Lysander Funds launches Lysander-Slater Preferred Share ActivETF


Lysander Funds and Jomisc Investments have launched the Lysander-Slater Preferred Share ActivETF, an exchange-traded mutual fund that seeks to generate income while preserving investor capital by investing primarily in preferred shares of Canadian entities that are listed on a Canadian stock exchange. 

The ActivETF has completed the initial public offering of its units and will begin trading tomorrow on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "PR".
In order to achieve its investment objective, the ActivETF will invest primarily in preferred shares of Canadian issuers listed in Canada, using fundamental and credit research. The ActivETF may also invest up to 10 per cent of its assets at the time of investment in other income-generating securities. The ActivETF will be actively managed and will seek to invest in mis-priced securities within the preferred share market in order to achieve additional income and/or capital appreciation.
