- Ticker: SANE Fund to invest in companies that intersect at least one area of mental health -
NEW YORK, Dec. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ - Subversive Capital Advisor (the “Advisor” or the “Company”), a Registered Investment Advisor primarily focused on different mission-driven emerging sectors, has launched its Subversive Decarbonization exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) (Ticker: DKRB), Subversive Food Security ETF (Ticker: KCAL) and Subversive Mental Health ETF (Ticker: SANE) on Cboe BZX Exchange. DKRB, KCAL and SANE are actively managed ETFs that are available for trading as of December 23, 2022. Christian H. Cooper will act as the ETFs’ Portfolio Manager.
“To us, ‘decarbonization’ does not mean the absence of carbon in the Fund, but rather the inclusion of companies with the tools and technologies urgently needed to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels as we continue to power the modern world,” said Mr. Cooper. “That means investing in battery technologies and the rare earth minerals that comprise them; proven nuclear and fusion technologies; and cash flow positive and cost-effective hydropower assets.”
The DKRB Fund will invest primarily in equity securities that are involved in nuclear technology and infrastructure that supports decarbonization efforts, or in companies that invest in technology and tools necessary to support the decarbonization of the current global energy supply chain. These might also include companies involved in battery technology; wind and solar networks; the infrastructure that supports decarbonization efforts. The DKRB Fund has a 0.75% management fee.
Mr. Cooper continued, “Fractured supply chains, higher inflation, climate change and greater uncertainty makes food security one of the most pressing concerns of our changing world. We believe the relevant inputs, assets and processes – such as fertilizer, farmland and consumer-facing distribution, respectively – are dramatically underpriced, even in the current environment. KCAL seeks to vertically own the inputs, assets and processes that will be crucial to feeding the global population, in an increasingly multi-polar world.”
The KCAL Fund is a portfolio of publicly-listed equity securities of companies that intersect the production, distribution, or delivery of food, or companies that invest in technology and tools necessary to support global food security. The KCAL Fund has a 0.75% management fee.
Mr. Cooper added, “If nothing else, the last few years of the pandemic, economic uncertainty, and a war in Europe have laid bare the stark reality, and cost, of the global mental health crisis. Treatment-resistant depression in the U.S. alone accounts for over $90 billion dollars in incremental annual health care costs. But this is not the whole picture. One missing piece of the puzzle is the dramatic rise in metabolic syndrome and inflammation; and their apparent direct connection to brain health. The most recent research has even begun to refer to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease as “Type III” diabetes, which reflects the idea behind the SANE Fund: that metabolic health is mental health. To us, this means everything from owning companies focused on the early detection and management of metabolic syndrome to large pharmaceutical companies developing drugs for diabetes, depression, Alzheimer’s, and metabolic epilepsy.”
Mr. Cooper concluded, “Subversive is building our ETF practice by envisioning what the next state of the world looks like and realizing the best value within that narrative. The world order has changed significantly in the past two years, in part because of the invasion of Ukraine, and investors have to adapt accordingly.”
The SANE Fund will invest in a portfolio of publicly-listed equity securities of companies – and the companies who invest in them – that intersect at least one area of mental health, including but not limited to fitness, sleep, nutrition, and pharmaceuticals for potential use in the treatment of mental illnesses. The Advisor will also seek to identify companies working on new tools, treatments, and medications designed to help address the global toll of untreated or ongoing mental health issues, including major depressive disorder. The SANE Fund has a 0.75% management fee.
