Canadian Dividend Fund

Objective

To provide investors with a source of monthly income, with some potential for long-term growth through capital appreciation and growth in dividends. 

Investment Style

We utilize a value approach to stock selection, applying bottom-up, fundamental analysis to all investment decisions. Our investment goal is to protect our clients’ capital while offering superior investment growth, regardless of economic conditions. We seek to invest in companies with stable earnings with a long-term business model and management team that we have a high level of comfort in. We focus on finding companies with a proven track record of paying and increasing their dividend over time.

As value investors, we tend to include companies in the portfolio when they are viewed as “out of favour” by the market and have declined in price. Companies can become undervalued when there is a lack of investor awareness, when an entire industry is out of favour with investors, or when a company experiences a short-term difficulty which, following careful analysis, we believe can be overcome. By purchasing these companies after a price decline, we find we are able to control risk in the portfolio as these investments often have less downside risk while offering a decent potential return.
