RBB’s Advisor ‘Stance Equity ESG Large Cap Core ETF’ Nominated Newcomer/ESG ETF of the Year

The RBB Fund, Inc, a pioneer of the independent series trust, is proud to announce that one of its newest advisors, Stance Capital, and its Stance Equity ESG Large Cap Core ETF (NYSE: STNC) was recently shortlisted for Newcomer/ESG Impact ETF of the Year award by Fund Intelligence’s Mutual Fund Industry and ETF Awards. But ESG investing is nothing new for Stance Capital, whose track record dates to 2014.

“Stance Capital has dispelled the notion that investing in companies with strong ESG indicators will lead to underperformance,” said Arnold Richman, Chairman of RBB. “We expected big things from Bill Davis and his team, and once again they have come through.”

Founded by Bill Davis, Stance Capital offers a differentiated approach to ESG investing. Its active, semi-concentrated strategy, with a proprietary machine learning model and risk optimization overlay, was previously only available in separately managed accounts and through model delivery.

By partnering with RBB, Stance converted certain of its separately managed accounts (SMA) into the Stance Equity ESG Large Cap Core ETF (NYSE: STNC), thus offering their strategy to a wider investor base at a more affordable cost. Additionally, the transition remains one of the first SMA to ETF conversions in the investment community.

“RBB’s leadership and knowledge with the conversion, combined with its overall platform has allowed us to focus on managing our portfolio without having to give a second thought to operations,” said Bill Davis, founder and portfolio manager at Stance Capital. “We believe that with proper portfolio construction, values alignment will prove to be a free option for investors. RBB gives us the opportunity to focus on the portfolio and our shareholders.”
