NEW: First Asset Health Care Giants Covered Call ETF

NEW: First Asset Health Care Giants Covered Call ETF

First Asset Investment Management Inc. (“First Asset”) is pleased to announce that First Asset Health Care Giants Covered Call ETF (the “ETF”) has closed the initial offering of its units (the “Units”) and the Units will commence trading today on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) under the ticker symbols FHI (the “Hedged Units”) and FHI.B (the “Unhedged Units”).

The ETF’s investment objectives are to provide holders, through an actively managed portfolio, with (i) regular cash distributions, (ii) the opportunity for capital appreciation by investing on an equal weight basis in a portfolio of securities of the 20 health care companies, as determined by First Asset in its discretion, with the largest market capitalization listed on a North American 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, by employing a covered call option writing program.

Unlike the Hedged Units, which hedge at least 90% of the value of the foreign currency exposure, if any, attributable to the Hedged Units back to the Canadian dollar, the foreign currency exposure attributable to the Unhedged Units will not be hedged back to the Canadian dollar.
