LOS ANGELES, June 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Advanced Research Investment Solutions (ARIS), the Los Angeles-based wealth management and consulting firm with $12 billion in assets under management (AUM), today announced the RPAR Risk Parity ETF (NYSE: RPAR) has surpassed $500 million in AUM, just 6 months following its launch in December 2019. The fund seeks to provide investors with low-cost and tax-efficient passive exposure to a risk parity investment strategy. According to Yahoo! Finance, RPAR is one of fastest growing ETFs of 20201 and has been nominated for Newcomer Alternative ETF of the Year by Fund Intelligence2. It was also recently named the Best New Alternatives ETF of the Year by etf.com3.

"We are so pleased that RPAR is available to investors in today’s unprecedented, uncertain times. The need for diversification and management of market volatility has become paramount in advisors’ and investors’ minds,” said Alex Shahidi, Partner and Co-Founder of ARIS Consulting. "RPAR’s approach differs from traditional portfolio allocation strategies, which tend to be overly dependent on environments that favor strong equity performance. We are excited to gain investors’ interest and recognition from and Fund Intelligence."

The RPAR Risk Parity ETF seeks to generate positive returns during periods of economic growth, preserve capital during periods of economic contraction, and preserve real rates of return during periods of heightened inflation. The fund diversifies its allocation among four asset classes – equities, commodities, Treasury bonds (Treasuries), and Treasury inflation-protected securities (TIPS) and has a 53 bps gross expense ratio (50 bps net).

ARIS is leveraging its extensive experience with risk parity investment strategies in the management of RPAR, as the firm currently utilizes this approach for many of its existing clients. Prior to starting ARIS, Co-Founder Damien Bisserier was a Senior Investment Associate at Bridgewater Associates, which is known for being one of the world's largest hedge fund managers and a pioneer in risk parity.
