TORONTO, Sept. 28, 2023 /CNW/ – Evolve Funds Group Inc. (“Evolve” or the “Manager“) is pleased to announce that it has filed a final prospectus for the Evolve Enhanced Yield Bond Fund (“BOND” or the “Fund“). BOND is expected to begin trading on Wednesday, October 4, 2023, on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX“), subject to TSX approval.
Evolve has waived the management fee payable on the units of BOND from the date of the prospectus until March 31, 2024. BOND will provide investors with a low-cost fixed income solution that will seek to deliver attractive monthly income and long-term capital appreciation by utilizing an active covered call strategy.
“Market conditions over the past year have been particularly challenging for yield strategies, leading many investors to seek new solutions,” said Raj Lala, President and CEO at Evolve. “We are pleased to introduce BOND to investors that are looking to earn higher yield in their fixed income portfolios. This fund is a great complement to our existing suite of covered call ETFs, by providing enhanced income, tax efficient yield and helping cushion downside risk.”
BOND will invest primarily in fixed income ETFs. To enhance yield, as well as mitigate risk and reduce volatility, BOND will employ a covered call option writing program at the discretion of the Manager. The level of covered call option writing may vary based on market volatility and other factors. The Manager believes that option writing may have potential to enhance yield and is an effective way to help lower the level of volatility for an investor and potentially improve returns.
The TSX ticker symbol for the Hedged Units (CAD$) of the Fund is “BOND“.
