WisdomTree to launch ETFs in Canada


US exchange traded fund and product provider WisdomTree Investments has established an office in Toronto, and pending Canadian regulatory approval, will distribute a suite of Canadian ETFs.

“Canada represents an exciting opportunity for WisdomTree. As a pure-play ETF provider, WisdomTree sees great potential to help grow the ETF market and to deliver our innovative and highly differentiated products to Canadian investors,” says WisdomTree CEO and President Jonathan Steinberg. “We look forward to entering Canada, working with the financial community and offering new ETF choices to Canadians.”

The Company intends to introduce ETFs which will track the following Canadian dollar-based WisdomTree indexes: the WisdomTree International Quality Dividend Growth Index CAD, the WisdomTree Europe CAD-Hedged Equity Index, the WisdomTree US Quality Dividend Growth Index CAD and the WisdomTree US High Dividend Index CAD.

The Company has formed WisdomTree Asset Management Canada and has named Raj Lala as Head of WisdomTree Canada. Raj was previously Executive Vice President, Retail Markets, at Fiera Capital. The Company also named Lara Misner as Chief Compliance Officer of WisdomTree Canada. Lara was previously Chief Compliance Officer of Purpose Investments Inc.
