"Over the past two years we have seen a significant increase in the use of liquid alternatives in investors overall asset allocation. Our unique exemptive relief allows us to create inexpensive alternative ETFs to help investors decrease volatility in their portfolios and increase their risk adjusted returns.  We believe that the addition of two absolute return and four long-only factor based funds will position QuantShares as the leading provider of liquid alternative ETFs in the market and we look forward to the launching of these products in 2013," said DeRoche.

For more information on any QuantShares ETFs from FFCM, LLC please call Bill DeRoche at 617-292-9804 or visit www.quant-shares.com.
