Hamilton sets sights on financial-services innovation

Nearly a month after announcing an extensive revamp of its ETF lineup, Hamilton ETFs has announced a new addition that puts a thematic twist on its financial-sector focus.

Listed on the TSX under the ticker HFT, the Hamilton Financials Innovation ETF seeks long-term returns from an actively managed portfolio of companies that are innovating and supporting the financial-services industry through the use of data and technology.

“The technology-driven evolution of the financial sector is a powerful structural theme, offering significant long-term growth potential,” said Hamilton ETFs Managing Partner Rob Wessel in a statement.

“HFT is well suited for long term growth investors and those seeking portfolio diversification from limited overlap to more traditional sub-sectors like branch banking, insurance, and capital markets,” Wessel added.
