Investment Objectives

The Fund’s investment objective is to provide a stable level of cash flow by investing principally in short-term, high-quality fixed income securities issued or guaranteed by Canadian federal, provincial or municipal governments or issued by Canadian corporations. The investment objective cannot be changed unless unitholders of the Fund approve the change at a meeting.

Investment Strategy

This Fund invests primarily in shorter maturity Canadian fixed income securities using the following styles: interest rate management, sector selection, security selection, currency management, and global management. The Fund may invest up to 25% of its net assets in foreign fixed income securities. In order to seek to reduce currency risk, the Fund expects to hedge most of the foreign currency risk inherent in foreign currency securities through the use of forward contracts.
