Fund Objectives

The investment objective of the fund is to provide consistent long-term total returns comprised of dividends and capital gains by investing in large-cap Canadian companies that pay dividends. The manager uses a top-down growth/value blend investment style to manage the fund. The fund is managed as a conservative common-stock fund designed to have a portfolio yield higher than the TSE 300 Index. Concentrating on 30 to 40 of their best stock ideas, the manager generally choose three types of stocks: income, growth and cyclical. This buy-and-hold strategy results in annual portfolio turnover of less than 25%.
