2 ETFs for Investors Seeking an Entrepreneurial Edge | ETF Trends

There has been a significant shift in how companies conduct business over the last year, with many corporations transitioning their employees to home as more stringent regulations become commonplace in the coronavirus era. With this shift comes a need for innovation, with companies like Ring, Crowdstrike, Tesla, and Fiverr embracing this entrepreneurial mindset. Investors looking to get in on the action can look to the issuer ERShares.

ERShares selects companies from all over the globe and across capitalization levels to create an eclectic and well-balanced mix in its funds.

“We invest in publicly traded entrepreneurial companies, and by this we mean it’s more than just, you know, Amazon or Netflix. There’s some high-profile companies that people kind nod their heads, like Telsa or whatever, they say those are entrepreneurial companies. But we’ve got hundreds around the world, large caps, small caps, throughout Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America,” says Joel Shulman, Founder and Managing Director of ERShares.

Currently, ER Shares has two main ETF offerings: the ERShares Entrepreneur 30 ETF (ENTR) and the ERShares Non-US Small Cap ETF (ERSX).
