Types of Mosaic ETFs

By combining index-tracking (or passive), smart-beta and active strategies, investors can benefit from exposure to an array of favourable characteristics, which can complement each other.

  • Active

    These strategies bring together the value-added potential of professionally managed investment exposure with the cost-effective characteristics of ETFs. Includes constant oversight, including tactical positioning.

  • Smart Beta

    Constructed using either objective factor-based, fundamental and/or technical analysis to select stocks from a benchmark or a customized index.

  • Covered Call

    Designed with the potential to provide additional income from the option premiums earned, while offering modest share price appreciation and a cushion in down markets.

  • Index-tracking

    These offer passive tracking of an index providing exposure to broad markets with no human oversight or rules-based methodology.
