Investment Objectives

This fund’s objective is to increase the value of your investment over the long term by investing in securities of primarily Canadian companies in the precious metals industry. As part of its investment objective, this fund invests mainly in Canadian companies that are involved in the exploration, mining, production or distribution of precious metals.

Investment Strategy

These are the strategies the portfolio manager uses to try to achieve the fund’s objective: employs a systematic model based on fundamental equity analysis to identify and select equities that trade below their intrinsic value, demonstrate superior earnings growth, and demonstrate positive price momentum; reviews company operations and research and development to assess the company’s potential for growth.
