Fund Objective

The objective of the Fund is to outperform the broad Canadian equity market as measured by the S&P/TSX Composite Total Return Index, over the long term of 5+ years, providing long-term capital appreciation and value by investing primarily in small-to mid-capitalization stocks of Canadian issuers. To assist in achieving this objective, the Fund may focus its assets in specific industry sectors and asset classes based on the analysis of business cycles, industry sectors and market outlook.
