Investment Objectives

The Fund seeks to provide above-average long-term investment returns by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of common shares and other equity-related securities issued by Canadian companies.

Investment Strategy

The Fund invests in equities of Canadian issuers with the intention of holding them for the long term. The Fund is not restricted by capitalization or industry sector. We focus on determining the inherent value of a company’s business rather than attempting to predict short term fluctuations in its share price. In evaluating a company’s inherent value, we look at factors such as management, competitive position, growth prospects and cash flow.
