Blueprint Investment Partners, an asset manager and pioneer in the creation of systematic, process-driven, and transparent investment strategies for financial advisors, announced today a new partnership with ClearShares, a provider of innovative exchange traded fund (ETF) solutions. Effective October 1, Blueprint Investment Partners is now the sub-adviser for ClearShares’ longest-running ETF.

“Entering the ETF space was always part of the strategic vision for our firm because we can’t be an uncommonly great partner to financial advisors unless our investment strategies are available as highly accessible, liquid vehicles,” says Blueprint Investment Partners CEO and Co-Founder Jon Robinson. “Within the ETF space, ClearShares offers an innovative, quality platform. There was also a natural alignment between the cultures of our two firms.”

This news comes in the wake of several other strategic initiatives, including the launch of a mutual fund in 2020. The firm’s continued growth also prompted two recent Leadership Team hirings: Kenneth Peters, CAIA, to fortify portfolio management and trading functions, and Nicole Hands to direct brand positioning and marketing strategy while also supporting financial advisor clients with their marketing-related practice management.

“Our firm is built on being an uncommonly great partner to financial advisors, with the cornerstones being a first-rate investment process, investment strategies that are highly accessible, and a team of experts,” Jon adds. “Our partnership with ClearShares makes a positive impact by broadening our product offering and allowing us to meet clients where they are.”
