Investment Objective

The Global Brands Fund’s investment objective is to seek an attractive long-term rate of return, measured in US Dollars, through investment principally in equity securities of companies in the world’s developed countries. The Fund will invest in a concentrated portfolio of companies whose success the Company believes depends on intangible assets (for example, but not limited to, brand names, copyrights or methods of distribution) underpinning a strong business franchise. The Fund may also invest, on an ancillary basis in preference shares, debt securities convertible into common shares or preference shares, warrants on securities and other equity linked securities to gain exposure to companies in developed and emerging markets, as well as equity securities of emerging market companies. The Fund will limit the use of derivatives to hedging purposes only.
