REX Shares Expands its Relationship With Bank of Montreal by Adding Dorsey Wright MLP Index Exchange

NEW YORK, June 19, 2019 — REX Shares, LLC (REX) has expanded their relationship with Bank of Montreal with the addition of the Dorsey Wright MLP Index Exchange Traded Notes (the ETNs) to their product offerings. The ETNs are linked to the DWA MLP Select™ Index (the Index) and issued by Bank of Montreal.

This product further compliments the REX brand, which launched MicroSectors ETNs in January 2018 with FANG+ linked ETNs, and expanded to include U.S. Big Banks and U.S. Big Oil linked ETNs in 2019.  The Dorsey Wright MLP Index ETNs are trading on Nasdaq under the symbol BMLP.

The DWA MLP Select™ Index is composed of publicly traded master limited partnerships (MLPs) that are selected based on the Dorsey Wright Relative Strength Ranking Methodology. Relative strength measures how one security is performing in relation to another in an effort to identify which security is outperforming the other. On a monthly basis, the Index rebalances the equally-weighted basket by selecting the 15 MLPs exhibiting the largest positive relative strength characteristics.

REX, a provider of alternative investment products, sees demand for MLP exchange traded products. “We are excited to begin marketing BMLP. We believe in the Dorsey Wright index methodology for the MLP space and feel the ETN vehicle for MLP’s index investing is the preferred route for investors to avoid K-1 forms” said Scott Acheychek, President of REX. “Since the ETNs were launched on December 19, 2016, the Dorsey Wright Index has outperformed the popular benchmark Alerian MLP indices. We are thrilled to add this to our lineup.”

Please reach out with any questions.
