Investment Objectives

The Pender Small/Mid Cap Dividend Fund is designed to provide investors with a combination of long-term capital appreciation and a stable quarterly stream of cash distributions. The Fund will invest primarily in Canadian securities, with a focus on, but not limited to, dividend paying small/mid cap companies. Assets in the Fund may also be held in cash or other securities to the extent that the economic, market, or other conditions make it appropriate.

Investment Strategy

The Fund uses a bottom-up approach to investing as its primary method of security selection. Given the Fund’s emphasis on companies with cash distributions, there is a focus on the cash flow quality of a business and its ability to generate sustainable excess cash flow. The Fund uses a value approach to investing, looking for companies trading below their intrinsic value. The Fund will also overlay quantitative analysis to help screen for new ideas and supplement the fundamental analysis.
