CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Amplify ETFs announces the conversion of the YieldShares High Income ETF (NYSE Arca: YYY) (the “Fund”) to the Amplify ETF Trust from the Exchange Traded Concepts Trust, effective Monday, October 7. Since 2016, Amplify ETFs has been servicing, marketing and supporting the product as a Sub-Adviser; Amplify is now Adviser to the Fund.

Additionally, the Fund’s new name is the Amplify High Income ETF. The Fund maintains the same ticker (YYY), investment objective, selection criteria, management fee and underlying index.

“Given the success of YYY, we are thrilled to have the Fund formally become a part of the Amplify ETF Trust,” explains 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.
