NEW YORK, NY – August 27, 2020 – SoFi announced today that its SoFi Gig Economy ETF (GIGE) reached a new 52-week high on August 26, 2020, closing at a price of $28.09. As of yesterday’s close, GIGE has more than doubled (101.8%) off its 52-week low of $13.92 on March 16th. GIGE is in the top 30 of best-performing equity ETFs in the U.S. this year (out of 1,482, not including leveraged funds). As of the most recent quarter end on 6/30/2020, GIGE was up 19.71% year-over-year and 16.44% since its inception May 8, 2019.
“In today’s world, it’s not just work-from-home, it’s also work-from-anywhere, and the technology companies behind this revolutionary shift are some of the few bright spots in this economy,” said SoFi CEO Anthony Noto. “GIGE has been able to capture these new trends and provide investors with diversified exposure to this exciting theme.”
GIGE seeks to provide exposure to technology companies in the gig economy. Top holdings include payment companies such as PayPal (PYPL) and Square (SQ), tech platforms such as Fiverr (FIVR) and Upwork (UPWK), and e-commerce firms such as Pinduoduo (PDD) and Mercadolibre (MELI).

There is no guarantee that the Fund’s investment strategy will be successful. Shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV in the secondary market. These variations may be greater when markets are volatile or subject to unusual conditions. A high portfolio turnover rate increases transaction costs, which may increase the Fund’s expenses. The Fund is new and has a limited operating history. You can lose money on your investment in the Fund. Diversification does not ensure profit or protect against loss in declining markets. Investments in foreign securities may involve risks such as social and political instability, market illiquidity, exchange-rate fluctuations, a high level of volatility and limited regulation. Investing in emerging markets involves different and greater risks, as these countries are substantially smaller, less liquid and more volatile than securities markets in more developed markets. Because the Fund may invest in a single sector, country or industry, its shares do not represent a complete investment program. As a non-diversified fund, the value of the shares may fluctuate more than shares invested in a broader range of industries and companies because of concentration in a specific sector, country or industry.
Since the Fund is actively managed it does not seek to replicate the performance of a specified index. The Fund may frequently trade all or a significant portion of its portfolio; and have higher portfolio turnover than funds that do seek to replicate the performance of an index.
