Investment Objectives

The Fund aims to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing its assets primarily in equity securities of emerging market companies. The Fund will be able to invest in any sector and in both large and small capitalization companies. The Fund follows a responsible approach to investing, as described on pages 74 to 79 of this prospectus. Unitholder approval (by a majority of votes cast at a meeting of unitholders) is required prior to a fundamental change of investment objectives.

Investment Strategy

The Portfolio Sub-Advisor’s investment philosophy is based on the core belief that evaluating stocks with a combination of fundamental and quantitative methods is superior to any single approach because it yields a more comprehensive understanding of factors that drive performance. The Portfolio Sub-Advisor follows a disciplined investment process that combines top-down and bottom-up fundamental research with quantitative tools.
