Fund Objectives

To provide a long-term total return, consisting of capital growth and current income. The fund invests primarily in equity securities of Canadian companies based on Strategy Indexing, an investment portfolio management model developed in 1995 by Jim O'Shaughnessy. Strategy Indexing is a rigorous and disciplined approach to stock selection based on characteristics associated with above average returns over long periods of time. Stocks are bought and held over the course of each year, with no attempt to time the markets.
