A big-money new investment vehicle, the Pronto Financials ETF, is being offered to investors looking for a return.
Pronto Finance has raised $40 million from several leading fund managers in the technology and finance space.
Investors in the ETF are given a 10% discount on the underlying ETF, a 30-day tax-free rollover option and the ability to convert it into an asset in Pronto’s own name.
Prontos ETF has two primary components: a fund of stocks and bonds and an ETF of ETFs that includes ETFs of Pronto stocks.

Pronos’ initial public offering will offer investors the ability, among other things, to purchase shares of Prongos or Pronto securities, convert them into Pronto assets and transfer them to Pronto-owned accounts.
Pronto will also pay for Pronto employees to participate in Prontosphere’s new fund.
The ETFs are expected to offer investors a mix of options and options to invest in Pronotos stocks.
