Sphere Investments has launched the Sphere FTSE Asia Sustainable Yield Index ETF and Sphere FTSE Europe Sustainable Yield Index ETF. The two new ETFs come hot on the heels of the Sphere FTSE US Sustainable Yield Index ETF and the Sphere FTSE Canada Sustainable Yield Index ETF (SHC), which launched earlier in the week.

The initial suite of four Sphere ETFs are the first in a series of more than 30 that company plans to launch as part of its integrated wealth management platform.

"As a Canadian owned and operated ETF provider, we are proud to offer an innovative, diversified and cost effective suite of smart beta/factor-tilted products to Canadian investors," says Lewis Bateman, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Sphere Investment Management Inc.  "Sphere will build a robust wealth management platform to provide tailored solutions for a variety of investor needs and risk profiles."

"Sphere was built to provide market-leading investment strategies that benefit a variety of investors," says Keith McLean, President and Chief Investment Officer, Sphere Investment Management Inc.  "It's for this reason we have worked closely with top-tier partners including FTSE Russell, State Street and Bloomberg to develop global, best of breed strategies and a platform to meet the needs of all Canadians."

"I'm immensely proud to be a part of this highly experienced leadership team," says Gerry Throop, Chairman, Sphere Investment Management Inc.  "Sphere has excellent depth of talent and experience across ETFs, portfolio management, investment research, sales and marketing.  We look forward to changing the ETF landscape."

The Sphere FTSE Asia Sustainable Yield Index ETF (SHA) seeks to replicate, to the extent reasonably possible and before fees and expenses, the performance of the FTSE Developed Asia Sustainable Yield 150 10% Capped 100% Hedge CAD Index, or any successor thereto. Sphere FTSE Asia Sustainable Yield Index ETF invests directly or indirectly in up to 150 equity securities of public issuers from countries within the region classified by FTSE as developed Asia, exhibiting relatively high and sustainable yields, as at the time of reconstitution or balancing.

The Sphere FTSE Europe Sustainable Yield Index ETF (SHE) seeks to replicate, to the extent reasonably possible and before fees and expenses, the performance of the FTSE Developed Europe Sustainable Yield 150 10% Capped 100% Hedge CAD Index, or any successor thereto. Sphere FTSE Europe Sustainable Yield Index ETF invests directly or indirectly in up to 150 equity securities of public issuers from countries within the region classified by FTSE as developed Europe, exhibiting relatively high and sustainable yields, as at the time of reconstitution or balancing.
