The following ETFs won individual awards:

The Lipper Fund Awards are calculated based on a comparison with other ETFs in the same Canadian Investment Funds Standards Committee (“CIFSC”) category. The 2023 Lipper Fund Awards are given to funds that deliver consistently strong risk-adjusted performance relative to their peers, for various time periods ending July 31, 2023.
“We’re honored to once again have a multitude of ETFs recognized by the Lipper Fund Awards,” said Rohit Mehta, President and CEO of Horizons ETFs. “These wins are a reflection of our commitment to innovation, quality and value, which underpin everything that we strive to do at Horizons ETFs. As one of Canada’s first ETF providers, we’re proud of our legacy and remain committed to building and delivering exceptional funds for Canadian investors.”
HXH received a 2023 Lipper Fund Award in the Canadian Dividend & Income Equity category for the three-year award period, ranking first out of 17 ETFs eligible for consideration.
“Getting more from your equity investments has been a major theme for investors in 2023, which makes us particularly proud of HXH’s first-ever recognition by the Lipper Fund Awards this year in the Canadian Dividend and Income Equity category,” said Mr. Mehta. “In addition, HXH’s tax-efficient corporate class structure offers a key differentiator from other dividend-focused ETFs available in the Canadian marketplace, today.”
HFR and HAF, sub-advised by Fiera Capital, were both recognized in the 2023 Lipper Fund Awards. HFR received a 2023 Lipper Fund Award in the Canadian Short Term Fixed Income category for the ten-year award period, ranking first out of 14 ETFs eligible for consideration. HAF received a 2023 Lipper Fund Award in the Multi-Sector Fixed Income category for the three-year award period, ranking first out of 14 ETFs eligible for consideration.
“Active management in the fixed income space can make a difference for investors, as HFR and HAF – sub-advised by a leading Canadian fixed income manager, Fiera Capital – have proven over their more-than-a-decade of performance,” said Mr. Mehta. “With income and bonds top of mind for many, we’re confident that these ETFs will continue to deliver attractive yields and help advisors and investors navigate today’s fixed income environment for years to come.”
HCRE received a 2023 Lipper Fund Award in the Real Estate Equity category for the three-year award period, ranking first out of 11 ETFs eligible for consideration. HCRE was also recognized during the 2022 Lipper Fund Awards.
“Launched in 2019, HCRE has now been recognized by the Lipper Fund Awards for a second year in a row,” said Mr. Mehta. “Through its corporate class investment structure, HCRE offers investors a tax-efficient way to participate in the Canadian real estate investment trust market on a diversified basis through their stock portfolio.”
