Investment Objectives

Dynamic Small Business Fund seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation and income through investment primarily in equity securities of relatively small Canadian businesses. Before a fundamental change is made to the investment objective of the Fund, the prior approval of unitholders is required. This approval must be given by a resolution passed by a majority of the votes cast at a meeting of unitholders.

Investment Strategy

The Fund invests primarily in securities of publicly traded, relatively small Canadian businesses, including dividend or distribution paying businesses, including investment trusts. The Fund may also include similar investments in mid-capitalization businesses. The Fund generally follows an investment approach emphasizing a suitably diversified portfolio of different businesses that meet required objectives.
