Investment Objectives

The FÉRIQUE Canadian Bond Fund seeks to maximize the total return by a combination of high revenues and capital appreciation. The money is thus mainly invested and reinvested in fixed income securities issued by governments and corporations.

Investment Strategy

The Fund is managed by two portfolio managers who use different styles, namely Addenda Capital Inc. (Addenda), which manages 50% of the portfolio, and Baker Gilmore & Associates Inc. (Baker Gilmore), which manages 50% of the portfolio (all percentages expressed in the investment strategy are presented as a percentage of the Fund’s net asset value). These weightings may vary according to market fluctuations and investors’ transactions in the Fund.
