This ETF provides high monthly distributions and the opportunity for capital gains through an investment in an actively managed portfolio of large cap global Technology companies selected by Brompton, complemented by a proprietary covered call program.

Our PM team first uses top-down analysis to identify attractive sub-sectors. Rigorous fundamental analysis focuses the portfolio on 15 to 20 global Technology companies which offer a combination of growth and value characteristics. The PMs then actively set the level of covered call writing, with the goal of optimizing distributable cash and total returns.

Why Invest in Technology?

  • Tech sector is profitable, with minimal debt, and significant free cash flow
  • Under-represented sector in the Canadian equity market; global Technology equities provide diversification benefits
  • Long term trends are supportive of Technology equities

This ETF is for Investors who are:

  • Seeking stable monthly cash distributions.
  • Seeking opportunity for capital appreciation and lower overall volatility of portfolio returns than would otherwise be experienced by owning securities of technology companies directly.
  • Can handle the ups and downs of the stock market.

Tax Allocation

The following information is applicable to holders who, for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada), are resident in Canada and hold trust units as capital property. If this is not the case, a tax advisor should be consulted.

Holders of trust units outside of a RRSP, DPSP, RRIF, RESP or TFSA should expect to receive a T3 slip from their investment dealer. T3 supplementary slips will indicate Investment Income in Box 26, Foreign Non-Business Income in Box 25, Capital Gains in Box 21 and Dividend Income in Box 23 and Box 49. Dividend income is subject to the standard gross up and federal dividend tax credit rules.

The return of capital component is a non-taxable amount that serves to reduce the adjusted cost base of the Fund units and is reported in Box 42.
