Today Kate sits down with repeat guest Andrew Chanin, Co-Founder and CEO of ETF manager ProcureAM. Andrew shares the story behind the launch of the Procure Disaster Recovery Strategy ETF (FEMA).

In this episode, Kate and Andrew discuss:

-The Procure Disaster Recovery Strategy ETF (FEMA), which seeks opportunities among companies engaged in recovering from natural disasters, such as hurricanes, fires, floods or earthquakes

-Why Andrew believes it’s important for investors to have exposure to this potentially growing category

-How the VettaFi Natural Disaster Response and Mitigation Index was developed

-Which diverse group of industries constitutes the index components

-How Andrew is bringing overseas companies, that may be difficult to access, to investors as part of the basket of stocks

-What little-known domestic stocks are tracked in the portfolio?

-Why the ETF is equal-weighted, rather than being market-cap weighted, like the S&P 500
