First Asset Long Duration Fixed Income ETF

Investment Objectives

First Asset Long Duration Fixed Income ETF provides exposure to longer dated government bonds, with the higher level of income and lower correlation to equity markets that they provide. A well-known hedge against equity market dislocation, longer duration government fixed income securities can represent an important component in strategic and tactical asset allocation.

The ETF's investment objective is to provide unitholders with regular distributions and the opportunity for capital appreciation from the performance of a portfolio comprised primarily of longer dated developed markets, Canadian and U.S. government issued fixed income securities.

(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.
