TrimTabs Asset Management relaunches as ‘FCF Advisors’

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FCF Advisors (FCF = Free Cash Flow) is the new name of TrimTabs Asset Management, a 2011 spin-off of TrimTabs Investment Research. The new name comes with a new branding and two new websites: for our advisory and index business, and for our internal ETFs and those we under -advise.

TrimTabs is a household name on Wall Street – primarily for equity liquidity research – but, over the past decade, TrimTabs Asset Management’s mission has been to refine the analytical power of free cash flow factors. to better identify quality companies.

Ten years ago, when we first saw the potential of this approach, marketing and branding were the last things on our minds. We had a singular goal: deep research into how free cash flow data rather than company earnings could inform a better quality model. The factors in this model combine to identify companies that are currently showing strong business performance, as well as those that have the best chance of beating the market over the entire economic cycle.

This approach has little to do with share buybacks or other elements of stock liquidity. Instead, everything we do comes from free cash flow analysis.

This made changing the name to FCF Advisors an obvious decision.

Bob Shea, CEO and Chief Investment Officer comments:

“Our free cash flow quality model is simply a better predictive tool for quality investors. By moving beyond the uncertainty of corporate earnings data, we have provided a more reliable indicator of current quality. After all, if you can’t trust your inputs, how can you trust the results?

Additionally, the model demonstrated superior predictive power for outperformance over the cycle, and strong correlation with ESG and sustainability scores: Morningstar rates our two quality ETFs a maximum of five out of five for sustainability, placing the FCF US Quality ETF (TTAC) and FCF International Quality ETF (TTAI) in the top 10% of all global funds.

There are several ways to take advantage of our free cash flow quality model:

  1. choose from a range of ETFs (TTAC, TTAI, DFNV, DFRA and DFHY)

  2. invest in underlying names through separately managed accounts

  3. integrate the outputs of our model through more than 50 fully customizable indices
