Strategy Overview

Investment approach

Absolute return strategy based on a dual approach of currency management and short term arbitrage to benefit from daily price fluctuations. Through technical, momentum and fundamental analysis, long and short positions are implemented in short-term federal and provincial bonds. A directional currency management strategy is also employed through intra-day purchases and sales of the Canadian dollar against major currencies. This fund, which places great emphasis on capital preservation, produces both absolute positive returns and low volatility.

Key Characteristics

  • Very low realized volatility
  • Short-term fixed income portfolio targeting low interest rate exposure and low credit risk
  • Solid risk/reward profile as measured by Sharpe ratio
  • Diversified solution with multiple, risk-controlled positions


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.
