OAKVILLE, ON, Aug 2, 2022 /CNW/ – Harvest Portfolios Group Inc. (“Harvest”) is pleased to announce that it has filed a preliminary prospectus with the Canadian securities regulators for the Harvest ESG Equity Income Index ETF (“HESG”). This innovative ETF is designed to provide Canadian investors access to an ESG screened investment portfolio with monthly income.
“Harvest is pleased to introduce an ESG income strategy that follows our long-term Equity Income philosophy.” said Michael Kovacs, President and CEO of Harvest. “Many Canadians want to invest to reflect their values but also require steady monthly income. HESG addresses both in a single ETF.”
HESG seeks to track, to the extent reasonably possible before fees and expenses, the performance of the Solactive ESG US Equity Index TR or any successor thereto, while mitigating downside risk. Harvest ESG Equity Income Index ETF invests primarily in the equity constituents of Solactive ESG US Equity Index TR, or any successor thereto, while writing covered call options on up to 33% of the portfolio securities. The level of covered call option writing may vary based on market volatility and other factors.
Harvest, a registered investment fund manager and portfolio manager, will act as promoter, trustee, manager and portfolio manager of HESG and will be responsible for the administration of HESG.
