“Given the success of YYY, we are thrilled to have the Fund formally become a part of the Amplify ETF Trust,” says Christian Magoon, CEO and founder of Amplify ETFs, and founder of YieldShares LLC. “As an income-oriented product, YYY is a great complement to our thematic ETF lineup. This move is a seamless transition for clients and we look forward to continuing to provide the value that YYY has delivered to shareholders over the years.”
