First Asset Active Utility & Infrastructure ETF

Fund Overview

This actively managed ETF presents an attractive opportunity to earn stable income and participate in the build-out of North American energy infrastructure. Because the fund focuses on issuers that derive their revenue from the transportation of energy or the generation of power, it limits the volatility associated with more direct commodity exposure.

Sector Breakdown*

As at 29 September 2017
*As a percent of invested assets

The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns, including changes in unit value and do not take into account sales, redemption or optional charges or income taxes payable by a security holder that would have reduced returns. The Fund was originally launched as a TSX-listed closed-end fund on February 17, 2005, and converted into an exchange traded fund on January 16, 2015. Performance shown is since inception of the closed-end fund. In connection with the conversion, and pursuant to unitholder approval, the annual management fee payable by the Fund to First Asset, as manager, was reduced to 0.65% (from 1.05%) of the NAV per unit and certain changes were made to the investment objectives, strategies and restrictions applicable to the Fund. Material among these changes is the ability for the Fund to invest up to 30% of its portfolio in securities of issuers listed on non-Canadian stock exchanges and the Fund will no longer be permitted to use leverage. Had these changes been in effect prior to this date the performance of the Fund could have been different. On June 12, 2006, pursuant to unitholder approval, the Fund`s mandate was changed from that of an equally-weighted fund to that of an actively managed fund with a focus on the power, pipeline and supporting service and infrastructure trusts and the annual management fee payable by the Fund to First Asset, as manager, was increased to 0.75% (from 0.45%) of the NAV per unit. Had these changes been in effect prior to this date the performance of the Fund could have been different.


S&P/TSX Capped Utilities Index is a capitalization-weighted index designed to measure market activity of the utility sector issuers listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Index is used as a benchmark against the Fund`s performance since the Fund invests in a portfolio of securities of certain issuers that comprise the Index.
