Investment Objectives
The ETF seeks to provide long-term capital growth by replicating, to the extent possible, the performance of the applicable Index, net of expenses. The index is comprised of constituents of the S&P/TSX Global Mining Index with GICS classification 15104030 Gold. Under normal market conditions, the Fund will primarily invest in equity securities issued by international issuers participating in the mining sector. The Fund is intended to confer on investors in one convenient security a proportionate share of economic benefits similar to those, which an investor could obtain through individual investments in the shares of each of the S&P/TSE Canadian Gold Index.
