Investment Case

  • Targeted Exposure to Travel & Leisure: We believe the hotel and lodging sector acts as an effective economic barometer as it uniquely captures both leisure and business spending across various income levels, while other travel sectors like airlines and cruise lines, can represent only a narrow segment of economic activity. The lodging ecosystem includes many specialized participants, and HOTL is a concentrated portfolio that seeks to provide access to leading global management teams in the hotel and lodging sector. Hotels are an integral part of the global travel and tourism industry as they are part infrastructure, part business, part consumer, and part necessity.
  • Early Stages of Recovery / Less Supply Risk: The HOTL sector is seeing favorable market conditions as business travel spending is set to increase over the next several years. Lodging demand upturns usually have two phases, first is recovering what was lost from the previous downturn, and then demand tends to reach new cyclical all-time highs. The supply of new rooms will probably remain muted for a few years, particularly in the upscale and luxury segments, where it can take several years between breaking ground and completion. This pattern indicates the potential for real secular growth for the lodging sector.
  • High Growth Potential: HOTL enables investors to access high growth potential through companies that in our opinion remain key pillars of economic growth, development, and infrastructure and are at the crossroads of longer-term positive secular tailwinds. Investors and individuals alike are increasingly interested in companies that provide experiences over companies that provide material goods.
  • Tool for Diversification: HOTL offers diversification due to little overlap with traditional indices and may be a cost effective way for investors to diversify their holdings. HOTL can serve as a complement to not only traditional real estate, but also growth strategies as lodging companies may offer similar benefits to growth equities. The HOTL sector also offers portfolio diversification with a low correlation to other equities and bonds.
  • Cost Effective: In a single trade, HOTL enables investors to access that we believe are positioned to benefit from transformative forces that are reshaping the travel and lodging industry. HOTL ETF is a diversified across dozens of Lodging companies with desirable locations in high barrier to entry markets. HOTL can be a lower cost alternative to non-traded REITs, mutual funds, and private equity funds in an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF).
