TORONTO, June 19, 2023 /CNW/ – Evolve Funds Group Inc. (“Evolve“) is pleased to announce that it has filed a preliminary prospectus with the Canadian securities regulators with plans to bring a technology-focused ETF derived from the Nasdaq-100 Index® to the Canadian market. The Evolve NASDAQ Technology Index Fund (“QQQT” or the “Fund“) is designed to provide investors with market cap exposure to only the companies deemed “technology” within the Nasdaq-100 Index®.
“When many investors think of their technology allocation, they refer to the Nasdaq-100®,” says Raj Lala, President and CEO at Evolve ETFs. “Today, 38 companies within the Nasdaq-100® are classified in the technology sector. QQQT will provide investors with pure-play access to only the technology sector of the index.”
QQQT seeks to replicate, to the extent reasonably possible and before fees and expenses, the performance of the Nasdaq-100 Technology Sector Adjusted Market-Cap Weighted™ Index, or any successor thereto (the “Index“). The Index is designed to measure the performance of the technology companies in the Nasdaq-100 Index®, which measures the performance of 100 of the largest non-financial companies listed on Nasdaq. The Index consists of a selection of securities in the Nasdaq-100 Index® which must be classified as a “technology company” (i.e., any company classified under the “technology industry”) according to the Industry Classification Benchmark (ICB). No issuer weight may exceed 10% of the Index.
The Fund will be market-capitalization-weighted and rebalanced quarterly. The following chart sets out the ETF Units for each of the Fund:
