Investment Objectives

The NBI Precious Metals Fund aims to achieve long-term growth through investment primarily in securities of companies or securities whose value is dependent upon the value of gold, silver, platinum and palladium (“Precious Metals”) or strategic metals (such as rhodium, titanium, chromium, cobalt and iridium) or strategic minerals or diamonds.

Investment Strategy

The fund invests mainly in Canadian and foreign companies engaged in the exploration for, or the mining, production or distribution of Precious Metals. The portfolio sub-advisor seeks undervalued shares in every sector, and also considers the quality and liquidity of the securities. The portfolio sub-advisor uses an extensive database to screen securities in order to select the best companies.
