RELATED TOPICS​

XTF Capital Corp plans to launch seven new exchange traded funds under the XTF Morningstar ETFs banner.

The XTF Morningstar ETFs offer exposure beyond basic market beta, leveraging Morningstar investment research in a transparent, low-cost and liquid vehicle. XTF and its parent company First Asset have licensed seven Morningstar Indexes for use as tracking indexes for certain of its ETFs.

"Morningstar is world renowned for the integrity of its research," says Barry Gordon, President and CEO of First Asset. "XTF Capital is now offering ETFs to Canadian investors based on Morningstar’s proprietary indexes, including those derived from the highly regarded research created by Morningstar’s CPMS business."

Three of the ETFs – XTF Morningstar Canada Dividend Target 30 Index ETF, XTF Morningstar US Dividend Target 50 Index ETF and XTF Morningstar National Bank Québec Index ETF – will begin trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange on Monday, 6 February. Two more ETFs – XTF Morningstar Canada Value Index ETF and XTF Morningstar Canada Momentum Index ETF – are anticipated to commence trading on 15 February, while XTF Morningstar Canada Liquid Bond Index ETF and XTF Morningstar Emerging Markets Composite Bond Index ETF are expected to launch this spring

The XTF Morningstar Canada Dividend Target 30 Index ETF has been designed to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the Morningstar Canada Dividend Target 30 Index, net of expenses. This index reflects the performance of 30 dividend-paying, Canada-based equities, screened for, among other things, above-average returns on equity and high cash flows relative to debt.

The XTF Morningstar National Bank Québec Index ETF has been designed to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the Morningstar National Bank Québec Index, net of expenses.

This index reflects the performance of 50 dividend-paying, US-based equities screened for, among other things, above-average returns on equity and high cash flows relative to debt.

The XTF Morningstar Canada Value Index ETF has been designed to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the Morningstar Canada Value Index, net of expenses. This index is comprised of liquid equity securities of Canadian companies screened for low price-to-earnings ratios, low price-to-cash flow ratios, low price-to-book value and sales, and upward earnings estimate revisions.

The XTF Morningstar Canada Momentum Index ETF has been designed to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the Morningstar Canada Momentum Index, net of expenses. This index is comprised of liquid equity securities of Canadian companies screened for above-average returns on assets and equity, with an emphasis on upward earnings estimate revisions and technical price-momentum indicators.

The XTF Morningstar Canada Liquid Bond Index ETF has been designed to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the Morningstar Canada Liquid Bond Index, net of expenses. This index includes the most liquid Canadian dollar-denominated federal government, provincial government and investment-grade corporate bonds.
