First Asset Long Duration Fixed Income ETF

Investment Objectives

First Asset Long Duration Fixed Income ETF provides exposure to longer dated government bonds, with the higher level of income and lower correlation to equity markets that they provide. A well-known hedge against equity market dislocation, longer duration government fixed income securities can represent an important component in strategic and tactical asset allocation. Fixed income specialist portfolio manager, Kamyar Hazaveh of Signature Global Asset Management is the lead portfolio manager.

First Asset Long Duration Fixed Income ETF's investment objective is to provide unitholders with regular distributions and the opportunity for capital appreciation from the performance of a portfolio comprised primarily of longer dated developed markets, Canadian and U.S. government issued fixed income securities.
