TORONTO, Aug. 31, 2022 /CNW/ – Evolve Funds Group Inc. (“Evolve” or “the Manager“) is pleased to announce the launch and temporary fee reduction on a U.S. dollar savings product that offers daily liquidity and a competitive interest rate. The US High Interest Savings Account Fund (“HISU“) has closed its initial offering of units and will begin trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX“) today under the ticker symbol: HISU.U.
Effective today, the annual management fee for HISU.U will be temporarily reduced by 10 basis points (0.10%). As a result, through December 31, 2022, the annual management fee of HISU.U will be five basis points (0.05%) plus applicable sales taxes, resulting in a higher yield to investors during this period.
“HISU is a great complement to our existing cash solutions which currently have over $1.2 billion in AUM,” says Raj Lala, President and CEO at Evolve. “Cash continues to be an important component of a well-diversified portfolio. HISU will earn an attractive yield which will be calculated as the Fed upper rate + 0.20%, which currently totals 2.70%. Any future Fed rate increases will be reflected in the HISU yield.”
HISU offers investors an alternative to traditional savings instruments through daily liquidity and monthly income. HISU is a low-cost investment solution with an attractive yield that is expected to be competitive to other USD high interest savings funds. The investment objective of HISU seeks to maximize monthly income while preserving capital and liquidity by investing primarily in high interest US dollar deposit accounts.
HISU offers Unhedged ETF Units (USD$), Unhedged Class A Mutual Fund Units (USD$), Unhedged Class F Mutual Fund Units (USD$) and Unhedged Class I Mutual Fund Units (USD$).
