Engine No. 1 Launches Transform Supply Chain ETF (Ticker: SUPP) to Give Investors the Opportunity to Invest in America’s Competitiveness and Relocalization of Supply Chains

ETF invests in companies focused on relocalization of jobs and supply chains, increased automation, and transportation efficiency, offering investors exposure to a true paradigm shift

Today, Engine No. 1 announced the launch of its second actively-managed ETF, the Engine No. 1 Transform Supply Chain ETF (Ticker: SUPP). SUPP, the latest in Engine No. 1’s line of thematic ETFs, invests in companies that will drive supply chain resiliency and long-term value creation through relocalization of manufacturing, automation and innovation, and transportation and logistics management. SUPP lets investors participate in this large-scale transformation and benefit from Engine No. 1’s distinct approach to and perspective on it.

Eli Horton, who recently joined Engine No. 1’s investment team from Maverick Capital, will serve as the fund’s lead portfolio manager. While at Maverick, he invested in a broad range of industries, including industrials, for its hedge fund. He brings deep fundamental expertise to expand Engine No. 1’s capability to offer alternative asset management experience to the ETF market.

“It has never been more important for companies to make their supply chains more resilient, while also relocalizing manufacturing and jobs to North America,” said Horton. “We will invest in the companies that will drive and benefit from the ongoing supply chain transformation – creating long-term economic value and meaningful social and environmental impacts.”

“We believe the entire supply chain system is changing and that transformation presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity for investors,” said Yasmin Dahya Bilger, Head of ETFs at Engine No. 1. “We’re building a portfolio that capitalizes on the transition from old technologies to new ones, from short-term expediency to long-term value creation, and away from the low-cost-at-all costs thinking of the last 30 years towards a more resilient and modern American economy that is a leader in global competitiveness and that creates well-paying jobs here at home.”

We believe that companies that lead during this transition will benefit from increased market share, higher perceived quality of goods, and dynamic cost management, resulting in increased shareholder value. The $3.5 trillion in global income eliminated by disruptions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic further demonstrated the need for companies to rethink their supply chains.1 Additionally, U.S. companies were on a record pace to relocalize 350,000 jobs in 2022.2 Bringing manufacturing, transportation, and warehousing jobs to the U.S. creates a 5.1x employment multiplier.3 This shift in corporate priorities also benefits ongoing energy transition initiatives.

The ETF has a fee of 0.75% and will be managed by Eli Horton with assistance from Molly Landes and Christopher James. To learn more about Engine No. 1 Supply Chain ETF (Ticker: SUPP), visit.
