Investment Objectives

The Fund’s objective is to provide superior capital growth. It invests primarily in shares and other securities of small and medium Canadian companies that have the potential to generate above-average growth.

Investment Strategy

The portfolio manager uses a fundamental bottom-up investment process to identify attractive businesses trading at reasonable valuations. This core investment process is complemented by top-down macroeconomic and industry outlooks. The portfolio manager may develop strong views concerning certain macro or industry factors, in which case sector weights are adjusted to compensate for the expected opportunities/risks.
