First Asset Energy Giants Covered Call ETF (Unhedged)

 Fund Profile    Prospectus    

Investment Objectives

The Fund's investment objective is to provide holders, through an actively managed portfolio, with (i) quarterly cash distributions, (ii) the opportunity for capital appreciation by investing on an equal weight basis in a portfolio of equity securities of the 15 largest non-Canadian issuers classified within either the "Integrated Oil & Gas" or "Oil & Gas Exploration & Production" Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) sub-industry groups, or otherwise determined by the Manager to derive their revenue primarily from the exploration for and production of oil and natural gas ("Energy Companies") measured by US$ market capitalization with common stock or ADRs listed on a Canadian or U.S. stock exchange, and (iii) lower overall volatility of returns on the portfolio than would be experienced by owning a portfolio of securities of such issuers directly.

The foreign currency exposure attributable to the Units will not be hedged back to the Canadian dollar.

(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.
