Investment Objectives

The investment objective of the Fund is to achieve long-term capital growth by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of securities of small capitalization foreign and Canadian companies. Any modification of the fundamental investment objective must be approved by the unitholders by a majority vote at a meeting called for this purpose.

Investment Strategy

The management of the Fund is assigned to two sub-managers, who both favour a bottom-up investment strategy but with different investment styles. The first one uses a relative-value investment style. The sub-manager seeks securities of issuers which exhibit the following characteristics: a reasonable valuation based on the issuer’s discounted cash flow, sustainable competitive advantages, sound management and presence of a catalyst for price revaluation.
