The firm listed 2 US equity ETFs on the NYSE Arca: NightShares 500 ETF (ticker NSPY) and the NightShares 2000 (NIWM). These ETFs seek to capture value from the “Night Effect,” a persistent phenomenon whereby overnight markets have historically outperformed the daytime trading session on a risk-adjusted basis.

The Night Effect is not unique to the US equity market with overnight returns having been shown to beat intraday returns in at least 23 different countries, highlighting the potential for the firm to further expand its product suite.
