TORONTO, April 30, 2021 – Evolve Funds Group Inc. (“Evolve”) is pleased to announce that it has filed the final prospectus in plans to launch the first of its kind Evolve FANGMA Index ETF (“TECH”). TECH is expected to begin trading on Thursday, May 6, 2021 on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”), subject to TSX approval. TECH provides investors with exposure to the equity securities of six technology titans: Alphabet Inc., Amazon Inc., Apple Inc., Facebook Inc., Netflix Inc. and Microsoft Corp.
“These six companies have transformed our world and have been a big driver of growth and returns for our markets,” says Raj Lala, President and CEO at Evolve. “In fact, last year they accounted for more than half of the performance in the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ 100. One of the numerous operational advantages of using this Fund is the fact that investors can get exposure to these six companies for a $10 starting share price. This compares with investing almost $7,000 at current market prices to purchase one share of each of these companies.”
TECH seeks to replicate, to the extent reasonably possible and before fees and expenses, the performance of the Solactive FANGMA Equal Weight Index (“FANGMA Index”). The FANGMA Index is equally weighted, rebalanced quarterly and published in US dollars. The FANGMA Index measures the performance of the following companies eligible for inclusion:
