The Fund originally commenced operations as a TSX listed closed-end fund on March 25, 2015 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.
