Brooklyn Investment Group launches innovative American Depositary Receipts (ADR) index in partnership with Nasdaq

NEW YORK, November 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Brooklyn Investment Group, LLC in partnership with Nasdaq (Nasdaq: NDAQ), today announced the launch of the Nasdaq-Brooklyn ADR™ Index, designed specifically for direct indexing and tax loss harvesting strategies implemented in separately managed accounts ( SMA) to meet their greater liquidity requirements.

The index uses a liquidity-adjusted weighting methodology to reduce the index weights for American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) with liquidity below the market value of the underlying shares. ADRs allow investors to diversify into international stocks within the domestic US stock market.

The liquidity adjustment is important in the ADR market because the liquidity of a US-listed instrument should not be closely related to the market capitalization of the primary shares listed abroad. The correction could help reduce trading costs and index turnover. As a result, the Nasdaq-Brooklyn ADR™ provides investors with broad international exposure in a potentially more cost-effective manner.

“Together, Brooklyn Investment Group and Nasdaq are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the investment management industry,” said Antti Petagisto, head of equities at Brooklyn Investment Group. “Combining Nasdaq’s long-standing experience in the capital markets with of Brooklyn focusing on technological innovation in portfolio management will expand the set of tools available to investors. We are particularly excited to introduce the new concept of a liquidity adjustment factor and its potential to unlock significant trading cost savings, even for relatively passive investment strategies.”

“At the forefront of innovation, Nasdaq focuses on applying unique technologies to improve indexing,” said Cameron Lily, vice president and global head of index products and development at Nasdaq. “We are excited to partner with Brooklyn Investment Group to develop an indexing methodology that creates more opportunities for investors to gain differentiated market exposure.”

The Nasdaq-Brooklyn ADR™ Index is now included in Brooklyn Investment Group’s SMA platform and is available to financial advisory firms and asset managers through Nasdaq.
