Fund Objectives

The Fund's goal is to generate a high level of tax-effective income with moderate volatility by investment primarily in a portfolio of high quality preferred shares of Canadian corporations. Any change to the fundamental investment objectives must be approved by a majority of votes cast at a meeting of Unitholders held for that reason.
