In a pair of recent filings, Elkhorn has detailed plans to introduce two ETFs to its lineup that will complement the Elkhorn Lunt Low Vol/High Beta Tactical ETF (LVHB). The Elkhorn Lunt SmallCap Low Vol/High Beta ETF and the Elkhorn Lunt MidCap Low Vol/High Beta ETF will target the small-cap and midcap spaces, respectively.

Both funds, like LVHB, will list on the Bats Exchange, which owns ETF.com.

The two funds track 100-stock high-beta and low-volatility indexes derived from the S&P SmallCap 600 Index and the S&P MidCap 400 Index. The two funds will switch between the high-beta and low-volatility subindexes based on Lunt’s relative-strength methodology, with evaluations occurring on a monthly basis.

LVHB rolled out in October and has some $85 million in assets under management. The original fund in the series targets the large-cap space and switches between subindexes of the S&P 500 Index.

The filings did not include tickers or expense ratios.
