TORONTO, June 30, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NEO is proud to announce that Ninepoint Partners LP ("Ninepoint") is back for yet another launch on the NEO Exchange with today’s listing of the Ninepoint Target Income Fund, trading now under the symbol TIF.
The Ninepoint Target Income Fund seeks to provide unitholders with stable, monthly distributions and lower volatility than a direct investment in the broad equity markets by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of equity index-based investments that generates income, and using derivatives strategies to moderate the market volatility of those investments.
"We are excited to launch a timely new investment solution with our trusted partners at the NEO Exchange," said John Wilson, Co-CEO and Managing Director of Ninepoint Partners. "The current volatile market environment provides an opportunity to allocate to defensive equity income-based strategies like the Target Income Fund, which is highly liquid and offers a 6% target distribution1 with downside protection for investors."
Units of the Ninepoint Target Income Fund are now available for trading on the NEO Exchange, along with nine other Ninepoint ETFs. Investors can purchase units of the Fund through their usual investment channels, including discount brokerage platforms and full-service dealers.
