Investment Objectives

The Fund has been designed to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of a Canadian short term government bond index, currently the FTSE TMX Canada Short Term Government Bond Index (the "Index"), net of expenses.

The investment strategy of the Fund is to invest in and hold the Constituent Securities of the Index in substantially the same proportion as they are reflected in the Index. The First Asset ETF may use a sampling strategy to achieve its objectives, if such an approach is appropriate in the discretion of the Manager.
