The ETFs, available in denominations of both CAD and USD, are detailed below:

 The ETFs commence trading on the Neo Exchange on the dates shown against each.

The ETFs will be advised by women-run investment firms with good reputations in the investment sector, as follows:

· Emerge EMPWR Sustainable Dividend Equity ETF – Catherine Avery Investment Management LLC;

· Emerge EMPWR Sustainable Emerging Markets Equity ETF – Channing Global Advisors, LLC

· Emerge EMPWR Sustainable Select Growth Equity ETF – Grace Capital Corporation; and

· Emerge EMPWR Sustainable Global Core Equity ETF – Zevin Asset Management.

“It is no secret that female representation in the investment management industry is a fraction of what it can and should be,” says Lisa Langley, President & CEO of Emerge Capital Management. “We are launching EMPWR to support and advocate for female managers and to inspire new women portfolio managers to join the industry.”

Emerge would apply its stringent environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria to the recommendations provided to it by the above women-led investment firms.

“The future of capital markets will likely be significantly influenced by global sustainability issues as the world transitions to a low carbon economy and experiences profound social changes,” adds Langley. “EMPWR’s platform will provide an investment process run by accomplished women that focuses on factors of sustainable innovation, and growth.”
