Fund Description

The investment objective of the Resilient Canadian Equity Trend Fund is to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns, with low volatility and low correlation to its benchmark, the S&P/TSX Total Return Index.

The Resilient Canadian Equity Trend Fund seeks to achieve this objective by following a systematic, non-discretionary quantitative trading strategy focused on entering into long and short positions in only S&P/TSX issuers. The Fund will use a specific set of parameters and constraints which are based on each security's historical price pattern and volatility to enter and exit positions. The investment strategy of the Canadian Equity Trend Fund may be broadly characterized as a systematic trend following strategy. The Fund may use leverage to further enhance the Fund’s overall return.
