HMUS will be the first index ETF solution to focus solely on identifying, and investing directly in, U.S. marijuana and hemp companies. As the U.S. continues to further liberalize its marijuana regulations, we anticipate that more investors will be looking to invest in companies with significant business operations in the U.S. market and HMUS will provide a diversified and liquid way to gain that exposure in one ETF.
The top-20 constituents and weights of the Underlying Index as at April 15, 2019, are in the table below. Please note that the weights of the Underlying Index and the actual portfolio weights of HMUS could be different. Horizons ETFs will not invest the assets of HMUS on a discretionary basis except to the extent it may select securities of issuers in the course of employing a stratified sampling strategy to seek to closely match the investment characteristics of the Underlying Index.
