Dynamic Funds and BlackRock Canada’s iShares expand active ETF lineup


Dynamic Funds and BlackRock Asset Management Canada Limited have launched three new actively managed exchange-traded funds (ETFs), representing tactical fixed income, US mid-cap equity, and global financial services exposures.

Dynamic iShares Active ETFs combine Dynamic’s style of active portfolio management with BlackRock’s industry-leading ETF execution and operational expertise.
“We are pleased to expand the Dynamic iShares Active ETF lineup into other areas of the market where we believe active management can generate a discerning and differentiated investment outcome for investors,” says Mark Brisley, Managing Director, Dynamic Funds.  “Since our partnership with BlackRock Canada began earlier this year, we continue to hear from a growing number of financial advisors who value the unique benefits that active ETFs can bring to client portfolios.”
“We are thrilled to build upon the success of our partnership with Dynamic Funds with the launch of these three new active ETFs,” says Pat Chiefalo, Managing Director, Head of iShares, BlackRock Canada.  “As the complexity of the investment landscape continues to increase, investors are seeking diverse solutions to meet their investment goals; we believe these new ETFs will help to satisfy that demand.”
Dynamic iShares Active Tactical Bond ETF (DXB) seeks to provide interest income and long-term capital growth by investing in a diversified portfolio of primarily North American fixed income securities.  The ETF will provide exposure to an active investment strategy managed by Christine Horoyski.  
Dynamic iShares Active US Mid-Cap ETF (DXZ) seeks to provide long-term capital growth by investing primarily in equity securities of US- based companies with mid-capitalisation. The ETF will provide exposure to an active investment strategy managed by Tom Dicker and Steven Hall.
