Investment Objectives

> To provide regular monthly income with a potential for modest capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in units of other mutual funds managed by RBC GAM or an affiliate of RBC GAM (called the underlying funds), emphasizing mutual funds that invest in higher yielding fixed-income securities. We will not change the fundamental investment objectives of the fund unless we have the consent of a majority of the voting unitholders of the fund to do so.

Investment Strategy

It is expected that the fund will invest up to 100% of its net assets in units of the underlying funds managed by RBC GAM or an affiliate of RBC GAM.
