Harvest ETFs was named the Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards Canada 2022 Winner, Harvest Tech Achievers Growth & Income ETF, Best Sector Equity Fund over 3 years (Class A) and 5 years (Class U).
The Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards have been an industry leader for over 30 years in the assessment and recognition of funds and fund managers based on their consistent risk-adjusted performance relative to their peers. Using Lipper’s proprietary quantitative methodology, the awards are an independent and uncompromised reflection of fund performance.
“This award recognizes the success of our vision for ETF investing,” said Michael Kovacs, President & CEO of Harvest ETFs. “Our approach has always been to focus on growth industries, select leading large-cap companies, and apply our active & flexible covered call option strategy. We are proud to see that philosophy recognized by an award as respected as the Lipper.”
The Harvest Tech Achievers Growth & Income ETF (HTA:TSX) holds an equally-weighted portfolio of 20 large-cap Technology companies diversified across global technology sectors. The ETF is designed to provide consistent monthly income for unitholders, which is achieved in part through an active covered call option strategy.
“2022 has not been an easy year for the technology sector,” said James Learmonth, Senior Portfolio Manager at Harvest ETFs. “But our thesis from the launch of this fund was that by focusing on the most established companies while generating cashflow and monetizing volatility through active call option writing, we could meet the needs of Canadian investors and deliver risk-adjusted returns.”
HTA uses Harvest ETF’s active & flexible covered call option writing strategy. Through this strategy Harvest Portfolio Managers can generate high income yields, monetize periods of market volatility, and capture potentially greater upside than a passively managed call option ETF.
“We applaud the 2022 Refinitiv Lipper Fund Award winners such as Harvest ETFs for delivering outperformance and the accompanying comfort of consistency to investors’ portfolios in a time of unprecedented change,” said Robert Jenkins, Head of Research, Lipper.
