Investment Objectives

The fundamental investment objective of the Fund is to obtain capital appreciation, preservation and dividend income. The Fund will invest in a diversified portfolio, of which the equity portion will be comprised of mainly Canadian and U.S. equity securities. A portion of the Fund’s assets may also be held in securities outside of North America. The fundamental investment objective of the Fund cannot be changed without the approval of investors who own securities in the Fund.

Investment Strategy

The portfolio advisor seeks to achieve the fundamental investment objective of the Fund by investing in securities trading below their intrinsic value. Investment analysis is focused on understanding and evaluating the factors that make a company profitable, including profit margins; the use of assets; debt levels; revenues and reinvestment opportunities. This effort is complemented by an evaluation of the unique strengths of each business in relation to its competitors.
