Investment Approach

The fund primarily invests in publicly traded, or to be listed, global equity securities, including emerging markets.
The focus is on investing in stocks of companies the investment manager believes are solid but temporarily out-of-favour and provide above-average total return potential. The country and sector allocations within the fund are a result of the stock selection process.
The currency exposure of the fund is typically unhedged, although currency hedging may be used to protect investments at the discretion of the investment manager.
Derivatives may be used in managing the fund.
