portfolios are managed by Interactive Brokers Group’s Covestor subsidiary, a pioneer in online investing. “These are unique products that combine the advantages of actively-managed mutual fund stock-selection techniques and the low cost of exchange traded funds,” said Thomas Peterffy, Chairman and CEO of Interactive Brokers Group, Inc. The 10 Covestor Smart Beta portfolios have low management fees of 0.08%, industry-low brokerage fees ranging between 0.01% and 0.15% depending on investment amount, and investment minimums of $5,000. The initial Covestor Smart Beta products include broad-based equity, value, growth, quality and high-dividend portfolios. “Covestor Smart Beta portfolios find the sweet spot between ETFs and mutual funds,” said Sanjoy Ghosh, Covestor’s Chief Investment Officer. “They are designed to provide broad market exposure and potentially higher returns than passively-managed index trackers.” Ghosh and his Investment Management Team have significant experience in managing quantitatively-oriented active equity strategies designed to compete with actively-traded funds in a disciplined manner. The 10 new Covestor Smart Beta portfolios include: BRMCOV™ : Broad Market Portfolio - designed to systematically deliver return and risk characteristics of large- and mid-cap stocks within the US equity market.
