Investment Objectives

Current income, liquidity and some long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of Canadian government and corporate debt instruments.

Investment Strategy

The portfolio advisor employs fundamental analysis in selecting investments for the Fund’s portfolio. The Fund invests primarily in investment-grade Canadian debt instruments. The Fund may invest in Canadian-dollar-denominated debt instruments issued by foreign governments and corporations. The Fund will not purchase non-investment-grade debt instruments, but may continue to hold a debt instrument that is assigned a non-investment-grade rating following a credit downgrade.
