Investment Objectives

The objective of the Fund is to provide long-term growth and preservation of capital. The Fund will invest up to all of its assets in a diversified mix of other mutual funds, and may also invest in common shares, preferred shares, treasury bills, short-term notes, debentures, and bonds. 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 sub-advisor will analyze the economy and markets with a view to determine which of the above asset classes are more likely to offer attractive risk/return characteristics within a medium to long-term time frame. The portfolio sub-advisor believes that by making incremental shifts in the asset mix of the Fund, the portfolio sub-advisor will more likely achieve high long-term, after-tax rates of return.
