Fund Strategy

The Fund seeks attractive risk-adjusted returns while preserving capital through a credit-focused, fixed-income investment mandate that provide low correlation to bond indices and less sensitivity to interest rates.

Investment Process

The Fund focuses on investment grade bonds primarily in Canada and employs a macro overlay to enhance returns and reduce volatility. This unconstrained fund gives the Fund’s managers the flexibility to manage duration and mitigate risk. With their extensive experience in the banking and financial services market in Canada, the Fund’s managers are uniquely positioned to trade existing bonds and new issuances.
