Investment Objectives

The objective of this Fund is to provide dividend income and some capital appreciation by investing primarily in preferred shares of Canadian companies.

Investment Strategy

The portfolio manager employs an investment process that is based on a fundamental approach comprised of the following two main aspects: fundamental analysis (economic situation, assessment of the credit quality of companies), value analysis (relative value between preferred shares, capital structures, etc.) as well as risk management (sector and issuer diversification, etc.). The portfolio manager invests mainly in the preferred shares of Canadian issuers.
