Investment Objectives

This fund is an asset allocation fund specifically designed to meet the changing needs of investors who are saving money for the purpose of funding a post-secondary education that commences around 2025. The fund gradually shifts its asset mix from an emphasis on equity funds, in its early years, to an emphasis on money market funds as its “target” date (2025) approaches.

Investment Strategy

The underlying funds are managed by RBC GAM or an affiliate of RBC GAM. The portfolio manager uses an asset allocation strategy as the principal investment strategy (see About the asset allocation strategy).
