Fund Overview

The Fund invests in an actively managed portfolio of Equity Securities of not less than 20 REIT Issuers and not more than 30 REIT Issuers,chosen from the REIT Leaders Investable Universe that immediately following each quarterly reconstitution (i) have a market capitalization of at least $2 billion at the time of investment; and (ii) have only Equity Securities that are listed on a recognized stock exchange of a developed market. In order to provide diversified exposure for Canadian investors that are seeking exposure to the REIT sectors, the Global REIT Leaders Income ETF aims to primarily focus on REIT Leaders with operations and/or offices outside of Canada.

The Global REIT Leaders Income ETF’s investment objective is to provide Unitholders with (i) the opportunity for capital appreciation; (ii) monthly cash distributions; and (iii) lower overall volatility of portfolio returns than would otherwise be experienced by owning Equity Securities of the REIT Leaders directly. To achieve lower overall volatility of portfolio returns, the Global REIT Leaders Income ETF will generally write covered call options on up to 33% of the option eligible portfolio securities. The level of covered call option writing may vary based on market volatility and other factors.

The Fund’s distribution target is $0.0458 per Unit per month ($0.55 per annum).
