TORONTO, Jan. 15 /CNW/ - Claymore Investments, Inc. is pleased to
announce the launch of the Claymore Global Monthly Yield Hog ETF (CYH) to
begin trading today on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX).
Claymore Global Monthly Yield Hog ETF seeks to provide investment results
that generally correspond to the performance of the Zacks Global Yield Hog
Index. The fund, through a Forward Agreement with the National Bank of Canada
(NBF), will receive exposure to the securities that comprise the Index.
Zacks Global Yield Hog Index seeks to provide attractive tax-efficient
income through an index of global-oriented securities. Zacks uses a
proprietary methodology, designed to identify companies with potentially high
income and superior risk/return profiles while maintaining industry
diversification, from a universe of companies, such as; Global Dividend-Paying
Equities, Global Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), Master Limited
Partnerships (MLPs), Income Trusts, US Preferred Stock.
"The 'Hog' will be the first ETF in Canada to focus on global dividend
and income paying securities. It combines the benefits of global investing
with yield oriented investing. Prior to this ETF, it was very difficult for
Canadians to get access to global yielding securities on a tax-efficient
basis, which was a major benefit of using the forward agreement structure",
said Som Seif, President & CEO of Claymore Investments, Inc.
