Claymore Investments, Inc. Launches New Canadian Bond ETF

Toronto Stock ExchangeImage via Wikipedia

Claymore Investments, Inc., on Nov. 19, 2009 announced the launching of the Claymore Advantaged Canadian Bond ETF (TSX: CAB.TO).

The fund is a fixed income exchange traded fund (ETF) which is designed to provide investors with a low cost, tax-efficient exposure to a diversified Canadian bond portfolio. The plan is for the fund to track the DLUX Capped Bond Index, a high-quality subset of the DEX Universe Bond Index.

In other words, the price and performance of the DEX DLUX Capped Bond Index ("the Index") will determine the return of the fund, net of fees and expenses.

To qualify for the DLUX indexes, securities must have a minimum issue size or amount outstanding of $300 million, credit ratings of A or higher, and annual trade-volume turnover of 25% or higher. The Index tracks Canadian investment grade Government and corporate bonds, with target exposure allocations of 60% and 40%, respectively. The fund will receive exposure to the bond securities underlying the Index through the use of a forward agreement with TD Global Finance.

"Bonds are a very important part of an investment portfolio for income and diversification purposes and CAB is a simple, low cost way to get exposure to bonds on a tax-efficient basis. The fund is structured to provide tax-efficient income, making it an optimal investment for non-registered or taxable accounts and we are excited to be partnering with DEX, the leader in Canadian fixed income indexes, to bring this product to the market" said Som Seif, President and CEO of Claymore.
