Fund Objectives

ABC Fully-Managed Fund is a diversified Canadian balanced fund. The investment objective of the Fund is to seek longterm capital appreciation by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of Canadian and American equity and fixed income securities. While our long-term asset mix target is 50% fixed income and 50% North American equities, in practice, our portfolio mix of stocks versus bonds is quite flexible to take advantage of periodic investment opportunities.
