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 Brand Leaders directly.
In order to seek to generate additional returns, the Investment Manager will sell call options no more than 33% in each Equity Securities held in the Portfolio.
The Fund’s distribution target is $0.0542 per Unit per month ($0.65 per annum).

The Fund originally commenced operations as a TSX listed closed-end fund on July 24, 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. 100% of distributions are received in cash. 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.
