The funds are all actively managed and deliver a range of equity strategies including global growth, Canadian low volatility, US low volatility, US dividend, and global infrastructure exposures.

The launches come just six months after TDAM introduced 10 new ETFs on TSX including actively managed equity, fixed income, and real estate funds.

The funds

The TD Active Global Equity Growth ETF (TGGR CN) is benchmarked against the MSCI ACWI Index and comes with a management fee of 0.65%.

The fund seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing in common stocks of companies worldwide that have strong franchises and capital allocation policies. Security selection focuses on an issuer’s ability to create shareholder value by generating and reinvesting free cash flow.

The TD Q Canadian Low Volatility ETF (TCLV CN) is benchmarked against the MSCI Canada Index and comes with a management fee of 0.30%.

The fund seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing in Canadian common stocks while seeking to reduce portfolio volatility compared to the broad market.

The TD Q US Low Volatility ETF (TULV CN) is benchmarked against the MSCI USA Index and comes with a management fee of 0.30%.

It too seeks long-term capital appreciation but invests in US common stocks while also seeking to reduce portfolio volatility compared to the broad market.

The TD Active US Enhanced Dividend ETF (TUED CN) is benchmarked against the S&P 500 Index and comes with a management fee of 0.65%.

The fund seeks to earn income and generate moderate capital growth by investing primarily in US dividend-paying common stocks. Non-dividend-paying companies may account for up to 15% of the portfolio. Security selection focuses on an issuer’s ability to create shareholder value by generating and reinvesting free cash flow. The ETF may write covered call options in a bid to boost its income.

The TD Active Global Infrastructure Equity ETF (TINF CN) is benchmarked against the S&P Global Infrastructure Index and comes with a management fee of 0.65%.

This fund seeks to earn income and achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing in common stocks, equity-linked notes, convertible securities, and preferred shares of companies worldwide that own or operate infrastructure assets. Security selection is driven by a bottom-up approach that seeks to identify companies with strong, sustainable growth from revenues, earnings, cash-flows, or assets. Emphasis is placed on stability of fundamentals, quality of management, and financial strength.

Robert Vanderhooft, Chief Investment Officer, TDAM, commented, “In celebration of the 30th anniversary of ETFs in Canada, we’re bolstering our commitment to Canadian investors with five new ETFs. These additions to our ETF line-up inspire greater choice, flexibility, and opportunity in the growing Canadian ETF market. As always, we provide innovative solutions that may help investors achieve their investment goals.”
