Investment Objectives

> To provide total returns comprised of interest income and modest capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in global convertible bonds issued by entities domiciled or carrying out their business activities anywhere in the world. We will not change the fundamental investment objectives of the fund unless we have the consent of a majority of the voting unitholders of the fund to do so.

Investment Strategy

To achieve the fund’s objectives, the portfolio manager: invests the fund’s assets primarily in global convertible bond securities, both rated and unrated, issued by entities domiciled or carrying out their business activities anywhere in the world; conducts detailed company credit and equity analysis to identify investment opportunities offering higher probabilities of superior rates of return while simultaneously minimizing the prospect of default.
