Fund Objectives

The BMO S&P/TSX Equal Weight Banks Index ETF has been designed to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of a Canadian large-cap banks index. Currently, the BMO S&P/TSX Equal Weight Banks Index ETF seeks to replicate the performance of the S&P/TSX Equal Weight Diversified Banks Index. The investment strategy of the BMO S&P/TSX Equal Weight Banks Index ETF is currently to invest and hold the Constituent Securities of the S&P/TSX Equal Weight Diversified Banks Index in the same proportion as they are reflected in the S&P/TSX Equal Weight Diversified Banks Index or hold securities intended to replicate the performance of the Index.
