Fund Objectives

The fund seeks long-term capital growth by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of equity securities of Canadian resource companies. In order to achieve the fund's objective, the portfolio manager: i) analyzes financial information of each potential investment to identify under-valued companies with improving fundamentals and high potential for price appreciation ii) reviews economic data, market trends, stock valuations, interest rate levels, monetary policy and other factors to identify business cycle trends iii) applies qualitative analysis and may interview company management to select those with the best risk adjusted potential for price appreciation iv) tends to overweight exposure to industry sectors that demonstrate the strongest potential without exposing the fund to unreasonable levels of risk v) may invest in foreign securities (including units of other funds) up to permitted foreign content limits vi) may also invest in derivatives like options, futures and forward contracts to enhance returns or protect against losses.
