A Better Way to Access Fixed Income Markets

Horizons Active Income ETFs

Horizons Active Fixed Income ETFs are sub-advised by some of Canada’s leading fixed income managers and comprise a diversified suite of 12 ETFs. Because they are actively managed, they have the potential to achieve better risk-adjusted returns and generate higher levels of income, compared to passive indexing or higher-fee mutual funds.
