Generally speaking, we consider this Fund to be more aggressive than a typical income fund. We focus on the underlying fundamentals of the companies we invest in and less on their yield or distribution. We set a fixed distribution for the Fund, payable monthly.
Our bottom-up approach is research intensive and we look for outstanding risk/reward situations. We have a mid- cap bias and our investments are primarily in the Canadian equity and bond markets. Capital preservation is a core focus.
From a top-down perspective we do take a view. If we are bullish on the market, we will take a net long position and even increase beyond a 100% net long position by using manageable leverage. If we are unconstructive on the market, we will likely run with a net long position below 100% through a combination of cash and/or shorts. We intend on keeping the asset size of the fund relatively small in order to preserve a degree of nimbleness.
This Fund should be considered as aggressive for a typical portfolio.
