Investment Objectives

The Fund's objective is to provide long-term growth of capital by investing in equity and debt instruments of primarily Canadian businesses. The Fund may invest in equity and debt instruments of U.S. and foreign businesses. Investments may include common and preferred shares, convertible debentures, warrants, government and corporate bonds and short-term indebtedness.

Investment Strategy

The investment process followed in selecting equity investments, convertible debentures, warrants, government and corporate bonds and short-term indebtedness for the Funds is a value-oriented approach to investing. This involves a detailed analysis of the strengths of individual companies, with much less emphasis on short-term market factors.
