Strategy Overview

Investment approach

Superior and sustainable results are achieved by investing in a concentrated (yet diversified) portfolio of high quality companies and holding them for the very long run. As a result of unique competitive advantages, these companies are able to generate stable and strong return on invested capital (ROIC), provide ample long-term growth potential at incrementally higher ROIC, generate strong and predictable free cash flow, consistently compound shareholder wealth over the long term and preserve capital.

Also available with an ethical filter and ESG considerations.

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.
