BETHESDA, Md., June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AdvisorShares, a leading sponsor of actively managed exchange-traded funds (ETFs), announced today plans to propose a sub-advisor change for the AdvisorShares Cambria Global Tactical ETF (NYSE Arca: GTAA) for the approval of the AdvisorShares Trust's Board of Trustees. Chapel Hill, North Carolina-based Morgan Creek Capital Management would serve as GTAA's new sub-advisor with its CEO Mark W. Yusko as portfolio manager. Pending the Board's approval, the sub-advisor change would then be subject to shareholder approval.
"After a diligent review and careful consideration, we have decided to propose a change of GTAA's sub-advisor," said Noah Hamman, CEO of AdvisorShares. "At the end of the day, our sole focus remains our shareholders' best interests and we firmly believe Morgan Creek with Mark Yusko as portfolio manager would serve GTAA very well. We would gladly welcome the institutional expertise and extensive university endowment experience that the Morgan Creek team could deliver in their global tactical asset allocation investment approach to our actively managed ETF suite. Furthermore, we thank Cambria's Meb Faber and Eric Richardson for their portfolio management and commitment to GTAA throughout our partnership."
