About the Horizons' Psychedelic ETF & North American Psychedelic Index
The underlying index is the North American Psychedelic Stock Index, provided by German-based index provider Solactive.
The Index is passive, weighing constituent companies according to their market cap, with a number of conditions that prevent the Index becoming dominated by big pharma, and by psychedelics companies with the largest market cap.
Horizons is the fourth-largest ETF provider in Canada. It brought the first cannabis industry ETF (TSE:HMMJ) to market in 2017. Now, Horizons is providing investors with the first Psychedelic Stock Index ETF.
