What is Mean-Reversion?

Mean reversion is one of the most popular themes in Canadian bank investing, given the individual Canadian banks have tended to perform similarly over time.

HCA attempts to take advantage of these tendencies by rebalancing the portfolio monthly and investing 80% of the portfolio in the 3 banks which have recently underperformed, and 20% in the 3 banks which have outperformed.



The fund is designed to closely track the returns of the Solactive Canadian Bank Mean Reversion Index TR, which applies a variable-weight, mean reversion trading strategy to Canada’s “Big Six” banks, with monthly rebalancing.
