Horizon Marijuana Life Sciences Index bolstered with new additions

Proactive Investors Monday, 18 March 2019
A number of new cannabis players were added to the quarterly rebalance of the Horizon Marijuana Life Sciences Index (HMMJ) ETF on Monday. HMMJ bolstered its portfolio as more firms have become eligible for inclusion in its underlying index – the North American Marijuana Index. Companies added to the list include: Flowr Corp (CVE:FLWR), Heritage Cannabis Holdings Corp (CSE:CANN), ICC International Cannabis Corp (CSE:WRLD.U), Zenabis Global Ltd (CVE:ZENA), PharmaCielo Ltd (CVE:PCLO) and Westleaf Inc (CVE:WL).

"As the number of listings and the market-capitalization of cannabis stocks continues to grow so dramatically, so too have the number of eligible issuers to be included in HMMJ. This is why the ETF has added 10 new names to its portfolio, bringing the total number of investee companies in HMMJ to 59." HMMJ is rebalanced each quarter and is an Index ETF that seeks to replicate the performance of the North American Marijuana Index. The index is designed to provide investors with exposure to a basket of North American publicly listed life sciences companies with significant business activities in the cannabis industry.
