Investment Objectives

The Fund seeks to provide investors with a steady stream of income with some emphasis on capital preservation and the potential for modest capital growth by investing primarily in exchange traded funds to gain exposure to Canadian and foreign equity and fixed-income securities and other asset categories. The Fund may also invest in other mutual funds or invest directly in Canadian and foreign equity and fixed-income securities and other asset categories.

Investment Strategy

The Fund’s asset mix will generally be kept within the following ranges: 65% - 85% fixed-income securities and 15% - 35% equity securities. The Fund is built upon long-term strategic allocations to different equity markets, fixed-income markets, and other asset classes. The Fund may be over or underweight equity or fixed income or other asset class holdings when Counsel believes it is prudent to do so based on market signals and other factors.
