Desjardins launches initial suite of seven ETFs

The Desjardins Canada Multifactor-Controlled Volatility ETF (DFC) tracks the Scientific Beta Canada Multifactor-Controlled Volatility Index, representing the performance of Canadian equity securities which have been weighted to amplify exposure to a selection of equity market risk factors – value, momentum, size and low volatility. The fund has management fees of 0.50%. The Desjardins USA Multifactor-Controlled Volatility ETF (DFU) tracks the Scientific Beta USA Multifactor-Controlled Volatility Index, representing the performance of US equity securities which have employed a similar weighting methodology to DFC’s underlying index. The fund has management fees of 0.50%. Two more Desjardins multifactor ETFs, the Desjardins Developed ex-USA ex-Canada Multifactor-Controlled Volatility ETF and Desjardins Emerging Markets Multifactor-Controlled Volatility ETF, are also anticipated to commence trading by the end of Q2 2017.
