Fund Overview

Overview

The Fund is a closed-end investment trust that invests in the utilities and telecommunications sectors and utilizes Strathbridge’s proprietary SSO covered call writing strategy to enhance the income generated by the portfolio and to reduce volatility.

Rationale

These sectors typically demonstrate predictable cash flows, high and growing dividends and are generally viewed as defensive investments. The Fund is appropriate for those investors looking for exposure to the Canadian utility and telecommunications sectors while earning attractive distributions with lower volatility.

Distributions

Distributions are calculated and paid monthly based on 7.0% per annum of the net asset value of the Fund.

Portfolio

The portfolio will generally consist of 15-20 issuers with approximately 2/3 from the utility sector and 1/3 from the telecommunications sector.
