This Week’s ETF Launches: T. Boone Pickens Gets Into the Oil (ETF) Business

With the ETF industry continuing to add hundreds of billions of dollars in new assets, a curious group is trying to get in on the action – celebrities.

Shark Tank bad guy Kevin O’Leary has been in the ETF game for nearly three years through his O’Shares brand of funds. Last year, Quincy Jones lent his name to an as-yet-to-be-launched ETF. This week, we get a new ETF from someone who is not so much a celebrity as he is a business legend.

Here are this week’s new fund launches:

Ticker Name Issuer Launch Date Category Expense Ratio
(VSL) Volshares Large Cap ETF Whitford Asset Management LLC 02/23/2018 Large Cap Blend Equities 0.65%
(BOON) NYSE Pickens Oil Response ETF BP Capital 02/28/2018 Energy Equities 0.85%
