Investment Objectives

The Fund’s objective is to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in publicly-traded equity securities of companies based outside of Canada and the United States, but may also, as market opportunities dictate, include private placements up to a maximum of 10% of net assets of the Fund, subject to CIFSC limits. Assets of the Fund may also be held in debt obligations or held in cash to the extent that economic, market, or other conditions make it appropriate.

Investment Strategy

The Fund invests in a diversified portfolio consisting primarily of equity securities. The Fund invests in a combination of securities including, but not limited to, common and preferred shares, REITS, government and corporate bonds, short term debt instruments, convertible securities (including convertible bonds and warrants), and other similar entities. The Fund’s asset mix will vary according to the portfolio manager’s view of market and economic conditions.
