TORONTO, April 3, 2018 /CNW/ - Evolve Funds Group Inc. ("Evolve ETFs") is pleased to announce that it has filed a preliminary prospectus with the Canadian securities regulators for the Evolve Innovation Index ETF ("EDGE"). EDGE is designed to provide Canadian investors with a portfolio of global companies involved in innovative and disruptive industries, including: cloud computing and big data, robotics and automation, genomics, blockchain, future cars, alternative or renewal energy and social media.
"The Evolve Innovation Index ETF complements our existing suite of thematic ETFs," said Raj Lala, President & CEO of Evolve ETFs. "Investments in many innovative and disruptive industries continue to have very solid long-term investment rationale behind them. We believe EDGE is the first ETF in Canada to provide balanced access to all of these emerging industries in a single simple-to-invest-in solution."
EDGE seeks to replicate, to the extent reasonably possible and before fees and expenses, the performance of the Solactive Global Innovation Index, or any successor thereto. EDGE directly or indirectly invests in equity securities of companies located domestically or internationally that are involved in innovative and disruptive trends across a broad range of industries.
Evolve ETFs, a registered investment fund manager and portfolio manager, will act as promoter, manager, trustee and portfolio manager of EDGE and will be responsible for the administration of EDGE.
A preliminary prospectus containing important information relating to securities of the Evolve ETF has been filed with the securities commissions or similar authorities in all provinces and territories of Canada. The preliminary prospectus is still subject to completion or amendment. A copy of the preliminary prospectus is available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com). There will not be any sale or acceptance of an offer to buy the securities until a receipt for the final prospectus has been issued.
