HORIZONS ETFs SURPASSES $30 BILLION IN ASSETS UNDER MANAGEMENT

Horizons ETFs reaches major asset milestone and one of top spots for new ETF in-flows in 2023

TORONTO – January 10, 2024 – Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. (“Horizons ETFs” or the “Manager”), a member of Mirae Asset Financial Group (“Mirae Asset”), announced today that its assets under management (“AUM”) recently surpassed $30 billion – a financial milestone that entrenches its position as one of Canada’s largest and fastest growing ETF providers.

In 2023, Horizons ETFs saw in-flows of approximately $5.5 billion, contributing to a total AUM increase of more than $7.6 billion – the most significant year of AUM growth in the Manager’s history. In addition, more than $1.8 billion of those in-flows were raised in ETFs launched by the Manager last year, making Horizons ETFs one of the top providers for total assets raised in new ETFs launched in 2023. 

It has been thrilling and fulfilling to lead one of the biggest growth spurts in Horizons ETFs’ history. I am tremendously optimistic about what’s in store for the year ahead,” said Rohit Mehta, President and CEO of Horizons ETFs. “In particular, seeing how our new ETFs have resonated with investors, from our first-in-Canada ETFs that provide exposure exclusively to short-term treasury bills to our bigger and bolder approach to asset allocation investing, has bolstered our resolve to continue to deliver more product innovation and disruption throughout 2024.”

Launched in 2005, Horizons ETFs is among Canada’s first home-grown ETF providers. In 2011, the Manager was acquired by South Korea’s Mirae Asset Global Investments, one of the world’s largest asset managers and part of Mirae Asset Financial Group, which manages more than CAD $710 billion in assets across 19 countries and markets. Since its acquisition, the Manager has grown rapidly, with assets increasing nine-fold since 2011.

The combination of the global strength of the Mirae Asset brand and its vast network and insights, coupled with our local expertise and longstanding innovation within the Canadian ETF marketplace, have been the key contributors to our success and ultimately, to our investors’ successes as well,” said Mr. Mehta. “While I’m proud of what we’ve achieved to date, I remain focused on our greater future: continuing to grow our market share, product shelf and our value proposition for Canadians.”  

To commemorate its $30 billion AUM milestone, Horizons ETFs made donations to multiple charities operating across Canada, including to Second Harvest, Fred Victor and La Moisson de Montréal. In addition, employees also participated in additional charitable actions in support of their local communities.
