Dynamic Funds and iShares launch active ETFs in Canada


Dynamic Funds and BlackRock Asset Management Canada have formed a partnership to bring a suite of actively managed exchange-traded funds (ETFs) to Canadian investors.

Dynamic Funds’ actively managed investment strategies will power the active ETF line-up.
"This ETF line-up will make active management easily accessible for advisors and investors. A growing number of advisors and investors are seeking the advantages of active management but in an ETF structure that may better suit their needs," says Jordy Chilcott, president and CEO, Dynamic Funds. "By collaborating with BlackRock Canada, together we can bring a unique approach to the ETF marketplace, one where we think the growth of active solutions is on the rise."
"With this partnership, Canadians can get the best of both worlds: Dynamic's active investment expertise within a line-up of ETFs backed by the quality and value of iShares and our two decades of global leadership in the industry," says Warren Collier, head of iShares, BlackRock Canada. "We're proud and excited to team up with Dynamic Funds to launch these new active ETFs, which we believe will help advisors and investors access an expanding world of investing opportunities."
Dynamic and BlackRock Canada are aiming to launch the ETFs in the first quarter of 2017.
