OAKVILLE, Ontario (BUSINESS WIRE) – Harvest ETFs is pleased to announce that it has been recognized at the 2023 Refinitiv Lipper Funds Awards (Canada) for the second year in a row.
Harvest ETFs was named the Refinitiv Lipper Fund Awards Canada 2023 Winner, Harvest Tech Achievers Growth & Income ETF – Best Sector Equity Fund over 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.
“We at Harvest ETFs are proud to be recognized for the success of our investment management process,” said Michael Kovacs, President & CEO of Harvest ETFs. “We have always focused on growth industries, selecting leading large-cap companies, and have applied our active & flexible covered call option strategy. This year, we have expanded to provide exposure to investment grade bonds that are overlayed with covered calls for high income. We are delighted to see that our philosophy has been recognized by an award as respected as the Lipper two years in a row.”
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.
“The technology sector has performed strongly this year,” said James Learmonth, Senior Portfolio Manager at Harvest ETFs. “A renewed focus on profitable growth by many of the largest constituents, and excitement about the possibilities for artificial intelligence, has driven enthusiasm for the group. Since this fund launched, we have focused on leading technology companies while generating cashflow and monetizing volatility through active call option writing. This helps to meet the needs of Canadian investors, provide consistent monthly income, 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.
