Reasons to Consider UTIL

Targeted Exposure

Going beyond traditional Utilities exposure to include Pipelines and Telecom companies, UTIL offers investors the potential for consistent income through dividend payments from high dividend-paying Canadian utility service companies listed on the TSX.

High Dividend Focus

UTIL is a dividend-focused ETF providing exposure by tracking the underlying index (currently the Solactive Canadian Utility Services High Dividend Index) to TSX-listed high dividend-paying utility service companies, that offer historically higher yields relative to sectors such as Information Technology and Consumer Goods.

Defensive Industries

UTIL includes utility, pipeline, and telecommunication companies, historically known for their defensive characteristics, providing relative stability and consistent dividends even during volatile market conditions.

Investment Objective

UTIL seeks to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of an index that seeks to provide exposure to the performance of TSX-listed high dividend paying utility services companies. Currently, UTIL seeks to replicate the performance of the Solactive Canadian Utility Services High Dividend Index, net of expenses.
