The Innovation α® Global ETF

About INAG

  • Access large- and mid-cap companies in developed markets whose valuable innovations and intangible assets offer a competitive advantage.
  • The index that INAG seeks to track is powered by Innovation α®—the same algorithm behind the CNBC IQ 100—which is designed to measure the relative competitive value of intellectual property and intangible assets.

The INAG strategy allows investors to participate in a large- and mid-cap developed market equities strategy based on the quality of innovation developed and used by companies. Using Innovation α®, a proprietary unstructured data analysis algorithm, INAG’s index seeks to measure the absolute quantitative intangible asset position of companies similar to those in the MSCI World Index within both the supply chain and distribution competitive space, then selects the company holding the better asset portfolio. The underlying principle of the strategy is to seek those companies optimized for marginal revenue control through high-quality intangible assets.

The INAG’s index strategy was modeled by Dr. David Martin and relies exclusively on public information. The model from which the strategy was derived is based on historical innovation and market data collected and analyzed by M•CAM® since 1998.

The MSCI World Index seeks to capture all sources of equity returns in 23 developed and 24 emerging markets around the world.

Powered by Innovation α®

M•CAM® has measured the “creditworthiness” of Intellectual Property (IP) and Intangible Assets (IA) for nearly two decades through numerous boom and bust cycles. Simply put, this means that we examine the actual assets – contracts, patents, licenses, copyrights, designs, trademarks, permits, etc. – held by firms; compare them qualitatively to the equivalent rights held by other firms; and, characterize the economic consequence of these assets on the underlying enterprise. To do this, we maintain a proprietary repository of state-granted rights from over 160 countries representing, in some instances, over 200 years of historical data. Using our internationally recognized, unrivaled unstructured text linguistic genomic algorithms, we measure the quality of these rights and associate them with business transactions reported in financial statements, contracts, bid proposals, trade records and other publicly available (but hard to find) data.

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance current to the most recent month-end can be obtained by calling +1 434 979 7240.

Short term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund's future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns.
