Horizons Active Floating Rate Bond ETF Wins Best Fixed Income ETF at 2013 Morningstar Canadian Investment Awards

Horizons Active Floating Rate Bond ETF Wins Best Fixed Income ETF at 2013 
Morningstar Canadian Investment Awards 
TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. 
("Horizons ETFs") is proud to announce that the Horizons Active Floating Rate 
Bond ETF ("HFR") won the Best Fixed Income ETF Award at the 19(th) Annual 
Morningstar Canadian Investment Awards last night. HFR is an actively managed 
ETF sub-advised by Fiera Capital Corporation ("Fiera"), one of the largest 
fixed income managers in Canada. 
"It's very gratifying to see the ETF industry receiving increased recognition 
at such a prestigious event," said Howard Atkinson, President of Horizons ETFs 
and Chair of the Canadian ETF Association. "Being nominated for, and winning a 
Morningstar Award is one of the highest honours in the investment industry." 
"Fiera is very proud to be associated with Horizons ETFs, a strong and 
credible partner. Fiera's renowned investment management expertise and the 
exceptional distribution network behind Horizons ETFs together represent a 
truly winning combination," said François Bourdon, Associate Chief Investment 
Officer and Vice President, Asset Allocation and Fixed Income, at Fiera. 
Horizons ETFs had four nominations in two different categories. In the fixed 
income category, in addition to winning for HFR, Horizons ETFs was also 
nominated for the Horizons Active High Yield Bond ETF. The winner of the Best 
Fixed Income ETF Award was selected by a panel of jurors from the ETF analyst 
community. 
HFR is designed to generate income that is consistent with prevailing 
short-term corporate bond yields while stabilizing the market value of the ETF 
from the effects of interest rate fluctuations. The ETF invests in a portfolio 
of Canadian debt securities and hedges the portfolio's interest rate risk to 
generally maintain a portfolio duration of less than two years. 
"We believe that this award validates the importance of active management in 
fixed income," said Mr. Atkinson. "HFR gives investors, regardless of 
portfolio size, access to top-tier professional management at a low fee. 
Active ETFs have the potential to outperform their benchmarks on a 
risk-adjusted basis, which is clearly demonstrated by HFR's track record." 
Horizons ETFs was also nominated in the Best Specialty ETF category for the 
Horizons Seasonal Rotation ETF ("HAC") and the Horizons Morningstar Hedge Fund 
Index ETF ("HHF"). 
"Our corporate tagline is 'ETF Solutions for Every Investor,' which expresses 
our mission to democratize the Canadian investment landscape," said Mr. 
Atkinson. "HAC and HHF are perfect examples of ETFs that provide investors 
with low-cost, flexible exposure to diversification and total return 
strategies which have traditionally only been available to institutional or 
accredited investors."
