Cultivar is the soil that grows your passive investment strategy into an ETF through the revolutionary ACES conversion process. 

Everything is Coming Up ACES

Want to launch an ETF but seed capital, start-up costs, and high break-even levels are holding you back? Then perhaps the revolutionary and disruptive ACES ETF incubator is the answer.

ACEShares™ (“ACES”) is a structure that allows for the incubation of ETFs. ACES are index-tracking investment products that lower start-up costs, seed capital requirements, and break-even economics in comparison to launching and operating a traditional ETF.

The ACES process begins as a dynamic index-tracking fund with end-of-day pricing at net asset value.

When the ACES fund hits a predetermined asset level and/or time period, it automatically converts into a traditional
index-tracking ETF.

You now have an ETF at a fraction of traditional start-up costs.
