Fund Objectives

The fund seeks to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the Solactive Equal Weight US Bank Index Canadian Dollar Hedged (the "Index"), net of expenses. The investment strategy of the fund is to invest in and hold the constituent securities of the Index in the same proportion as they are reflected in the Index. The Index consists of large capitalization United States banks. Each security in the Index is allocated an equal weight rather than a market capitalization weight. The U.S. dollar exposure is hedged to the Canadian dollar.
