Investment Objectives

This fund’s objective is to generate a high level of tax-efficient income with moderate volatility by investing primarily in a portfolio of high quality preferred shares of Canadian corporations.

Investment Strategy

These are the strategies the portfolio manager uses to try to achieve the fund’s objective: invests primarily in exchangeable fixed/floating rate, floating rate, perpetual or retractable preferred shares of large capitalization Canadian corporations; attempts to add value by purchasing preferred shares where the valuations of the instrument do not reflect the underlying credit quality.
