Our comprehensive lineup includes a diverse offering of actively managed and factor-based ETFs, as well as innovative options such as liquid alternatives and, as of this year, a bitcoin ETF and an Ethereum ETF. The name changes announced today are just part of our commitment to the continued enhancement and modernization of our ETF offering and the entire CI GAM lineup."

Risk rating changes
The following risk rating changes are effective immediately and are based on the risk classification methodology mandated by the Canadian Securities Administrators to determine the risk level of mutual funds, including ETFs. CI GAM reviews the risk rating for each of the funds it manages at least on an annual basis, as well as when a fund undergoes a material change. These changes are the result of an annual review and are not the result of any changes to the investment objectives, strategies or management of the funds.
