("Horizons ETFs") is proud to announce that four of its exchange traded funds ("ETFs") won "best" in their respective ETF categories at the 2019 Lipper Fund Awards from Refinitiv ("Lipper Fund Awards") ¹. In addition, Horizons ETFs also won a Canada ETF Award in the Best Bond ETF Group category². The following ETFs won individual awards: Horizons ETFs wins Five Lipper Fund Awards (CNW Group/Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc.) Horizons ETFs wins Five Lipper Fund Awards (CNW Group/Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc.) Horizons ETFs wins Five Lipper Fund Awards (CNW Group/Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc.) ETF Name HAL HAL 3 Years "The Lipper Fund Awards' recognition of these ETFs is a testament to their exceptional performance over their respective three and five-year periods," said Steve Hawkins, President and CEO of Horizons ETFs. "Year-over-year, the continuing validation of several of our active and passive ETFs is building a strong record of achievement and trust that resonates with investors." The Lipper Fund Awards are calculated based on a comparison with other ETFs in the same Canadian Investment Funds Standards Committee ("CIFSC") category. The 2019 Lipper Fund Awards are given to funds for delivering consistently strong risk-adjusted performance relative to their peers, for various time periods ending July 31, 2019. For both the three and five-year periods ending July 31, 2019, HAL received the 2019 Lipper Fund Award in the Canadian Dividend & Income Equity ETF category¹ – its first ever Lipper Fund Award achievements. For the three-year period, HAL ranked first out of 13 ETFs, and for the five-year period, HAL ranked first out of 11 ETFs eligible for consideration. "We are thrilled to have HAL recognized by the Lipper Funds Awards for its first time ever," said Mr. Hawkins. "The Guardian Capital team's blend of machine learning coupled with human expertise has built a fully discretionary portfolio that is providing investors with some of the best dividend and income producing Canadian equities within an active ETF wrapper. "  HAD received the 2019 Lipper Fund Award within the Canadian Fixed Income ETF category¹ for the five-year period, ranking first out of 12 ETFs eligible for consideration. This is the second time HAD has been recognized by the Lipper Fund Awards. "Fiera Capital is one of Canada's leading fixed income managers, and we are proud to have their active management supporting HAD," said Mr. Hawkins. "Their expert navigation of the Canadian investment grade bond universe has allowed it to become a trusted choice for investors looking for Canadian bond exposure. "  HFR received the 2019 Lipper Fund Award in the Canadian Short-Term Fixed Income ETF category¹ for the three-year period ending July 31, 2019, ranking first out of 23 ETFs eligible for consideration. "Once again, HFR has been recognized by the Lipper Fund Awards," said Mr. Hawkins. "HFR has been consistent in generating an attractive yield relative to other short-term fixed income strategies, while also being largely protected from interest rate movements." HXQ received the 2019 Lipper Fund Award in the U.S. Equity ETF category¹ for the three-year period ending July 31, 2019. In the ETF categories in which Horizons ETFs' funds ranked first, HXQ had the largest competitor pool: 35. "The NASDAQ, driven by technology-sector performance, has set new record highs over the past year. HXQ has allowed investors to capture that rise, with the added benefit of its novel total return strategy," said Mr. Hawkins. "Given the large selection of U.S. equity benchmark ETFs in Canada, we are particularly proud of HXQ's recognition by the Lipper Fund Awards as Canada's best U.S. Equity ETF." "For the second consecutive year, we have the honour of being selected as Canada's best bond ETF asset group provider," said Mr. Hawkins. "Horizons ETFs continues to provide best in class actively managed fixed income ETFs – and our repeat recognition with this award is testament to our dominance in this space."
