UCSH.U provides a U.S. dollar savings vehicle with daily liquidity, monthly income and a competitive interest rate

TORONTO – January 18, 2024 – Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. (“Horizons ETFs” or the “Manager”) is pleased to announce the launch of the Horizons USD High Interest Savings ETF (“UCSH.U” or the “ETF”). Units of the ETF will begin trading today on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”).

UCSH.U seeks to maximize monthly income for unitholders while preserving capital and liquidity by investing primarily in high interest U.S. dollar deposit accounts with Canadian banks. In addition, the monthly income provided by the ETF is distributed in U.S. dollars while offering an interest rate that is expected to be competitive with other U.S. dollar high-interest savings vehicles.

Whether it’s to invest in U.S.-listed companies, cross-border shopping and travel or to have exposure to the world’s most popular currency, Canadians have significant U.S. dollar holdings,” said Rohit Mehta, President and CEO of Horizons ETFs. “With the launch of UCSH.U, we’re excited to offer Canadians a way to make use of their USD today and into the future with monthly distributions at a competitive yield, alongside daily liquidity for when you need it most.”    

UCSH.U is the most recent addition to Horizons ETFs’ suite of cash alternative and money market ETF vehicles, which includes the Horizons High Interest Savings ETF (“CASH”), one of Canada’s largest and most popular Canadian dollar cash alternative ETFs, with more than $4 billion in assets under management (“AUM”). Combined with the Manager’s other cash alternative and money market ETFs, the total AUM is more than $8 billion, making it one of the largest suites of its kind in Canada.   

Horizons ETFs has positioned itself as a leader in bringing innovative cash management solutions to market, including the launch of the first ETFs in Canada to provide exposure exclusively to short-term Canadian and U.S. treasury bills, back in 2023,” said Mr. Mehta. “With UCSH.U, our suite now offers investors a way to earn monthly income on U.S. dollar cash deposits, at a time when the U.S. Federal Reserve’s rate is at a 22-year high.”

UCSH.U is not covered by the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government deposit insurer.

The ETF has closed its initial offering of units and will begin trading today on the TSX when the market opens this morning.
