Corporate Class CI First Asset Core Canadian Equity Income Class ETF


Investment Objectives

The Fund's investment objectives are to seek to provide Shareholders with: (i) long term capital appreciation with an attractive risk-adjusted rate of return; and (ii) consistent dividend income; through investing the Fund's portfolio to gain exposure to equity securities of primarily large capitalization Canadian issuers.

The Fund will use a multi-factor portfolio optimization strategy to allocate its assets to gain exposure to equity securities of primarily large capitalization Canadian issuers in order to try to create a well-diversified portfolio with strong fundamentals, attractive levels of dividend income and a historical risk adjusted rate of return greater than a broad capitalization weighted Canadian equity fund.

(1) Future distribution dates may be amended at any time. (2) Reinvested distributions are not paid in cash but instead remain invested in the Fund. To recognize that these distributions have been allocated to investors for tax purposes the amounts of these distributions should be added to the adjusted cost base of the units held. (3) The characterization of distributions for tax purposes (such as dividends/other income/capital gains etc.) will not be known for certain until after the Fund's tax year end. Therefore investors will be informed of the characterization of the amounts distributed for tax purposes only for the entire year and not with each distribution. For tax purposes these amounts will be reported by brokers on official tax statements.

National Instrument 81-106 Investment Fund Continuous Disclosure requires disclosure of the proxy voting record on an annual basis for the period ending on June 30 of each year. The proxy voting record must be posted on the website no later than August 31 of each year.

Canadian securities law provides that the manager of an investment funds (in this case, CI Investments Inc. ("CI")), acting on behalf of the investment fund, has the right and obligation to vote proxies relating to the investment fund's portfolio securities. As a practical matter, CI delegates this function to the applicable portfolio manager or sub-adviser, as part of the portfolio manager's or sub-adviser's general management of the investment fund assets, subject to oversight by CI. CI generally requires that applicable portfolio managers or sub-advisers vote all proxies in the best interest of CI's funds and their securityholders, as determined solely by the portfolio manager or sub-adviser, and subject to CI's proxy voting policy, the guidelines applicable to the individual portfolio manager or sub-adviser, and applicable legislation. Portfolio managers and sub-advisers are generally expected to vote on any matter for which the investment fund receives proxy materials for a meeting of securityholders of an issuer.

Proxy voting record for the most recent year:

30 Jun, 2019 - Proxy Voting Record

30 Jun, 2018 - Proxy Voting Record

Warning: Documents posted on this website (including, without limitation, prospectuses) are current only as of the date on them
