The Strategy seeks to provide a total investment return in excess of the performance of its benchmark index (the "Index") over the long term.
BENCHMARK: S&P®/TSX® Capped Composite Index
Primarily equities of companies that are listed on Canadian exchanges and may occasionally include limited partnerships, warrants, special warrants, sub-receipts or installment receipts of such companies.
The Strategy uses a fundamental research-driven investment process to build a high-conviction portfolio of equities that we believe offer sustainable growth prospects at a reasonable valuation. After screening the investment universe, our analysts perform detailed company due-diligence, including quantitative forecasts of financial metrics, and a rigorous assessment of quality scored on proprietary metrics. Portfolio construction is based on choosing the companies that we believe offer the best combination of quality, sustainable growth, and valuation, while managing portfolio risk. The investment approach is disciplined and takes a long-term perspective.
