Fund Objectives

The primary investment objective of the Enhanced Income Pool is to maximize performance through current income and capital appreciation while maintaining safety of capital through direct and indirect investments primarily in corporate bonds, income trusts, and other income generating securities. The advisor may also choose to invest a portion of the assets in securities denominated in foreign currencies and/or in securities issued by foreigners. Any change to the investment objectives must be approved by a majority of the votes cast by unitholders at a meeting called to consider the change.
