Investment Objectives

This fund’s objective is to achieve long-term capital growth consistent with the preservation of capital by investing primarily in equity securities of large Canadian companies that have long-term growth potential or that pay or are expected to pay above-average dividends.

Investment Strategy

These are the strategies the portfolio manager uses to try to achieve the fund’s objective: invests primarily in securities of large capitalization Canadian companies; examines the financial statistics of each company it’s considering to determine if the equity securities are attractively priced; reviews company operations and research and development to assess the company’s potential for growth; monitors the companies in which the fund invests for changes that may affect their profitability.
