Leith Wheeler
Core Bond Fund

Objective

To provide a stable and attractive total return through investment in Canadian fixed income securities. The Fund will invest in Government and high-grade Corporate bonds, with a varying mix between short term, medium term and longer term maturities depending on the assessment by the manager of interest rate trends and prospective returns.

Investment Style

We take a conservative, disciplined approach to managing our Core Bond Fund. To manage risk, we set targets for duration, sector and credit quality factors which align with our interest rate outlook, industry sector and credit views. We aim to add value in the Core Bond Fund by identifying opportunities to shift investments between various maturities and between federal, provincial and corporate bonds. Safety and liquidity are the focus of our approach to fixed income investing.
