It all started with a cubicle and an idea in September 2005 in downtown Toronto. 

A team of financial visionaries wanted to create an ETF provider that did more than just replicate the returns of stock and bond indices. They wanted to give investors flexible, low-cost* exposure to numerous investment strategies and asset classes.

Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. has built a global reputation as a leading ETF innovator. We are currently the largest provider of actively managed ETF investment solutions in Canada. We are also the only provider of leveraged and inverse leveraged ETF investment solutions in the country.

Horizons ETFs has over CAD $9 billion in assets under management and 85 ETFs listed on major Canadian stock exchanges**.

Our line-up includes:

Active ETFs
ETFs that combine the benefits of an actively managed portfolio with the traditional advantages of ETFs – securities that trade like stocks, but with lower* costs than comparable mutual funds.

Benchmark ETFs
ETFs designed to efficiently track the performance of indices, currencies or commodities.

Leveraged, Inverse Leveraged & Volatility ETFs
ETFs designed to provide daily performance investment results that correspond to one times (1x) the inverse of their specified underlying index or benchmark; two times the daily performance or two times (2x) the inverse of the daily performance of their specified underlying index or benchmark; and ETFs designed to track the performance of market volatility.

* Relative to the average management fee of regular Canadian mutual fund classes..

Horizons ETFs is a Member of Mirae Asset Global Investments. 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 include our BetaPro Products which consist of our 2x Daily Bull and 2x Daily Bear ETFs ("2x Daily ETFs"), Inverse ETFs ("Inverse ETFs") and our VIX ETF (defined below). The 2x Daily ETFs and certain other BetaPro Products use leveraged investment techniques that can magnify gains and losses and may result in greater volatility of returns. These BetaPro 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 Inverse ETF seeks a return that is -100% 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, for the 2x Daily ETFs, possibly direction from the performance of their respective Target(s) for the same period. The BetaPro Product whose Target is the S&P 500 VIX Short-Term Futures Index™ (the "VIX ETF"), which is a (1x) VIX ETF, as described in the prospectus, is a speculative investment tool that is not a conventional investment. The VIX ETF’s Target is highly volatile. As a result, the VIX ETF is not generally viewed as stand-alone long-term investment. Historically, the VIX ETF’s 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 ETF nor its Target is 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.
