Fund Overview

The Fund invests in an equally weighted portfolio of Equity Securities of 20 Energy Issuers chosen from the Energy Leaders Investable Universe that (i) have a minimum market capitalization of at least $10 billion (ii) are paying a dividend/distribution; (iii) have options in respect of their Equity Securities listed on a recognized options exchange; and (iv) have operations and/or offices in at least two countries. In order to provide a more diversified exposure for Canadian investors that are seeking exposure to the energy sector, the Fund aims to focus on Energy Leaders with operations and/or offices outside of Canada. The portfolio is rebalanced quarterly back to equal weights.

The Fund’s investment objectives are to provide Unitholders with: (i) monthly cash distributions; (ii) the opportunity for capital appreciation; and (iii) lower overall volatility of Portfolio returns than would otherwise be experienced by owning Equity Securities of the Energy Leaders directly.

In order to seek to generate additional returns, the Investment Manager will not sell call options on more than 33% of the Equity Securities of any of the Energy Leaders held in the Portfolio.

The Fund’s distribution target is $0.0583 per Class A unit per month ($0.70 per annum) or US$0.0583 per Class U Unit per Month (US$0.70 per annum)

Energy Leaders Plus Income ETF

The Fund originally commenced operations as a TSX listed closed-end fund on October 21, 2014 and converted into an exchange-traded fund on October 24, 2016. Commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with investing in HARVEST Exchange Traded Funds. Please read the relevant prospectus before investing. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns. The funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. Distributions are paid to you in cash unless you request, pursuant to your participation in a distribution reinvestment plan, that they be reinvested into Class A or Class U units of the Fund. If the Fund earns less than the amounts distributed, the difference is a return of capital. Tax, investment and all other decisions should be made with guidance from a qualified professional.
