Global X Funds is a New York-based provider of exchange-traded funds that facilitates access to investment opportunities across the global markets. Founded in 2008, it has more than $7.5 billion in managed ETF assets, across more than 50 different products. The ETF issuer and manager is widely known for its Income, Thematic and International product suites, in addition to its Core, Alpha and Risk Management strategies. On April 14, 2016 it was announced that J.P. Morgan Asset Management made a passive, minority investment in Global X.
Global X was established in 2008 by co-founders Bruno del Ama and Jose Gonzalez – a partnership that brought to market its first ETF in February 2009. The firm focused on previously unexplored ETF strategies in the subsequent years, launching a range of first-to-market single-country ETFs and commodity funds. In 2011, the firm introduced its first global dividend product, a strategy which it has subsequently adapted to U.S. equities, preferreds, REITs, emerging markets, alternatives, and most recently, EAFE equities.
Global X was also an early proponent of thematic investing, launching its first thematic ETF in 2010, targeting companies that offered exposure to the lithium cycle. The firm has since launched a range of additional strategies providing access to emerging themes in areas of technology, people and demographics, and values-based investing.
Global X notes prominently on its website that it maintains a focus of listening to clients and empowering them to invest wisely in unexplored and intelligent solutions. In early 2016, the firm began expanding the scope of its published research, which as of November 2017 includes monthly updates and quarterly deep-dives on Master Limited Partnerships, broad coverage of thematic investing, and recurring updates on dividend strategies, among other topics.
Global X Funds partners with the following service providers, among others:
