Investment Objectives

The fund seeks to outperform the broad Canadian equity market as measured by the S&P/TSX Composite Index, over a time period longer than 5 years, providing long-term capital appreciation and value by investing primarily in equities of Canadian issuers. To assist in achieving this objective the fund may focus its assets in specific industry sectors and asset classes based on analysis of business cycles, industry sectors and market outlook.

Investment Strategy

The investment advisor adheres to a top-down approach that focuses on the overall market and sector specific issues and a bottom-up approach that focuses on company specific issues. The fund has the ability to take positions in equities (including income trusts), fixed income securities, convertible securities, mutual funds, ETFs and cash. The investment advisor will seek to identify and select for the fund the best risk return opportunities it finds available across the capitalization spectrum.
