TORONTO, February 7, 2022 – Hamilton Capital Partners Inc. (“Hamilton ETFs“) is pleased to announce the launch of the Hamilton Enhanced U.S. Covered Call ETF (“HYLD“). HYLD seeks to replicate, to the extent reasonably possible and before the deduction of fees and expenses, a 1.25 times multiple of the Solactive U.S. Covered Call ETFs Index.
HYLD has closed the offering of its initial CDN$ Hedged Units and US$ Unhedged Units. The Units of the ETF will begin trading on Tuesday, February 8, 2022 on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX“), with the CDN$ Hedged Units trading under the ticker symbol “HYLD” and the US$ Unhedged Units trading under the ticker symbol “HYLD.U”.
“Following on the success of HDIV, our popular Canadian-focused Hamilton Enhanced Multi-Sector Covered Call ETF, the Hamilton Enhanced U.S. Covered Call ETF (HYLD) aims to offer investors attractive monthly income (targeting an initial yield of 10%), but with exposure to the U.S. equity markets. Offered in both CAD and USD, HYLD specifically will invest in a portfolio of higher-yielding U.S.-focused covered call ETFs, while adding modest leverage of 25% to enhance growth potential and yield. Similar to HDIV, we believe that HYLD can be a core holding for long-term investors, and a significantly higher-yielding alternative to broad-based U.S. equity ETFs,” said Pat Sommerville, Partner and Head of Business Development at Hamilton ETFs.
