KKM Financial, LLC today announced the transition in their UIT partnership from Incapital, LLC to Nuveen Investments with the completion of Nuveen Investments’ acquisition of Incapital’s UIT platform on April 30, 2016. The partnership between KKM Financial and Nuveen Investments broadens distribution for KKM with a first-in-class partner firm such as Nuveen Investments.
"We are excited to have such a distinct distribution partner as Nuveen Investments to provide distribution of the innovative Heat Seeker® methodology and investment expertise of Jon and Pete Najarian to advisors and their clients," said Jeff Kilburg, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of KKM Financial. "Nuveen's highly-regarded platform and nationwide advisor relationship network offer a unique fit for us."
The Incapital Najarian Heat Seeker UIT portfolio, that KKM Financial has served as the portfolio consultant since 2015, will transition in name into the Nuveen Najarian Heat Seeker UIT portfolio later in the second quarter of 2016. The 15-month unit investment trust portfolio is based on a proprietary algorithm, the Heat Seeker®, developed by Jon and Pete Najarian. The Heat Seeker portfolio aims to provide capital appreciation through common stocks. At the core of KKM Financial’s stringent security selection process is the Heat Seeker® methodology, which seeks to identify long-term unusual trading activity that may illuminate the footprints of long-term equity positions taken by large institutional investors.
“The Heat Seeker® analyzes where large traders such as hedge funds, activists and leveraged buyout firms may be establishing or building long positions.” said Jon and Pete Najarian when asked about the ability of options to assist in a stock portfolio construction.
Commenting on the portfolio, John Browning, Managing Director of Nuveen Unit Trusts, said, "Nuveen is pleased to employ the investment expertise of KKM Financial within the Heat Seeker Portfolio. Uniquely designed to identify companies whose business models and overall market position offer potential competitive advantages, this portfolio provides investors access to distinct investment expertise as they look to build diversified investment portfolios."
