Investment Objectives

Long-term growth and preservation of capital. The Fund will invest up to all of its assets in a diversified mix of other mutual funds, and may also invest in common shares, preferred shares, treasury bills, short-term notes, debentures, and bonds.

Investment Strategy

The portfolio sub-advisor will analyze the economy and markets with a view to determine which of the above asset classes are more likely to offer attractive risk/return characteristics within a medium to long-term time frame. The portfolio sub-advisor believes that by making incremental shifts in the asset mix of the Fund, the portfolio sub-advisor will more likely achieve high long-term, after-tax rates of return.
