TORONTO, September 8, 2023 – Hamilton Capital Partners Inc. (“Hamilton ETFs“) is pleased to announce that it has obtained a receipt from the Ontario Securities Commission for the final prospectus of three new products within its suite of yield maximizer ETFs: Hamilton U.S. Bond Yield Maximizer ETF (HBND), Hamilton Technology Yield Maximizer ETF (QMAX) and Hamilton U.S. Equity Yield Maximizer ETF (SMAX). The Toronto Stock Exchange (the TSX) has also provided its conditional listing approval for these new ETFs.
HBND, the first of its kind in Canada, is expected to launch and commence trading on the TSX on or about September 15, 2023, with QMAX and SMAX to follow in Q4 2023.
“We are excited to introduce these new yield-focused products to our line-up this fall, including Canada’s first covered call bond ETF. With an initial target yield of 10%, HBND, is designed for investors looking for higher yield from the fixed income portion of their portfolios. Providing exposure to U.S. treasuries and an active covered call strategy, HBND combines the strength and security of U.S. government bonds with the higher income potential and tax-efficiency of covered calls”, said Pat Sommerville, Senior Partner and Head of Business Development at Hamilton ETFs.
