Investment Objectives

The fund’s objective is to provide a high level of regular interest income. It invests primarily in foreign currency-denominated bonds and money market instruments issued by Canadian federal, provincial and municipal governments and Canadian corporations, and by foreign governments and corporations, and supranational entities, such as the World Bank.

Investment Strategy

The average term to maturity of the Fund’s investments will vary, depending on market conditions. The portfolio adviser adjusts the average term to maturity to try to maximize returns while minimizing interest rate risk. The portfolio adviser uses interest rate and yield curve analysis to select individual investments and manage the Fund’s average term to maturity. It analyzes credit risk to identify securities that offer the potential for higher yields at an acceptable level of risk.
