Brompton Flaherty & Crumrine Investment Grade Preferred ETF

Select other strategies


Overview
This actively managed ETF seeks to provide: (i) stable monthly cash distributions; and (ii) a stable net asset value. The ETF actively invests in a portfolio consisting of Canadian and U.S. dollar denominated corporate preferred securities, trust preferred securities and other corporate debt, with foreign currency substantially hedged to the Canadian dollar. At least 75% of the ETF’s portfolio (at the time of investment) consists of securities that are rated investment grade. The Sub-Advisor will select a portfolio of preferred investments for the ETF, giving consideration to the opportunity for income, issuer and security diversification, credit quality, and duration/interest rate sensitivity, among other factors.

Why Invest in Preferred Securities?
  • Primarily investment-grade securities, with higher yield than many other fixed income categories.
  • Historical outperformance of other fixed income categories during periods of rising long-term interest rates.
  • Low correlation of returns; effective tool to diversify portfolio returns and risk

PLEASE READ AND ACCEPT THESE IMPORTANT DISCLOSURES

You will usually pay brokerage fees to your dealer if you purchase or sell units of the investment fund on the Toronto Stock Exchange or alternative Canadian trading platforms (an “exchange”). If the units are purchased or sold on an exchange, investors may pay more than the current net asset value when buying units of the investment fund and may receive less than the current net asset value when selling them.

There are ongoing fees and expenses associated with owning units of an investment fund. An investment fund must prepare disclosure documents that contain key information about the fund. You can find more detailed information about the fund in the public filings available at www.sedar.com. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account certain fees such as redemption costs or income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns. Investment funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.

This communication is for information purposes only and does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation to buy the securities referred to herein. The opinions contained in this report are solely those of Goldman Sachs Asset Management L.P. (“GSAM”) and are subject to change without notice.

In some cases, forward-looking information can be identified by terms such as “may”, “will”, “should”, “expect”, “plan”, “anticipate”, “believe”, “intend”, “estimate”, “predict”, “potential”, “continue” or other similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts. Actual results may vary from such forward-looking information. Investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are made as of the date December 15, 2015 and we assume no obligation to update or revise them to reflect new events or circumstances.
