Investment Strategy. The VegTech™ Plant-based Innovation & Climate ETF (Ticker: EATV) is an actively managed fund designed to offer investors exposure to the growing plant-based foods and materials trend through VegTech™ Companies. The VegTech™ ETF is a pure-play in plant-based innovation and we believe the only fund offering global exposure dedicated to this emerging sector.
EATV MAY PROVIDE EXPOSURE TO:
- Plant-based food and ingredient companies behind popular products such as the Beyond burger.
- Plant-based materials companies producing animal-free squalene and animal-free collagen for cosmetics.
- Plant-based agriculture technology companies that grow more plants in less space through indoor vertical farming, no manure, and robotics.
- Alternative protein companies capable of transforming plant-based carbohydrates and other ingredients into proteins, using precision fermentation, cell-based agriculture, and advanced technologies.
These types of companies make animal-free primary products through unique innovation and technology utilizing plants or plant-derived products. Further, these companies work towards a more efficient, climate-friendly, and sustainable food and materials supply system. We believe this sector will likely experience significant growth as part of a large-scale secular trend. We call these VegTech™ Companies.

Reasons to invest in VegTechTM
Invest For Impact & Climate Change
Animal agriculture is responsible for 14.5% of greenhouse gas emissions, including methane and nitrous oxide.1 We invest in companies innovating with plants and plant-derived ingredients to make animal free products, thus helping to address climate change. We believe we won’t fix climate change without fixing our current food and materials supply system.
Invest For Efficiency & Sustainability
Our current food supply system is inefficient and unsustainable. It is a major source of deforestation,2 using disproportionate amounts of water and land such that creating enough food for a growing global population won’t be feasible with our current resources. We invest in plant-based innovation companies, including alt material and alt protein companies, which are less resource intensive, producing prolifc and nutritious food with less land and water. We are at the tip of what we believe is a long-term secular trend shifting towards plant-based innovation.
Invest For Disruption
As we enter the fourth industrial revolution, the food and materials supply systems are on the precipice of a global shift. We are investing in the game changers, disruptors and trend-makers with the vision and technology to create a future in which health and food security are sustainable. Through investing, we are helping to shape a healthier, more environmentally friendly and cruelty-free food supply system, driven by the demand of Gen X and Gen Z.3
VegTech™ is the technology and innovation that utilizes at least one plant ingredient to create a more efficient, animal-free food and materials supply system: part of a global, secular trend.
We believe that the global supply system is on the cusp of a shift that will revolutionize how we produce foods and materials. This secular trend is driven by the need to produce food and materials more efficiently and with a reduced environmental impact.
Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the negative impact that traditional agriculture, food, and materials production have on the environment, their health and animal welfare. They want to buy products that address these concerns.
The VegTech™ EATV fund is actively managed and a pure-play in plant-based innovation companies and the companies that support them.
We are an actively managed fund covering a dynamic market and a dynamic industry. We spend a considerable amount of time investigating, researching, evaluating, and vetting the companies that are part of the fund to ensure that they qualify for inclusion.
The fund’s fees are in line with thematic funds and naturally higher than typical index funds that simply follow a published index.
The strategy of the fund is to invest in companies that are actively innovating with plants and plant-derived ingredients in the global supply chain, and that produce primary products that are animal-free. These companies positively impact planetary, human, and animal health.
VegTech™ Invest Management Advisory focuses on companies they believe will be the leaders, enablers, disrupters and beneficiaries of a global shifting food and materials supply system towards plant-based innovation. They believe this is a long-term, secular trend.
