First Asset Morningstar U.S. Consumer Defensive Index Fund

  

Investment Objectives

First Asset Morningstar U.S. Consumer Defensive Index Fund (the "Fund") is a closed-end investment fund established under the laws of the Province of Ontario which proposes to issue transferable units of the Fund (the "Units") at a price of $10.00 per Unit (the "Offering").

The Fund's investment objectives are to provide holders of Units (the "Holders") with:

  • the opportunity for capital appreciation; and
  • monthly cash distributions.

The Fund has been created to invest in a portfolio (the "Portfolio") that is designed to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the Morningstar® Consumer Defensive IndexTM (the "Index"), net of expenses.

The Portfolio will invest in the securities of the issuers comprising the Index in the same proportion as these constituents represent in the Index and accordingly the composition of the Portfolio will vary from time to time based on the composition of the Index. The Index is comprised of highly liquid, U.S. domiciled companies that trade on one of the three major U.S. exchanges and that are engaged in the manufacturing of food, beverages, household and personal products, packaging, or tobacco and also includes companies that provide services such as education and training services.
