Fund Objectives

This is a strategic asset allocation fund with the objective to generate income and provide capital growth by investing in a balanced allocation of mutual funds invested in fixed income and equity securities. The Fund will invest primarily in units of funds managed by MD Financial Management, with an even emphasis on fixed income funds for capital preservation and income generation, and in equity funds for potential capital appreciation. The Fund may also invest in other non-affiliated mutual funds and directly in fixed-income securities, cash or cash equivalents.
