Emerge Canada Inc. (“Emerge”) has launched its new proprietary EMPWR program today. EMPWR is available in both Canada and the U.S. and includes separate account strategies, mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”). EMPWR is designed to support and highlight women-led investment managers while promoting sustainable investing.
Emerge is launching the following five ETFs in Canada (each, an “EMPWR ETF” and collectively, the “EMPWR ETFs”), including Canadian dollar-denominated exchange-traded units (“CAD Units”) and U.S.-dollar-denominated exchange-traded units (“USD Units”) of each EMWPR ETF, and five ETFs in the U.S. The CAD Units and the USD Units of Emerge EMPWR Sustainable Dividend Equity ETF, Emerge EMPWR Sustainable Global Core Equity ETF and Emerge EMPWR Sustainable Emerging Markets Equity ETF will be available for trading on Neo Exchange Inc. when markets open today, and the CAD Units and the USD Units of Emerge EMPWR Sustainable Select Growth Equity ETF and Emerge EMPWR Unified Sustainable Equity ETF will be available for trading on Neo Exchange Inc. when markets open tomorrow.
The EMPWR ETFs will provide Canadians with access to talented U.S. and Canadian-based investment managers. Emerge has retained Emerge Capital Management Inc. (“ECM”) to act as sub-adviser of the EMPWR ETFs and ECM has retained the following firms to provide advice to it in respect of certain of the EMPWR ETFs:
in respect of Emerge EMPWR Sustainable Dividend Equity ETF, Catherine Avery Investment Management LLC (“CAIM”); in respect of Emerge EMPWR Sustainable Emerging Markets Equity ETF, Channing Global Advisors, LLC (“Channing”); in respect of Emerge EMPWR Sustainable Select Growth Equity ETF, Grace Capital Corporation (“Grace Capital”); and in respect of Emerge EMPWR Sustainable Global Core Equity ETF, Zevin Asset Management (“Zevin”). CAIM, Channing, Grace Capital and Zevin are women-run investment firms that have strong track records in the investment sector. Emerge applies its stringent environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) criteria to the recommendations provided to it by CAIM, Channing, Grace Capital and Zevin. Emerge EMPWR Unified Sustainable Equity ETF employs a manager-of-manager approach and invests in a selection of equity securities that are held by the other EMPWR ETFs.
In Canada, the number of women in senior levels in asset management sits at just 14%.1 Emerge, a leading transnational investment fund manager, is introducing its new proprietary program, EMPWR, to help change this.
“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.”
Jos Schmitt, NEO President and SVP of Global Listings for Cboe Global Markets, said: “Today marks our first dual launch of ETF strategies on both sides of the border – an exciting milestone enabling Emerge to leverage the combined reach of Cboe Global Markets in both Canada, on the Neo Exchange, and the US, on the Cboe BZX Exchange. We couldn’t be more excited to reach this milestone with Emerge, a firm that has proven to be an innovative early adopter, time and again. The EMPWR suite of funds showcases the talent of an all-women portfolio management team with a focus on ESG and sustainability – a double win for socially-conscious and responsible investors.”
The EMPWR platform offers robust and sustainable solutions that integrate ESG factors into the investment philosophy. “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,” says Langley. “EMPWR’s platform will provide an investment process run by accomplished women that focuses on factors of sustainable innovation, and growth.”

My hope is that the company gets current with their SEC reporting and maintains the current share structure. Unfortunately, the price will not move until the B/A spread gets within a reasonable range..
