Investment Objectives

This fund’s objective is to provide above-average growth in the value of your investment over the long term by investing in small and mid-sized Canadian companies. The fundamental investment objectives may only be changed with the approval of a majority of the votes cast at a meeting of unitholders called for that purpose.

Investment Strategy

These are the strategies the portfolio manager uses to try to achieve the fund’s objective: invests in equities of Canadian small and mid-sized companies; examines the financial statistics of each company it’s considering to determine if the equity securities are attractively priced; may emphasize specific industry sectors with high potential return or companies that may benefit from trends like an aging population.
