First Asset Active Canadian Dividend ETF

Investment Objectives

First Asset Active Canadian Dividend ETF (the "Fund") will invest in an actively managed portfolio comprised primarily of dividend-paying and other equity securities of Canadian issuers. The Fund may also invest up to 30% of its net asset value in dividend-paying and other equity securities of non-Canadian issuers.

The Fund's investment objective is to seek long-term total returns consisting of regular dividend income and long-term capital appreciation from an actively managed portfolio comprised primarily of dividend-paying and other equity securities of Canadian issuers.

The Fund will seek to achieve its investment objective through a process that will incorporate both a top-down approach to sector allocation and a bottom-up approach to security selection. Specifically, in constructing and managing the portfolio, the Portfolio Manager intends to apply a top down, macroeconomic approach to sector allocation and rotation, based on its views of the stage of the economic cycle. In selecting individual securities within a particular sector, the Portfolio Manager intends to use a research driven, fundamental approach that highlights issuers that are either undervalued in the Portfolio Manager's opinion, or have attractive valuations relative to their peers in the sector.
