Amplify ETFs Completes Acquisition to Reach $9.1 Billion AUM Across 31 ETFs

CHICAGO, Jan. 29, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amplify ETFs announced today it has completed its previously announced acquisition of ETF Managers Group (ETFMG) exchange-traded fund (ETF) assets, which consist of over $3.7 billion of assets under management (AUM) across 14 ETFs (as of 1/26/2024). Amplify ETFs will now manage $9.1 billion of AUM as of 1/26/2024.

“The completion of Amplify’s first sizable ETF acquisition begins an exciting new chapter for our organization,” said Christian Magoon, CEO of Amplify ETFs. “Since 2016, Amplify has sought to develop innovative products that provide professionally crafted access to unique market segments and investment strategies. The addition of these ETFs is an extension of our existing product development mandate and allows Amplify to significantly grow its unique investor solution set.”

Magoon added, “We envision a brighter future for the acquired ETFs as they both complement our existing product lineup and will experience increased awareness and availability due to our current momentum across national accounts, distribution, and marketing. We look forward to engaging with investors on these timely market segments and themes.”

Amplify ETFs finished 2023 at a record high ETF AUM and shares outstanding. Amplify ETFs grew its AUM by 36% on the year, outpacing the overall US ETF industry’s growth rate of 26%. The completion of this acquisition positions Amplify in the top 13% of ETF sponsors.*

“While working through the transaction this past year, we remained committed to our overall mission of adding value to investor portfolios,” said William Belden, President of Amplify ETFs. “We launched three new ETFs in areas of the market that were untouched or open for enhancement.”

Effective as of the close of business on January 26, the following ETFMG ETFs have been reorganized into corresponding newly created exchange-traded funds of Amplify ETFs.
