TORONTO, May 4, 2023 /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 with plans to bring two cash management solutions (“Evolve Funds“) to the Canadian market. The Premium Cash Management Fund (“MCAD“) and the US Premium Cash Management Fund (“MUSD“) are designed to provide investors with the ability to maximize current income, while at the same time preserving capital and maintaining liquidity, by investing primarily in Canadian dollar-denominated and U.S. dollar-denominated high-quality short term debt securities (with a term to maturity of 365 days or less), respectively.
“With North American interest rates at multi-decade highs, money market funds have become increasingly attractive,” says Raj Lala, President and CEO at Evolve ETFs. “As Evolve grows its platform to $6 billion in assets under management, these new money market funds will serve as an excellent complement to our existing high interest savings account funds.”
Premium Cash Management Fund
MCAD will invest primarily in Canadian dollar-denominated high-quality short term debt instruments such as treasury bills, bankers acceptances, bearer deposit notes, commercial paper (including asset-backed commercial paper), promissory notes, floating rate notes as well as other short term debt obligations of, or guaranteed by, the Canadian governments or their agencies, Canadian chartered banks, Canadian loan or trust companies or Canadian corporations.
US Premium Cash Management Fund
MUSD will invest primarily in U.S. dollar-denominated high-quality short term debt instruments such as treasury bills, bankers acceptances, bearer deposit notes, commercial paper (including asset-backed commercial paper), promissory notes, floating rate notes as well as other short term debt obligations of, or guaranteed by, the U.S. governments or their agencies, U.S. chartered banks, U.S. loan or trust companies or U.S. corporations.
