Space returned as a theme this week, with Harvest debuting the Harvest Space Innovation Index ETF on TSX, providing Canadian investors with access to the growing space industry sector. Other newcomers include TrueMark's new structured outcome ETF APRZ providing investors with exposure to the S&P 500 Index, and Vanguard’s first actively managed Ultra-Short Bond ETF, offering low-cost diversified options for investors seeking income and limited price volatility.
