Investment Objectives

The Fund seeks to provide above-average long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in publicly traded equity issues of small to mid capitalized Canadian companies with above average growth potential. Any proposed change to the fundamental investment objectives of the Fund must be approved by a majority of the votes cast at a meeting of the Fund’s investors called for that purpose.

Investment Strategy

The focus is on selecting stocks with strong earnings growth, healthy fundamentals and attractive valuation relative to industry comparables and historic norms. The asset allocation guidelines for the Fund are as follows: Canadian stocks: 70% to 100%, Foreign stocks: 0% to 30%, Short-term fixed income securities: 0% to 30%. These are guidelines only; the Fund’s actual allocation to a particular asset class may deviate from these guidelines at the discretion of the sub-advisor.
