Canada has led G7 nations in economic growth so far this year, and our domestic stock market is finally starting to
catch up to the positive economic news.
Now may be an excellent time for investors to re-examine the Canadian equity exposure in their portfolios. However,
Canadian equity products, whether they are actively or passively managed, generally tend to be very similar.
Fortunately, Horizons ETFs offers an alternative to that approach, thanks to our newest ETF – the Horizons
Inovestor Canadian Equity Index ETF (“INOC”).
Designed by Montreal-based Inovestor Inc., INOC seeks to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance
of the Nasdaq Inovestor Canada Index (“the Index”) net of expenses. The Index seeks to hold 25 Canadian stocks
with a strong likelihood of generating positive returns. The Index uses a comprehensive stock selection criteria that
is widely used by advisors from across Canada.
Please join us for a cocktail hour and presentation with Pascal Lefrancois, the President and Founder of
Inovestor Inc., who will discuss how the methodology behind INOC can potentially help you to optimize your
Canadian equity exposure by delivering higher returns with lower risk.
Topics will include:
- What are the best 25 Canadian stocks to own for 2018, according to Inovestor?
- The limits of indexing in Canadian equities
- What is Economic Value Added (EVA) and why is it often an overlooked metric?
- The Horizons Inovestor Canadian Equity Index ETF (INOC)
