Toronto’s S&P/TSX Composite Index rose 1.3%, buoyed by a 2.7% weekly advance in the price of crude oil and a decline in the rate of inflation in July, to 2.8% from 3% in June.

The CI Cambridge Canadian Dividend Fund is a multi-year FundGrade A+® Award winner, and currently carries a FundGrade A Grade for August. A clue to the fund’s outperformance is its tilt towards smaller-cap companies. Manager Stephen Groff looks at total return instead of just dividends, searching for quality companies that pay a fair dividend and offer compounding returns.

The European equity fund category has been a middling performer for the past several years, with a five-year average annual compounded rate of return of 7.8% through July 2018, placing it 16th among 55 fund categories for that period. But Benjamin Zhan, portfolio manager of the Dynamic European Equity Fund, has far surpassed that average and topped the category with a five-year return of 12.8% through the end of July. And that’s earned the fund its current FundGrade A Grade rating.
