Investment Objectives

The Fund seeks to provide a combination of income and long-term capital appreciation. The Fund will invest in a diversified portfolio, of which the equity portion will be comprised of mainly Canadian dividend paying common and preferred equity securities. The Fund may also invest in real estate investment trusts (“REITs”) and royalty trusts. A portion of the Fund’s assets may also be held in foreign securities.

Investment Strategy

The Fund invests substantially all of its assets in securities of Manulife Dividend Income Fund. However, if the portfolio advisor determines that it may be more beneficial for securityholders, the Fund may invest primarily in a diversified portfolio of Canadian equity securities, foreign securities, real estate investment trusts (“REITs”) and royalty trusts, either directly or indirectly.
