TORONTO, Aug. 3, 2022 /CNW/ – Evolve Funds Group Inc. (“Evolve” or “the Manager“) is pleased to announce that it has filed a preliminary prospectus with the Canadian securities regulators for a U.S. dollar cash solution for Canadian investors. The US High Interest Savings Account Fund (“HISU” or the “Fund“) is designed to provide investors with a U.S. dollar savings product that offers daily liquidity and a competitive interest rate.
“Cash continues to be an important component of a well-diversified portfolio,” says Raj Lala, President and CEO at Evolve ETFs. “HISU is a great complement to our existing cash solutions with over $1 billion in AUM. We estimate Canadian investment advisors have approximately 10% of clients’ cash in USD. HISU will earn an attractive yield as the initial rate will be the Fed upper rate + 0.20%, which currently totals 2.70%.”
Similar to the High Interest Savings Account Fund (“HISA“) launched in November 2020, HISU will offer investors with an alternative to traditional savings instruments. HISU will offer daily liquidity and monthly income in a low-cost investment solution with an attractive yield that is expected to be competitive to other USD high interest savings funds.
The investment objective of HISU seeks to maximize monthly income while preserving capital and liquidity by investing primarily in high interest US dollar deposit accounts.
HISU will offer Unhedged ETF Units (USD$), Unhedged Class A Mutual Fund Units (USD$), Unhedged Class F Mutual Fund Units (USD$) and Unhedged Class I Mutual Fund Units (USD$).
