Investment Objectives

The investment objective of the Fund is to maximize capital growth by investing its assets primarily in equities of Canadian natural resource companies. The Fund may, also invest a portion of its assets in securities of US and other foreign issuers.

Investment Strategies

In order to achieve its objective, the Fund will invest its assets primarily in equities of Canadian natural resource companies including, by way of example, those engaged in mining, oil and gas, forest products, water resources and fishing, and those companies that support such industries. Natural resource companies in which the Fund invests may also include so-called "royalty companies", which do not themselves carry on resource businesses but rather acquire, through purchase of equity or debt securities of a resource company, the right to participate in the revenues or profits of such resource company.

While a majority of the portfolio securities of the Fund will be listed on a stock exchange, a number of portfolio securities of the Fund may be small to mid-cap unlisted stocks which the Portfolio Advisor believes to have a potential for significant value appreciation. In general, a security that is classified as small to mid-cap has a market capitalization of less than one billion dollars. The Fund may also invest up to 49% of its assets (taken at the time of purchase or investment) in securities of US and other foreign issuers.
