Amplify ETFs is expanding its lineup of funds meant to provide downside protection against market crashes while gathering partial returns of a major index, this time following the Nasdaq-100.

The Amplify BlackSwan Tech & Treasury ETF (QSWN) debuted on the NYSE Arca on Thursday with an expense ratio of 0.49%.

The fund follows an index that holds approximately 90% of its assets in Treasurys ranging in maturity from two years to 30 years with the goal of matching the initial duration of a 10-year Treasury note.

QSWN follows the Amplify BlackSwan Growth & Treasury Core ETF (SWAN) launched in 2018, and the Amplify BlackSwan ISWN ETF (ISWN) launched in January, which respectively apply the same strategy of holding Treasurys and long-dated options on equity ETFs.

SWAN and ISWN hold a combined $976 million in assets under management.

Amplify CEO Christian Magoon said the Nasdaq-100 is increasingly popular as a large cap growth allocation in portfolios. That gives reason for a hedged exposure to be available for investors, especially as interest rate hikes next year threaten to damper sky-high valuations.

“The strong recent return set, concentration of the index and the markedly high PE’s of the companies in this index are certainly legitimate investor concerns,” he said.
