Balanced ETFs Q&A

Why did you choose to launch a balanced ETF?

Most current balanced funds in the Canadian market provide income at levels below inflation rates and have distribution frequencies that are mostly quarterly and annually. The Harvest Balanced Income & Growth ETF aims to produce and deliver high monthly income while providing access to a 60/40 balanced portfolio for steady growth.

How will HBIG deliver value to its Unitholders?

HBIG will provide unitholders with monthly cash distributions and the opportunity for capital appreciation by investing, on a non-levered basis, in a portfolio of exchange traded funds that are listed on a recognized North American stock exchange.

This ETF provides exposure towards large capitalization equity securities, investment grade bonds or money market instruments issued by corporations or governments and will include ETFs that engage in covered call strategies. HBIG will invest up to 75% of its net assets ETFs that make use covered calls.

What is the Harvest Balanced Income & Growth Enhanced ETF? How does it differ from HBIG?

Some investors are seeking more income and potentially higher returns. For these investors, we launched the Harvest Balanced Income & Growth Enhanced ETF ( HBIE). This ETF aims to provide higher levels of income and returns using a 25% leverage on a portfolio that replicates HBIG.
