The ETF offers investors a moderate level of income as well as capital preservation with the potential for growth. TD One-Click Moderate ETF Portfolio has a target asset mix of 60% equities and 40% fixed-income. The ETF aims to generate long-term capital growth while providing the opportunity to earn income. TD One-Click Aggressive ETF Portfolio has a target asset mix of 90% equities and 10% fixed-income. The ETF is meant to generate long-term capital growth with the potential for earning a modest level of income.

All three ETFs have a management fee of 0.25%. The ETFs are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

BMO boosts its fund lineup

Toronto-based BMO Investments Inc. has added three funds to its product shelf.

BMO Sustainable Opportunities Canadian Equity Fund invests in an all-cap portfolio of high-growth Canadian companies that have demonstrated a clear commitment to sustainability.

BMO Low Volatility U.S. Equity ETF Fund focuses on defensive sectors and Canadian equities with a lower sensitivity to market movements, thereby offering investors the potential for long-term capital appreciation.

BMO Target Education 2040 Portfolio is the latest addition to BMO’s suite of education funds. As a target-date fund, it provides investors with an opportunity for capital appreciation by investing primarily in a diversified mix of mutual funds and ETFs until the target date of June 30, 2040. As the target date approaches, the fund will gradually shift its asset mix from an exposure balanced among Canadian and global equities and fixed-income securities to an exposure that is primarily Canadian and global fixed-income securities and cash equivalents.

BMO also released the following U.S.-dollar versions of three ETF portfolios: BMO USD Income ETF Portfolio, BMO USD Conservative ETF Portfolio and BMO USD Balanced ETF Portfolio.
