We believe that every investor, no matter how large or small, should have access to the best in portfolio management and asset classes at the lowest possible cost. We offer both short-term and long-term investment opportunities, to meet your varying needs, using the following principles.

Since we launched our first ETF, innovation has driven the creation of our investment strategies. It has allowed us to bring many “firsts” to the market and to be recognized as a leading ETF provider

We believe that every investor, big or small, should have the ability to access the best portfolio management techniques and the best asset classes the industry has to offer. With the advent of the ETF structure, all levels of active management and asset class exposure are available at a low cost.

Accessing somewhat illiquid asset classes, such as fixed income and alternatives doesn’t have to be limited to accredited or institutional investors. While some alternative investments take time accumulate or liquidate, or have other restrictions, the ETF structure allows an investor to invest in and trade these asset classes as easily as traditional stocks.

Education as Empowerment

Education is the foundation of effective ETF investing. In addition to bringing innovative investment solutions to market, we are committed to educating investors at all levels.

The more we can educate investors about the various types of features and benefits that an ETF can offer, the more investors are empowered to make the appropriate decisions for their portfolios.

Every year, we hold between 150 and 200 educational events for investors and financial advisors to keep them abreast of the evolutions in ETF investing. In 2009, we also launched HETFs University, a classroom and online library of education material which includes articles, podcasts and videos about the latest trends and innovations in ETF investing.

Horizons ETFs is a Member of Mirae Asset Global Investments. Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with an investment in exchange traded products managed by Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. (the "Horizons Exchange Traded Products"). The Horizons Exchange Traded Products are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. The prospectus contains important detailed information about the Horizons Exchange Traded Products. Please read the relevant prospectus before investing.

The Horizons Exchange Traded Products consist of the Horizons Index ETFs ("Index ETFs"), 2x Daily Bull and -2x Daily Bear ETFs ("2x Daily ETFs"), Inverse ETFs ("Inverse ETFs"), VIX ETFs (defined below) and active ETFs. The 2x Daily ETFs and certain other Horizons Exchange Traded Products use leveraged investment techniques that can magnify gains and losses and may result in greater volatility of returns. These Horizons Exchange Traded Products are subject to leverage risk and may be subject to aggressive investment risk and price volatility risk, which, where applicable, are described in their respective prospectuses. Each 2x Daily ETF seeks a return, before fees and expenses, that is either 200% or -200% of the performance of a specified underlying index, commodity or benchmark (the "Target") for a single day. Each Index ETF or Inverse ETF seeks a return that is 100% or -100%, respectively, of the performance of a Target. Due to the compounding of daily returns, a 2x Daily ETF's or Inverse ETF's returns over periods other than one day will likely differ in amount and possibly direction from the performance of their respective Target(s) for the same period. The Horizons Exchange Traded Products whose Target is the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index™ (the "VIX ETFs"), one of which is a 2x Daily ETF and one of which is an Index ETF, as described in their prospectus, are speculative investment tools that are not conventional investments. The VIX ETFs' Target is highly volatile. As a result, the VIX ETFs are not generally viewed as stand-alone long-term investments. Historically, the VIX ETFs' Target has tended to revert to a historical mean. As a result, the performance of the VIX ETFs' Target is expected to be negative over the longer term and neither the VIX ETFs nor their Target are expected to have positive long term performance. Investors should monitor their holdings, as frequently as daily, to ensure that they remain consistent with their investment strategies.

*The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in per unit value and reinvestment of all dividends or distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns. The rates of return shown in the table are not intended to reflect future values of the ETF or returns on investment in the ETF. Only the returns for periods of one year or greater are annualized returns.
