ETF: Horizons Equal Weight Canada Banks Index ETF
Previous Management Fee*: 0.30%
New Management Fee*: 0.25%
*Plus applicable sales tax
The investment objective of the ETF remains unchanged. HEWB seeks to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the Solactive Equal Weight Canada Banks Index (Total Return) (the “Index”), net of expenses.

HEWB is part of Horizons ETFs family of Total Return Index (“TRI”) ETFs. All of the Horizons TRI ETFs are part of a single, multi-class corporate structure, which permits the ETFs to improve operational efficiency, aggregate all future gains and losses on both the income and capital accounts and substantially reduce the likelihood of distributions.
