 Fund Profile    Prospectus    

Investment Objectives

The Fund's investment objectives are to provide Shareholders with (i) quarterly distributions; (ii) the opportunity for capital appreciation; and (iii) lower overall volatility of portfolio returns than would be experienced by owning a portfolio of common shares of the following banks directly: Bank of Montreal, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, National Bank of Canada, Royal Bank of Canada, The Bank of Nova Scotia and The Toronto-Dominion Bank.

As part of its investment strategy, each month, the Fund sells call options on approximately, and not more than, 25% of the common shares of each bank held in the portfolio.

Sector Breakdown*

As at 30 November 2017
*As a percent of invested assets

The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns, including changes in unit value and do not take into account sales, redemption or optional charges or income taxes payable by a security holder that would have reduced returns. The Fund was originally launched as a TSX-listed closed-end fund on August 18, 2010, and converted into an exchange traded fund on September 24, 2015. Performance shown is since inception of the closed-end fund. In connection with the conversion, and pursuant to unitholder approval, the annual management fee payable by the Fund to First Asset, as manager, was reduced to 0.65% (from 1.05%) of the NAV per unit. Had these changes been in effect prior to this date the performance of the Fund could have been different.


S&P/TSX Equal Weight Diversified Banks Index consists of commercial banks whose businesses primarily include commercial lending operations, retail banking, as well as small and medium enterprise corporate lending. This Index is used as a benchmark to help you understand the Fund`s performance relative to the general performance of the Canadian financial sector.
