LARE ETF-About Us About Us

Tierra Funds

Tierra Funds LLC is an exchange traded product (ETP) sponsor focused on balancing income and growth. The firm seeks to expand access to unique investment strategies through ETFs and other listed products.

Tierra Funds believes the current and projected global macro environment presents specific medium and long term challenges to the investor and which may be addressed in part by seeking to balance both income and growth across a variety of asset classes, investment strategies and investment vehicles.

In 2014, Tierra Funds partnered with the International Securities Exchange (ISE) to develop ETF solutions with a focus on the increasingly integrated Americas capital markets. Our first product – Tierra XP Latin America Real Estate ETF – is focused on both the US investor as well as regional investors in Latin America who seek a diversified, transparent alternative to gaining exposure to the region’s expanding real estate markets.
