Investment Objectives

This fund's objective is to increase the value of your investment over the long term by investing in Canadian natural resource companies. As part of its investment objective, this fund invests primarily in companies that are listed on Canadian stock exchanges and that operate in the precious metals, base metals, oil and gas, or forest products industries. It may also buy precious metals directly.

Investment Strategy

These are the strategies the portfolio manager uses to try to achieve the fund’s objective: employs fundamental analysis to identify and select equities that trade below their intrinsic value and demonstrate superior earnings growth; 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.
