Finding the Insider Advantage with SURE
Email not displaying correctly?
Corporate insider buying and share buyback programs can demonstrate that top managers and executives at a company ("corporate insiders") see relative value in their firm’s stock.
Additionally, these actions ;may create favorable shareholder market conditions through the reduction of publicly available shares ("float shrink").
Buybacks have almost tripled in value (+182%) over the last decade. In comparison, dividends have only increased 54% over the same period.*
Companies in the S&P 500 had $390 billion worth of buybacks during the first half of 2023.**
Market conditions – rather than the 1% corporate excise tax on net buybacks – are attributed for the current slowdown in buybacks.  
Investing in companies experiencing heavy insider buying or sponsoring share buybacks may be a way to add undervalued stocks to a portfolio.
However, it is important to make certain these actions are truly shareholder friendly and not used to mask poor company fundamentals or influence earnings.
  AdvisorShares Insiders Advantage ETF | SURE Learn More >
The AdvisorShares Insider Advantage ETF (SURE) seeks to invest in the equities of companies reducing their public equity float through well-executed stock buyback programs and corporate insider buying.   
When selecting stocks, SURE employs a comprehensive, multi-factor process to target companies reducing their float prudently; demonstrating profitability; not increasing leverage; and paying dividends.
  Why Invest in SURE? 
Investing with Corporate Insiders – Buyback programs or insider buying can be a bullish signal that the stock is underpriced by the market.
Conscientious Float Reduction – Investing solely in stock buybacks can be problematic. SURE seeks firms reducing their float in a well-implemented manner.
Disciplined Growth – A quantitative, actively managed, equal weight investment strategy focused on long-term growth.
Active Management – As market conditions tighten and corporate buybacks slow, an active and ongoing investment strategy may help make the difference.

On September 1, 2022, the AdvisorShares Doubleline Value Equity ETF (the "Predecessor Fund') was renamed the AdvisorShares Insider Advantage ETF. The Predecessor Fund had different portfolio managers and investment strategy than the AdvisorShares Insider Advantage ETF.
A buyback occurs when a company repurchases its own shares from the marketplace, reducing the number of shares outstanding.
Insider buying is the legal purchase of shares in a firm by a corporate insider that is not based on non-public, material information and follows the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and reporting requirements.

Before investing you should carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. This and other information is in the prospectus or summary prospectus, a copy of which may be obtained by visiting the Fund’s website at Please read the prospectus carefully before you invest. Foreside Fund Services, LLC, distributor.
The Fund’s investment focus follows a core philosophy that corporate insiders know their companies best.  The Advisor believes that insider buying and stock buyback programs not only show that corporate insiders see relative value in investing in their own company’s equity securities, but also create favorable market conditions by reducing public equity float (i.e., the share supply available to investors on the public secondary market).  The Advisor allocates the Fund’s portfolio using research from a disciplined and quantitative proprietary model, the U.S. Insiders Edge Model, developed by Qubed Capital, LLC. In utilizing the model, the Advisor seeks to remove emotion from day-to-day decision-making by following a systematic process.
The Fund is an actively-managed exchange-traded fund (“ETF”) that seeks to achieve its investment objective by primarily investing in a portfolio of U.S. traded companies selected from a universe of the largest 3,000 U.S. equity securities based on market capitalization. When models and data prove to be incorrect or incomplete, any decisions made in reliance thereon expose the Fund to potential risks. In addition, the use of predictive models has inherent risk.
