TORONTO, October 19, 2021 – Hamilton Capital Partners Inc. (“Hamilton ETFs“) is pleased to announce that in its first year ended October 14, 2021, the Hamilton Enhanced Canadian Bank ETF (“HCAL“) had a total return of 60.4%, making it the top performing Canadian bank ETF over this period. HCAL is also one of the highest yielding Canadian bank ETFs with a current indicated yield of 4.95%, paid monthly.
“We believe HCAL continues to be favourably positioned relative to other Canadian bank ETF investment strategies. The Canadian banks are still seen to be in the recovery stage of the economic and credit cycle, which would support higher earnings and capital. With the potential for large dividend increases looming and relatively low valuations, we see the sector – and HCAL – as poised to benefit” said Rob Wessel, Managing Partner at Hamilton ETFs.
“We would like to thank our investors for their continued support of HCAL. We are very pleased with its performance and significant AUM growth in its first year. We continue to believe that HCAL is an excellent choice for long-term investors, offering enhanced growth potential and higher monthly income,” said Pat Sommerville, Partner, Head of Business Development at Hamilton ETFs.
