Investment Objectives

The objective of the Mawer New Canada Fund is to invest for above-average long-term, risk-adjusted returns by investing primarily in securities of smaller Canadian companies. Treasury bills or short-term investments, not exceeding three years to maturity, may also be used from time to time. This is a smaller capitalization fund.

Investment Strategy

We employ the following strategies to achieve the Fund’s objectives: We seek to systematically create a broadly diversified portfolio of wealth-creating companies bought at discounts to their intrinsic value; We seek to employ a long-term holding period to allow for investor recognition or corporate growth. There are no specific limits on the portion of the Fund’s assets that may be directly invested in foreign securities or indirectly exposed to investments in foreign securities.
