TORONTO, June 14, 2023 – Hamilton Capital Partners Inc. (“Hamilton ETFs“) is pleased to announce the launch of the Hamilton Utilities Yield Maximizer ETF (“UMAX“). UMAX seeks to deliver attractive monthly income, while providing exposure to a portfolio of utility services companies’ equity securities with an active covered call strategy.

UMAX has closed the offering of its initial Class E units. Units of the ETF will begin trading on Thursday, June 15, 2023 on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) under the ticker symbol “UMAX”.

Attractive yield

“We are excited to introduce our latest yield maximizer ETF, UMAX, for investors seeking higher monthly income. With an initial target yield of 13%+, UMAX is the highest yielding utilities ETF in Canada[1], and provides exposure to a portfolio of Canada’s largest utility services companies with an innovative active covered call strategy to enhance monthly income and reduce volatility. We believe UMAX is an attractive complement to our Hamilton Canadian Financials Yield Maximizer ETF (ticker: HMAX), which is the highest yielding financials ETF in Canada[2], and has already grown to over $350 million in AUM since it was launched in January. The covered call strategy for both UMAX and HMAX will be overseen by Nick Piquard, a well-known top covered call portfolio manager in Canada and a recent addition to the Hamilton ETFs team,” said Pat Sommerville, Senior Partner and Head of Business Development at Hamilton ETFs.
