PFL can help investors reduce risk in portfolios and benefit from higher yields in a rising rate environment

TORONTO, July 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Invesco Canada Ltd. ("Invesco") today announced that effective immediately, the full 0.20% management fee on the Invesco 1-3 Year Laddered Floating Rate Note Index ETF (PFL) has been waived until at least August 31, 2023.

"Our clients are looking for ETF solutions like PFL that offer intraday liquidity and have low sensitivity to the rising interest-rate environment relative to the overall Canadian broad bond market1. The strategy of PFL may offer an opportunity for investors to preserve capital by helping to reduce risk in portfolios while providing an attractive yield compared to holding cash," said Pat Chiefalo, Senior Vice President, Head ETFs & Index Strategies, Canada.

PFL currently holds high-quality AAA-rated and AA-rated2 short-term investment-grade government, agencies or provincial floating rate notes. The coupons paid by these holdings reset regularly resulting in higher coupon payments as interest rates rise. The laddering structure of PFL and short duration of underlying securities may help to reduce the interest-rate sensitivity of a portfolio in the current environment. As a fixed income ETF, PFL offers investors a potential low risk3 investment while interest rates continue to increase.

PFL seeks to replicate, to the extent reasonably possible and before fees and expenses, the performance of the FTSE Canada 1-3 Year Laddered Floating Rate Note Index. The index is designed to measure the return of a 1-3 year floating rate note laddered basket of Canadian government, agencies and provinces investment-grade floating-rate notes.
