Investment Objectives

The objective of the Fund is to provide long-term growth. The Fund invests for high long-term, after-tax rates of return. The portfolio sub-advisor intends to achieve this objective by investing in a diversified mix of common shares, preferred shares, treasury bills, short-term notes, debentures and bonds. The Fund may also invest up to all of its assets in other Manulife funds.

Investment Strategy

The portfolio sub-advisor will analyze the economy and markets with a view to determine which of the above asset classes are more likely to offer attractive risk/return characteristics within a medium to long-term time frame. The portfolio sub-advisor believes that by making incremental shifts in the asset mix of the Fund, the portfolio sub-advisor will more likely achieve high long-term, after-tax rates of return.
