Balanced

The objective of the Balanced Fund is to enhance long-term capital value by investing in Canadian, U.S. and international equity securities; fixed-income securities; and cash and cash equivalents. The Fund’s advisor uses a value based approach to select equity investments which means the advisor looks for stocks that are undervalued in relation to the business value of the issuer. The Fund’s fixed income portfolio is invested in a diversified group of Canadian government and Canadian corporate bonds. The asset mix of the Fund will normally fall within a range of 60% equity and 40% fixed income.

Equity

This Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation primarily through investments in common shares and other equity securities of established Canadian issuers. The Fund’s adviser attempts to buy the best economic value in the market regardless of what sector the issuer operates in, identifying stocks that are undervalued in relation to the business value of the issuer. If financial results fall short of expectations, the intrinsic value of the underlying assets of the issuer should provide downside protection.

This Fund’s objective is to achieve a balance between high dividend income and capital growth by investing mainly in a diversified portfolio of blue-chip Canadian common stocks. The Fund may also invest in preferred stocks, bonds, purchase warrants and rights, royalty trusts and income trusts, and foreign securities. The selection gives preference to capital growth, while providing a high, regular level of income. The portfolio adviser chooses the investments by seeking out reputable stocks that are undervalued in the market focusing on mid and large capitalization Canadian corporations in a variety of industries, while favouring equity securities, including preferred stocks, that provide a stable income.

This Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation primarily through investments in common shares and other equity securities of smaller capitalization Canadian issuers. The Fund’s adviser uses a value based approach to seek superior long-term capital appreciation at reasonable risk. The adviser believes that the value of a business is defined by its future potential to generate free cash flow for the shareholder. The adviser buys companies at a discount to that business value. We will determine from time to time the criteria for issuers which qualify as smaller capitalization based on industry benchmarks. Currently, an issuer qualifies as a smaller capitalization Canadian issuer if its market float is in the bottom 15% of the S&P/TSX Composite Index.

The Fund seeks long-term capital growth through investments primarily in common shares and other equity securities of issuers in Canada and the United States. The strategy of this Fund is to hold a concentrated portfolio of quality companies for the long-term. Thus, the portfolio will consist of a small number of large positions with very low turnover. It is not expected that the Fund will invest in more than 24 issuers at one time. Companies generating substantial free cash flow are favoured. Securities of these companies are purchased when they are trading at a substantial discount to their business value.
