Fund Overview

Overview

The Fund is a split share investment trust designed to provide unitholders with exposure to the six largest Canadian banks and four largest Canadian life insurance companies and utilizes Strathbridge’s proprietary SSO covered call writing strategy to enhance the income generated by the portfolio and to reduce volatility.

Rationale

These securities represent the top ten financial service companies in Canada and provide diversified exposure to the sector. The Preferred Securities are appropriate for an investor looking for a more secure investment than common equities with a high level of income. The Capital Units are appropriate for an investor seeking a leveraged play on the ten financial service companies included in the portfolio while earning tax-efficient distributions.

Distributions

Preferred Security distributions of $0.78124 per security per annum are paid quarterly for a yield of 6.25% on the $12.50 issue price. Capital Unit distributions are calculated and paid each calendar quarter based on 7.5% per annum of the net asset value of the Capital Unit and are generally classified as a return of capital for tax purposes.

Portfolio

The Fund will invest not less than 5% and not more than 15% of the Trust’s assets in each of the following ten securities comprising the portfolio (Bank of Montreal, Bank of Nova Scotia, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, National Bank of Canada, Royal Bank of Canada, The Toronto-Dominion Bank, Great-West Lifeco Inc., Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services Inc., Manulife Financial Corporation, Sun Life Financial Inc.).
