Investment Objectives

The fundamental investment objective of Sionna Canadian Equity Fund is to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in the equity securities of Canadian issuers. The Fund may also invest in foreign equity securities.

Investment Strategy

Sionna applies a relative Graham & Dodd value approach to stock selection. Generally, stocks of Canadian companies that are financially strong and have a measurable worth will be bought when, in Sionna’s view, the stock is selling at a price below its estimated worth or its intrinsic value. Sionna believes the market will eventually recognize the value of such a company and its stock price will rise towards its intrinsic value. Stocks are typically sold when they become fully valued.
