Blue Ocean Alpha Revolutionizes ETF Portfolio Outsourcing

OAK BROOK, IL--(Marketwire - February 3, 2010) - ETF Portfolio Partners, WallachBeth Capital and Millennium Trust Company announce Blue Ocean Alpha, an innovative solution for Investment Advisors that offers sub-advisory ETF portfolio management, omnibus trading and custody for accounts of all sizes.

"Blue Ocean Alpha is the first solution of its kind that seamlessly combines all of the key elements for alpha creation, relying on the expertise of three leading ETF service companies: ETF Portfolio Partners, WallachBeth Capital and Millennium Trust, to provide Advisors with a comprehensive ETF solution," said John Balevic, senior vice president of Millennium Trust.

"There is a powerful trend emerging where Advisors are increasingly seeking to use ETFs in client portfolios. Blue Ocean Alpha offers an outsourced, turnkey approach that allows Advisors to focus their time and efforts on growing their businesses while still controlling the existing client relationships," said Richard Romey, president of ETF Portfolio Partners.

Delivering proven, consistent and professional ETF portfolio management, along with exceptional trading execution with minimal transaction costs, regardless of account size, Blue Ocean Alpha allows any Investment Advisor to offer their clients a superior ETF-based portfolio.

In a 2008 State Street Global Advisors survey of investment professionals, 60% reported that ETFs have fundamentally changed the way they construct investment portfolios. Sixty-seven percent called ETFs the most innovative vehicle of the last two decades. With 800 ETFs and assets over $1 trillion, these "modern day mutual funds" account for over 30% of all equity trading volume on domestic exchanges. Providing access to virtually every segment of the global capital market, ETF assets are expected to grow dramatically over the next decade. Blue Ocean Alpha streamlines any Advisor's entrance into this expanding marketplace.
