Investment Objectives

To provide as high a regular monthly income as possible. To provide relatively tax efficient distributions consisting of dividend income, interest income and capital gains. To provide the potential for modest capital growth. The fund invests primarily in higher yielding Canadian fixed-income securities such as government and corporate bonds, debentures, notes and preferred shares. The fund may also invest in common shares, income trusts and similar high-yielding investments.

Investment Strategy

The monthly distribution is reviewed and established at the beginning of each calendar year based on the market outlook. The monthly distribution may be adjusted during the year if required, as capital market conditions change.
