Mirae Asset Horizons ETFs Surpass CA$30 Billion in Assets Under Management

In the bustling world of Canadian finance, Mirae Asset Global Investments’ Canadian subsidiary, Horizons ETFs, achieved a noteworthy milestone. This success story began in November 2011 when Mirae Asset took the reins.

And has seen Horizons ETFs grow their assets under management to an impressive 30 billion Canadian dollars. The transformation from a modest CA$3 billion to a staggering CA$30.5 billion (approximately US$22.8 billion) is a testament to the company’s strategic vision and market acumen.

Horizons ETFs has expanded its portfolio significantly during this period. Originally offering 70 products, they now boast a diverse range of 121, catering to various investor needs and preferences.

The Canadian ETF Market: A Thriving Arena

Canada’s standing in the global ETF market is formidable, just behind the United States and Europe. According to ETFGI, a leading research and consultancy firm, the Canadian ETF market was valued at around CA$401 billion in November, with over 1,100 products listed. This vibrant market is largely dominated by major banks’ affiliated managers, who collectively hold more than half the market share.

In this competitive landscape, Horizons ETFs has emerged as a key player, ranking as the fourth-largest ETF manager in Canada by assets under management. This achievement is particularly noteworthy given the dominance of bank-affiliated managers and the presence of major international players like Vanguard, the largest asset manager in the United States.

Recognizing Canada’s status as a high-potential global market, the firm aims to introduce innovative and competitive products tailored to local investors’ specific needs.

President Kim’s strategy underscores the importance of understanding and adapting to the unique characteristics of the Canadian market. His focus on aligning product offerings with investor demand is poised to drive Horizons ETFs’ continued growth and success in this dynamic financial arena.
