A Conversation With Global X’s Director Of Research, Jay Jacobs

During the past month, I had the opportunity to speak with Jay Jacobs. He's the Director of Research at Global X, the New York-based ETF sponsor that oversees nearly 50 different ETFs and manages over $3 billion in assets.


While the company may be best known for its SuperDividend ETF (NYSEARCA:SDIV) and SuperDividend U.S. ETF (NYSEARCA:DIV) and the combined $1 billion in assets between them, Global X offers funds that provide investment exposure to areas such as energy, MLPs, social media, gold, silver, uranium, copper, Greece, China and Japan. More recently, Global X has joined in on the smart beta trend and now offers a total of four smart beta (or scientific beta) funds.
