Harvest US Equity Plus Income ETF 

The Fund was originally named US Buyback Leaders Fund and commenced operations as a TSX listed closed-end fund on March 25, 2015 and converted into an exchange-traded fund on October 24, 2016. On June 22, 2017, US Buyback Leaders ETF changed its name to US Equity Plus Income ETF. Commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with investing in Harvest Exchange Traded Funds (managed by Harvest Portfolios Group Inc.). 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 security holder that would have reduced returns. The Fund is not guaranteed, its value changes 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.
