Fund Objectives

The goal of the Fund is to provide unitholders with as high a level of dividend income as possible by investing in high-quality shares that also offer the potential for modest capital growth.

Assets include common shares, preferred shares, and convertible preferred shares. From time to time, the Fund may also invest in debentures, money market instruments, and other fixed-income securities.
