Innovator ETFs: About our team

Our goal is to bring revolutionary exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that change the investing landscape and bring more certainty to the financial planning process. We accomplish this through:

Innovation

We are passionate about moving the world forward in the way it manages money, risk, and retirement. To this end, we are committed to providing investors with innovative products they never considered or thought possible.

Disruption

Innovator is leading the Defined Outcome ETF Revolution™, through its Defined Outcome ETFs™ —the world’s first and largest ETF family that seeks to provide defined exposures to broad markets; a concept that has formerly been confined to the multi-trillion dollar annuity and structured products markets.

Relentless Simplification

We believe the investment product world has become convoluted and complex. The inner workings of a product may be intricately woven, but the way it is delivered must be relentlessly simple.
