Dent Tactical ETF Throws in the Towel | ETF Trends

An active exchange traded fund managed by HS Dent Investment Management is merging into another fund after the ETF failed to attract significant assets.

AdvisorShares said AdvisorShares Dent Tactical ETF (NYSEArca: DENT) will be reorganized into the AdvisorShares Meidell Tactical Advantage ETF (NYSEArca: MATH).

DENT had less than $10 million in assets and was launched in 2009. Its portfolio management team will resign, according to a press release.

DENT was down 15.7% for the year ended May 21, according to Morningstar.
