Investment Objectives

The investment objective of Counsel Global Small Cap is to seek long-term growth of capital by investing primarily in global small cap equity securities. Counsel Global Small Cap may also invest in mutual fund securities, equities and fixed-income securities of issuers located anywhere in the world, depending upon prevailing market conditions.

Investment Strategy

The sub-advisors invest primarily in Canadian, U.S. and international small cap equities as measured at the time of investment. Small capitalization equities may grow to become mid- to large-capitalization equities at the time they are sold. The term “small capitalization securities” has different meanings depending on the market and the size of the company within the market.
