First Asset launches...

First Asset Investment Management has launched the First Asset Preferred Share ETF (FPR) and First Asset Long Duration Fixed Income ETF (FLB) on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Signature Global Asset Management, an affiliate of First Asset and a division of CI Investments Inc., is the Portfolio Manager for both funds. Signature Global Asset Management, led by its Chief Investment Officer, Eric Bushell, manages over $50 billion in core equity, balanced and income-oriented funds, and is CI Investments Inc.'s largest in-house portfolio management group. These two actively managed ETFs will each be managed by sector specialists within Signature Global Asset Management.

 

 

The First Asset Preferred Share ETF is actively managed in order to address the complexities of, and capitalize on the opportunities provided by, the preferred share market as it changes and evolves.  New issues with varied and complex features make it a challenging market for average investors to understand and invest in wisely.  John Shaw of Signature Global Asset Management, with his deep understanding of the preferred share market, is well placed to capitalize on the opportunities provided by the current dislocation in the preferred share market and add long term value.

The First Asset Preferred Share ETF's investment objective is to provide unitholders with regular distributions; and the opportunity for capital appreciation from the performance of a portfolio comprised primarily of preferred shares of North American issuers. This actively managed portfolio will be comprised primarily of investment grade preferred shares and to a lesser extent investment grade corporate debt and convertible bonds. At least 75 per cent of the Preferred Shares and Corporate Debt in the portfolio of FPR shall be rated investment grade at the end of every reporting period (June 30th and December 31st). More information about First Asset Preferred Share ETF is available at http://firstasset.com.

The First Asset Long Duration Fixed Income ETF provides exposure to longer dated government bonds, with the higher level of income and lower correlation to equity markets that they provide.  A well-known hedge against equity market dislocation, longer duration government fixed income securities can represent an important component in strategic and tactical asset allocation.  Fixed income specialist portfolio manager, Kamyar Hazaveh of Signature Global Asset Management is the lead portfolio manager.

The First Asset Long Duration Fixed Income ETF's investment objective is to provide unitholders with regular distributions and the opportunity for capital appreciation from the performance of a portfolio comprised primarily of longer dated developed markets, Canadian and U.S. government issued fixed income securities.
