The New “Clean Ocean” ETF

In mid-September, Rockefeller Asset Management, the asset management arm of Rockefeller Capital Management, and KraneShares, a leading global ETF provider specializing in China, climate, and uncorrelated assets, launched the KraneShares Rockefeller Ocean Engagement ETF (ticker: KSEA). The fund invests in public companies with significant impact on oceans and ocean resources, reflecting the meaningful investment opportunities within the blue economy.

KSEA aims to generate competitive returns and improve ocean health through shareholder engagement activity focused on pollution prevention, carbon transition, and ocean conservation. Holdings include companies from diverse sectors such as aquaculture, commercial fishing, waste management, renewable energy, and logistics, among others.

My guest, Casey Clark, will discuss this new ETF.


The Advantages of Free-Cash Flow in Portfolio Construction

Free-cash-flow yield is the surplus cash after expenses and investments divided by the price of the security. Free-cashflow yield has been used for a long time by active hedge funds. Now it has become part of the indexing landscape, competing for assets with other quantitative approaches. It has historically outperformed in markets that favored value stocks and shown resilience in growth markets. My guest today will explain why, in today's intangible asset-driven economy, traditional metrics like price to earnings and price to book face challenges, making free cash flow a more relevant valuation metric. We will discuss how advisors should think about free cash flow and the steps VictoryShares & Solutions has taken to enhance traditional approaches.

All investments involve some degree of risk.
