Investment Objectives

The objective of this Fund is to provide unitholders with a reasonable income return and long-term capital appreciation. The Fund’s portfolio consists primarily of equity securities of Canadian corporations.

Investment Strategy

The management of the Fund is assigned to a sub-manager who favours a value management style. The sub-manager uses quantitative techniques to select securities in a bottom-up approach. It chooses securities that are trading below their intrinsic value and have potential for near-term appreciation. That appreciation will occur when the financial performance of the corporation exceeds the market’s low expectations.
