Performance Performance-tooltip

The Fund’s investment objectives are to provide Unitholders with: (i) stable monthly distributions; (ii) the opportunity for capital appreciation; and (iii) an investment in a portfolio of Canadian equity securities that exhibit low volatility of returns.

The Fund is a closed-end investment fund established under the laws of the Province of Ontario created to invest in an equally-weighted portfolio comprised of the 30 equity securities which have the lowest volatility of those securities included in the S&P/TSX Composite Index that have a minimum specified current yield at the time of investment. The Manager will write covered call options from time to time on up to 25% of the Portfolio in order to seek to earn income from option premiums to supplement the dividends and distributions generated by the Portfolio and to further decrease the overall volatility of returns associated with the Portfolio Securities.

The Fund will not have a fixed distribution policy, but intends to make monthly distributions based on the actual and expected returns on the Portfolio.
