Investment Objectives

> To provide total returns comprised of interest income and modest capital appreciation. The fund invests primarily in high yield debt securities issued by entities domiciled in or carrying out the majority of their business activities in Europe. 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 high yield debt securities, such as corporate bonds and loans, rated below investment grade (BB+ or below by Standard & Poor’s or an equivalent rating agency) of companies domiciled or carrying out the majority of their business activities in Europe.
