Investment Objectives

The investment objective of Counsel Canadian Growth is to invest primarily in Canadian equity securities to seek to achieve long-term capital growth and to provide a reasonable rate of return. Counsel Canadian Growth may also invest in Canadian fixed-income securities and equity and fixed-income securities of issuers anywhere in the world, depending upon prevailing market conditions.

Investment Strategy

The sub-advisor invests primarily in companies that are changing for the better and whose underlying fundamentals are improving more rapidly than the overall stock market. The sub-advisor seeks to be rewarded by significant upward movements in stock prices that occur over shorter time periods. Since change is the catalyst, this style tends to generate relatively high portfolio turnover.
