The Canadian fund company registers three more ETFs in the U.S.

Horizons ETF Trust is currently prepping a trio of country-specific ETFs to make dividend plays in China, Canada and South Korea at a time when investors are scouring all corners of the globe for yields.

Specifically, the Horizons China High Dividend Yield ETF will track the Hang Seng High Dividend Yield Index, which comprises 50 constituent securities listed on the stock exchange of Hong Kong with the highest net dividend yield.

The Horizons KOSPI 200 ETF will track the KOSPI 200 Index, a free-float-adjusted, market-capitalization-weighted index comprising 200 blue chip companies listed on the Korea Stock Market.

And the Horizons S&P/TSX 60 ETF will track the S&P/TSX 60 Index, which comprises 60 of the largest and most liquid securities listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange and selected by S&P Dow Jones Indices.

No tickers and associated fund fees were disclosed in the filing.
