October 4, 2021

OAKVILLE, ON, Oct. 4, 2021 /CNW/ – Harvest Portfolios Group Inc. (“Harvest”) is pleased to announce that it has filed a preliminary prospectus with the Canadian securities regulators for Canada’s first sports & entertainment industry ETF, the Harvest Sports & Entertainment Index ETF (“HSPN”). This innovative ETF is designed to provide Canadian investors access to the growing and dynamic sports entertainment industry.

“We are excited to bring another first to Canada with the Harvest Sports & Entertainment Index ETF” said Michael Kovacs, President and CEO of Harvest. “Sports entertainment has grown into a true global leisure industry and has experienced wide acceptance across all venues from spectator to e-gaming to merchandizing and ticketing. The Sports business is regaining its foothold after months of lost revenues and empty stadiums while e-gaming continues to grow into a multi billion-dollar Industry.”

HSPN seeks to replicate, to the extent reasonably possible and before fees and expenses, the performance of the Solactive Sports & Entertainment Index. The Solactive Sports & Entertainment Index primarily includes issuers that are engaged in iGambling, eGaming, sports equipment & apparel, event bookings & entertainment and professional sports that are listed on a regulated stock exchange in North America and select global developed markets.

Harvest, a registered investment fund manager and portfolio manager, will act as promoter, trustee, manager and portfolio manager of HSPN and will be responsible for the administration of HSPN.
