Fund Objectives

This fund's objective is to obtain long-term appreciation of capital. It invests primarily in equity and equity-related securities of companies that the portfolio advisor believes have good growth potential. These companies are located in countries that have signed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) (or its successor). These countries currently include the United States, Canada and Mexico, but may also include countries that become members of NAFTA in the future. Any change to the investment objective must be approved by a majority of votes cast at a meeting of unitholders held for that reason.
