Investment Objectives

This fund’s objective is to achieve a high level of total return, including dividend income and capital gains, by investing primarily in dividend-yielding common and preferred shares of North American companies.

Investment Strategy

These are the strategies the portfolio manager (Canadian portfolio) and the sub-advisor (U.S. portfolio) use to try to achieve the fund’s objective: invest in North American equities; examine the financial statistics of each company they are considering to determine if the equity securities are attractively priced and the company demonstrates consistent earnings; monitor the companies in which the fund invests for changes that may affect their profitability.
