First Asset Energy Giants Covered Call ETF (CAD Hedged)

Investment Objectives

The Fund's investment objective is to provide holders, through an actively managed portfolio, with (i) quarterly cash distributions, (ii) the opportunity for capital appreciation by investing on an equal weight basis in a portfolio of equity securities of the 15 largest non-Canadian issuers classified within either the "Integrated Oil & Gas" or "Oil & Gas Exploration & Production" Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) sub-industry groups, or otherwise determined by the Manager to derive their revenue primarily from the exploration for and production of oil and natural gas ("Energy Companies") measured by US$ market capitalization with common stock or ADRs listed on a Canadian or U.S. stock exchange, and (iii) lower overall volatility of returns on the portfolio than would be experienced by owning a portfolio of securities of such issuers directly.

It is intended that at all times at least 90% of the value of the foreign currency exposure attributable to the Units will be hedged back to the Canadian dollar.
