WINDSOR, CT, and DENVER, CO – June 21, 2022 – SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSNC) today announced SS&C ALPS Advisors, an asset manager and wholly-owned subsidiary of SS&C, added the following O’Shares ETFs to its ETF offerings:

"These ETFs are differentiated strategies and core allocations for my family wealth. The quality dividend growth strategies are designed to reduce risk and exposure to stress events by avoiding lower-quality stocks. In addition, our thematic strategy is focused on internet and tech stocks selected for strong revenue growth, providing a portfolio of stocks with almost 100% more revenue growth than generic growth indexes,” said Kevin O’Leary, Chairman of O’Shares. “We look forward to working with SS&C ALPS leadership and sales teams to support the growth of the funds in all markets across the country.”
The ALPS | O’Shares ETFs are designed for investors with objectives ranging from wealth preservation and income to growth and capital appreciation. Each ALPS | O’Shares ETF reflects a rules-based investment philosophy, including quality as an essential characteristic, with profitability measures, cash earnings and strong balance sheets.
“The seasoned O’Shares quality and dividend methodology strengthen our set of strategic building blocks for delivering investment solutions to improve investment outcomes,” said Laton Spahr*, President of SS&C ALPS Advisors. "The O’Shares ETFs complement our existing income and thematic ETF investment principles.”

The Funds employ a “passive management” - or indexing - investment approach and seek investment results that correspond (before fees and expenses) generally to the performance of their underlying indices. Unlike many investment companies, the Funds are not “actively” managed. Therefore, they would not necessarily sell or buy a security unless that security is removed from or added to their underlying indices, respectively.
