Administration & Governance

Introduction

Strathbridge Asset Management serves as the Manager and the Investment Manager of the Fund.

 

Manager

The Manager is responsible for providing or arranging for the provision of administrative services to the Fund including but not limited to:

  • authorizing the payment of operating expenses incurred on behalf of the Fund,
  • preparing financial statements and other accounting information,
  • ensuring that unitholders are provided with annual and semi-annual reports and other reports as required by applicable law;
  • ensuring the fund complies with regulatory requirements and applicable stock exchange listing requirements;
  • providing the Trustee with information and reports as required;
  • calculating and arranging for the payment of distributions;

  • Overseeing and paying monthly and annual redemptions;
  • Managing the issuer bid;

The Management fee payable to the Manager includes any amount payable to the Investment Manager.

 

Investment Manager

The Investment Manager is responsible for making all investment decisions and managing the call option writing program in accordance with the investment objectives, strategies and restrictions of the Fund. Fees for the provision of investment management services are included in the management fee.

The Investment Manager has an asset mix committee consisting of senior members of the firm. The investment process for the Fund begins at the asset mix committee. Members of this committee meet monthly to examine macro-economic variables and relationships among dominant economic factors. This process culminates in an outlook for the various capital markets around the world and provides the Fundamental basis for Strathbridge’s long-term market outlook. These views are integrated into the investment decision making process at the portfolio management level. The asset mix committee of Strathbridge oversees investment decisions made by the portfolio managers of the Fund.

 

Independent Review Committee

The Fund has established an Independent Review Committee (“IRC”) in accordance with National Instrument 81-107 – Independent Review Committee for Investment Funds (“NI 81-107”) which is comprised of three members who are independent of the Manager. The mandate of the IRC is to review and provide its decisions to the Manager regarding any conflict of interest matters relating to its management of the Fund that the Manager has identified and brought to the committee.

A conflict of interest matter is a situation where a reasonable person would consider the Manager or an entity related to it to have an interest that may conflict with the Manager’s ability to act in good faith and in the best interests of the Funds and Securityholders.

Board of Directors

The Fund has established a Board of Directors to assist the Fund in the provision of services by the Manager and the Investment Manager and to provide oversight of these activities. The Board of Directors consists of five members, three of whom are independent of the Manager and Investment Manager. The three independent members of the Board of Directors are also members of the Independent Review Committee. The Board of Directors includes an audit committee whose mandate is to review the annual and semi-annual financial statements and discuss any issues with the auditors.
