Fund Objectives

This Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of mid to large capitalization Canadian equities. The Fund invests in equity securities of growth-oriented companies at reasonable prices. The Fund may invest in foreign securities up to the maximum amount permitted for registered plans (30% of the Fund in 2001). Bissett's proven investment style is best described as "Growth at a Reasonable Price" (GARP). The Bissett equity investment team applies a bottom-up research approach to identify firms that are gaining momentum and demonstrate sustainable, replicable growth. One of the many selection criteria in this process is that chosen stocks have a modest P/E ratio - Bissett managers try to buy a stock before its price accelerates well beyond its earnings capabilities.
