Horizons ETFs launches 4th edition of Biggest Winner ETF Competition 
Simulation allows investors to learn about ETF investing and win cash prizes 
TORONTO, May 20, 2014 /CNW/ - Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. 
("Horizons ETFs") and National Bank Direct Brokerage ("NBDB") are pleased to 
announce the launch of the 4(th) edition of the Biggest Winner Trading 
Competition, a simulated investment contest that provides Canadian investors 
with the opportunity to learn about exchange traded funds (ETFs) in a 
risk-free environment and to compete for cash prizes. 
Eligible registrants may open a fantasy brokerage account, which begins with a 
balance of $100,000 in notional Canadian dollars (no actual money will be 
traded). Registrants can then use these fantasy funds to make simulated 
purchases and sales, of the 70 ETFs offered in Canada by Horizons ETFs and its 
affiliates, at any time, throughout the regular trading day. 
Starting at 9:30 a.m. EST on May 20, 2014, the Biggest Winner Trading 
Competition will run for six weeks until 4:00 p.m. EST on June 27, 2014. There 
will be a grand prize of $7,500 for the competitor with the highest six-week 
cumulative return. The runner-up will be awarded $2,500; in addition, six 
weekly prizes of $500 will be awarded to each of the best single week returns. 
"The goal of this competition is education, and there is no better tool for 
teaching investors how ETFs work then by letting them buy and sell ETFs in a 
real-time simulated brokerage account," said Howard Atkinson, President of 
Horizons ETFs. "With about 65 per cent of the contestants in Biggest Winner 3 
having never traded ETFs before, it's clear our simulated low-cost and 
risk-free competition is reaching the broader investing public and advancing 
their understanding of ETFs." 
Nearly 4,000 Canadians participated in the previous three Biggest Winner 
Trading Competitions. NBDB will once again be the exclusive sponsor of this 
year's competition. 
"We are pleased to watch this competition expand its reach in investor 
education year-over-year," stated Nancy Paquet, NBDB President. "If you want 
to be even more prepared, NBDB offers seminars and webinars on different types 
of investments, including ETFs." 
Horizons ETFs offers a broad family of 70 ETFs that provide exposure to a 
range of asset classes and markets, including the largest suite of leveraged, 
inverse and actively managed ETFs in Canada. 
These ETFs include investment tools with solutions for a variety of market 
conditions and investment objectives. There are plain-vanilla index ETFs 
offering exposure to broad markets or specific industry sectors. For tactical 
traders, there are leveraged, inverse and volatility ETFs. 
For investors seeking to potentially improve risk-adjusted returns, there are 
actively managed ETFs, sub-advised by some of Canada's leading portfolio 
managers, including asset classes such as fixed income, dividend and 
alternative investments. 
"We're passionate about helping investors achieve their investment goals in a 
low-cost and diversified manner," said Mr. Atkinson. "Depending on the 
investor's risk appetite and objectives, and his or her desire for an active 
or passive strategy, Horizons ETFs strives to offer portfolio (or investment) 
solutions for every investor."
