First Asset Canadian Convertible Bond Fund

view Class F

Fund Overview

The Fund invests predominantly in Canadian debentures that are convertible into equity of Canadian issuers, investments of convertible debentures of non-Canadian issuers as well as fixed income instruments and equities. The Fund may invest up to 30% of the net asset value in convertible debentures of non-Canadian issuers. No more than 20% of the Fund's net asset value will be invested in equities as a result of any conversions and fixed income instruments, other equities and cash. At the Fund Manager's discretion, the Fund may be invested entirely in cash or cash equivalents.

Investor suitability
For those who:

  • Wish to generate a higher periodic yield than a portfolio of fixed income, but are not willing to take on the risk level of Canadian equities;
  • Have a long-term investment horizon;
  • Are seeking capital appreciation to supplement their current income; and
  • Are prepared for a low to medium level of investment risk.

National Instrument 81-106 Investment Fund Continuous Disclosure requires disclosure of the proxy voting record on an annual basis for the period ending on June 30 of each year. The proxy voting record must be posted on the website no later than August 31 of each year.

Canadian securities law provides that the manager of an investment funds (in this case, CI Investments Inc. ("CI")), acting on behalf of the investment fund, has the right and obligation to vote proxies relating to the investment fund's portfolio securities. As a practical matter, CI delegates this function to the applicable portfolio manager or sub-adviser, as part of the portfolio manager's or sub-adviser's general management of the investment fund assets, subject to oversight by CI. CI generally requires that applicable portfolio managers or sub-advisers vote all proxies in the best interest of CI's funds and their securityholders, as determined solely by the portfolio manager or sub-adviser, and subject to CI's proxy voting policy, the guidelines applicable to the individual portfolio manager or sub-adviser, and applicable legislation. Portfolio managers and sub-advisers are generally expected to vote on any matter for which the investment fund receives proxy materials for a meeting of securityholders of an issuer.

Proxy voting record for the most recent year:
