Active and Strategic Fixed Income Team – Active Short Term

Strategy Overview

Investment approach

Our active management approach adapts to changes in the economic, financial and political environments. With a focus on yield enhancement and capital preservation, the strategy aims to maximize the return per unit of risk with a low level of volatility (information ratio equal or greater than 0.50). We use four potential value-added sources and employ four types of analysis (fundamental, technical, sentiment and seasonality) around a well disciplined and structured  process that invests in high quality securities. Specific risk metrics are calculated periodically to minimize the default risk, and to maintain the calibration of each strategy within the overall risk budget of the portfolio.

Please read the simplified prospectus before investing. The amount of risk associated with any particular investment depends largely on your own personal circumstances including your time horizon, liquidity needs, portfolio size, income, investment knowledge and attitude toward price fluctuations. Investors should consult their financial advisor before making a decision as to whether this fund is a suitable investment for them.

Commissions, trailing commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with mutual fund investments. Mutual funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated.

The rate of return or mathematical table shown is used only to illustrate the effects of the compound growth rate and is not intended to reflect future values of the mutual fund or returns on investment in the mutual fund. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, distribution or optional charges or income taxes payable by any unitholder that would have reduced returns.
