TORONTO, October 14, 2020 – Hamilton Capital Partners Inc. (“Hamilton ETFs“) is pleased to announce the launch of the Hamilton Canadian Bank 1.25x Leverage ETF (“HCAL“). HCAL seeks to replicate, to the extent reasonably possible and before the deduction of fees and expenses, a 1.25 times multiple of the Solactive Canadian Bank Mean Reversion Index.
HCAL has closed the offering of its initial units. Units of the ETF will begin trading on Thursday, October 15, 2020 on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX“) under the ticker symbol “HCAL”.
“We are excited to expand our innovative ETF offerings, with the launch of HCAL, a levered version of our Hamilton Canadian Bank Mean Reversion Index ETF (ticker: HCA). HCAL will provide investors with added exposure to the Canadian banking sector and offering enhanced return potential and a targeted yield of 6%+, making it one of the highest yielding Canadian bank ETFs. Canadian bank stocks remain well below their pre-COVID levels and HCAL is designed to help investors get more from their investment and achieve higher growth and higher dividends as the sector recovers from the credit cycle”, said Rob Wessel, Managing Partner at Hamilton ETFs.
