Investment Objectives

This fund's objective is to increase the value of your investment over the long term by investing in equities of well-established Canadian companies.

Investment Strategy

These are the strategies the portfolio manager uses to try to achieve the fund’s objective: invests primarily in Canadian equity securities; employs a systematic model based on fundamental equity analysis to identify and select equities that trade below their intrinsic value, demonstrate superior earnings growth, and demonstrate positive price momentum; reviews operations and research and development to assess each company’s potential for growth.
