Harvest Portfolios Group

Equity Income ETFs

Investment Philosophy

Harvest Equity Income ETF portfolios are invested in companies that are well-established, with strong balance sheets and consistent earnings growth. We generate steady income by collecting dividends and by selling call options to generate a premium on a portion of the portfolio. This strategy provides the ability to pay attractive, tax-efficient, monthly distributions for our investors.

Growth Industries

We are invested in long-term growth. Harvest ETFs are invested in industries or secular Mega-Trends that have long-term growth potential. These areas have structural tailwinds and go beyond specific sectors. Our ETFs own the companies we believe are best suited to participate in this growth potential.

Quality Businesses

We own quality businesses. We use quantitative models to select leading companies with a long history of success. Companies that dominate their industries, innovate, lead, and have brand equity measured by a long record of strong financial performance.

Consistent Income

We deliver income. To provide attractive monthly cashflows, we use a covered call option strategy to enhance the natural dividend yield of a portfolio. Using proprietary models, the investment management team will sell options on a portion of positions in the portfolio in order to generate steady, tax-efficient income. This can also reduce some of the volatility associated with equity investing.

A Proven Process

The active covered call option strategy used in Harvest Equity Income ETFs is a proven process for generating monthly cashflow. Harvest Equity Income ETFs all use covered call strategies to generate income in line with their specific mandates that have investment objectives to provide enhanced income. Each Harvest Equity Income ETF has provided consistent income distributions every month since their inception. The Harvest Investment Management Team has decades of combined investment management experience to implement the engagement of this process.

The underlying philosophy of Harvest is consistent across all our products. Ownership of Equities for long term growth.
