World Financial Split Corp.



Fact SheetFact SheetFund UpdateFund Update

Fund Overview


The Fund is a split share corporation which invests in common equity securities selected from the ten largest financial services companies by market capitalization in each of Canada, the United States and the Rest of the World. The Fund utilizes Strathbridge’s proprietary SSO covered call writing strategy to enhance the income generated by the portfolio and to reduce volatility.


While the global financial services market has experienced one of the worst financial crises in history, the investment manager believes the global financial services sectors are poised to provide strong returns over the next several years. The preferred shares are appropriate for an investor looking for a more secure investment than common equities with a high level of income. The Class A shares are appropriate for an investor seeking a highly leveraged play on the global financial services industry.


Preferred share distributions of $0.525 per share per annum are paid quarterly for a yield of 5.25% on the $10.00 original issue price. Distributions on the Class A shares have been suspended in accordance with the prospectus as the Net Asset Value per unit is less than $15.00.


The portfolio will generally consist of securities selected from the financial services sector with allocations to each geographic region varying based on the Investment Manager’s view on the opportunities and risks of each region.
