Investment Objectives

This fund's objective is to provide a high level of interest income along with the opportunity for growth by investing primarily in Canadian dollar denominated investment grade and non-investment grade debt instruments.

Investment Strategy

These are the strategies the portfolio manager uses to try to achieve the fund’s objective: invests primarily in Canadian dollar denominated investment grade fixed income instruments such as debt securities issued or guaranteed by Canadian federal and provincial governments or issued by Canadian corporations and in non-investment grade debt instruments, loans and any other debt obligations the portfolio manager believes will enhance the fund’s total return.
