Investment Objectives

This fund’s objective is to provide a high after-tax return, which includes dividend income and capital gains from growth in the value of your investment. As part of its investment objective, the fund invests primarily in dividend-yielding common and preferred shares of established Canadian companies.

Investment Strategy
