Investment Objectives

The fundamental investment objective of the Explorer Series Fund is to seek long-term capital growth by investing in a diversified portfolio of primarily equity securities of Canadian mineral exploration and mining companies. Any change in the Explorer Series Fund’s fundamental investment objectives (that do not require a change to the Multi Series Fund constating documents) must be approved by a majority of the votes cast by holders of Explorer Series Shares at a meeting to consider the change.

Investment Strategy

In order to achieve the above investment objectives, the Manager, as manager of the Explorer Series Fund, may employ some or all of the following investment strategies: analyze financial information of each potential investment to identify under-valued companies with improving fundamentals and high potential for price appreciation; review economic data, market trends, stock valuations, interest rate levels, monetary policy and other factors to identify business cycle and commodity sector trends.
