Harvest Portfolios Group (Harvest) has completed the initial offering of Class A Units of the Harvest Clean Energy ETF which is now trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) under the ticker symbol: HCLN:TSX. As Canada’s first TSX listed clean energy ETF, this new fund is designed to provide Canadian investors access to the developing clean energy sector.
The Harvest Clean Energy ETF investment objective is to provide Unitholders with the opportunity for capital appreciation. The Harvest Clean Energy ETF primarily invests in issuers that are engaged in clean energy related businesses that are listed on a regulated stock exchange in select North American, Asian or European countries.
“We are very excited to launch this unique and low cost Clean Energy ETF in Canada. This is an exciting and growing space, an area that is getting the proper political and societal attention it needs as more Canadians look to environmental factors when investing. There are large sources of Government and Private capital flowing into this space at unprecedented levels which we see continuing to grow into the future,” says Michael Kovacs, President and CEO of Harvest. “With the changes going on in Energy generation, the future is definitely Clean.”
