Press Release: Guardian Capital LP Launches Ultra Short-Term Canadian and U.S. T-Bill Funds
TORONTO, July 11, 2023 – Guardian Capital LP (Guardian Capital) is excited to announce the launch of the ETF series of Guardian Ultra-Short Canadian T-Bill Fund and Guardian Ultra-Short U.S. T-Bill Fund (the Guardian Funds), which are expected to commence trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) when the market opens this morning.
These Guardian Funds are designed to provide investors with interest income and access to low-risk, high-quality cash alternatives by investing primarily in short-term Canadian and U.S. treasury bills, as applicable.

“With interest rates rising significantly over the past two years, cash and cash alternatives have once again become a very attractive asset class for investors looking to generate monthly income with low risk. One of the more efficient ways for investors to get this access is through ultra-short T-Bills, which currently pay attractive yields with low credit risk, as these are government-backed securities,” said Barry Gordon, Managing Director, Head of Retail Asset Management at Guardian Capital. “We’re excited to launch these two actively managed T-Bill funds, which provide exposure to ultra-short T-Bills with durations of generally less than six months, and will utilize the extensive depth of experience of our fixed income team with the goal of maximizing return opportunities within this asset class.”
Each Guardian Fund has closed its initial offering of ETF Units. In addition to ETF Units, each Guardian Fund offers Series A Mutual Fund Units, Series F Mutual Fund Units and Series I Mutual Fund Units (collectively, Units). Units of Guardian Ultra-Short Canadian T-Bill Fund are denominated in Canadian dollars, and Units of Guardian Ultra-Short U.S. T-Bill Fund are denominated in U.S. dollars.
