TORONTO, March 1, 2022 /CNW/ – Evolve Funds Group Inc. (“Evolve“) is pleased to announce the launch of the Evolve Enhanced FANGMA Index ETF (“TECE“). TECE has closed its initial offering of units and will begin trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) today under the ticker symbols: TECE (CAD Hedged Units), TECE.B (CAD Unhedged Units) and TECE.U (USD Unhedged Units).
TECE seeks to replicate, to the extent reasonably possible and before fees and expenses, a 1.25 times multiple of the performance of the Solactive FANGMA Equal Weight Index Canadian Dollar Hedged (“FANGMA Index“), or any successor thereto. TECE provides investors with exposure to the equity securities of six technology titans:
|Alphabet Inc.||Amazon Inc.||Apple Inc.||Facebook Inc.||Netflix Inc.||Microsoft Corp.|
“Despite posting very strong returns in 2021, technology stocks have been under pressure recently on rising inflation, rate hike expectations and geopolitical concerns,” says Raj Lala, President and CEO, at Evolve. “Over the past couple of years FANGMA stocks have been significant contributors to market returns, however, are down 17% year-to-date. Historically, these six tech giants have provided consistent earnings which could make this recent pullback a great time for investors to consider enhanced exposure to big tech.”
TECE will use leverage in order to seek to achieve its investment objective. Leverage will be created through the use of cash borrowings or as otherwise permitted under applicable securities legislation.
The FANGMA Index is equally weighted, rebalanced quarterly and published in US dollars. For more information visit https://evolveetfs.com/product/tece/
