Investment Objectives

Dynamic American Fund seeks to achieve long-term capital growth by investing primarily in equity securities of United States based businesses. Before a fundamental change is made to the investment objective of the Fund, the prior approval of unitholders is required. This approval must be given by a resolution passed by a majority of the votes cast at a meeting of unitholders.

Investment Strategy

To achieve its mandate, the Fund will invest primarily in United States based companies. From time-to-time, and to a lesser extent, this Fund may also invest in companies in other countries in the Americas. Investment analysis for this Fund follows a bottom-up approach, which emphasizes careful company specific analysis. Using a value investment approach, this Fund invests in companies that represent good value based on current stock price relative to the company’s intrinsic value.
