Trimtabs brings together free cash flow-centric investing with low management fees


When it comes to investing, we’re always looking for high-performing, quality companies. It’s become notoriously difficult to parse corporate earnings reports, attempting to make sense of balance sheets and income statements, which can be subject to financial engineering. This is why we focus on one of the most important and reliable financial metrics there is: free cash flow.



Performance may sometimes come at a premium, but at TrimTabs, it is our firm belief that investors should be able to access alpha-oriented strategies that aim to outperform the broad market without paying high management fees.


“TTAC—The TrimTabs Float Shrink ETF—embodies our firm’s core investment philosophies: that free cash flow is paramount in identifying quality companies, and that share reductions (float shrink) financed with cash translate into a greater piece of that quality pie.”

Ted Theodore

Vice Chairman & Chief Investment Officer
