Fund Overview

Investment Objective

  • Seeks to provide a combination of capital preservation, income generation and long term capital growth primarily through investment in a diversified portfolio of Canadian securities.
  • Fiera Strategic Balanced Class pursues the investment objective primarily through investment in publicly traded common and preferred equity and income trust securities and in government issued or guaranteed bonds, corporate debentures, mortgages, REITs, convertible debentures, asset backed securities and treasury bills.

Investment Strategy

  • Cidel seeks to invest in a broadly diversified portfolio of fixed income investments and equity securities of companies with attractive cash flow and valuation profiles, a track record of returning rising levels of cash flow to securityholders with a conservative bias.
  • Cidel seeks to invest in companies with quality management, a practice of increasing dividends or share buybacks, and identifiable growth opportunities.
  • Cidel utilizes a blend of interest rate anticipation, yield curve management, sector allocation, and credit analysis to reduce volatility and generate income and more consistent returns with a view to meeting the Fund’s investment objectives.
  • For the equity securities component, Cidel follows a security selection process consisting of company screening, bottom up fundamental research/valuation and a final decision making phase based on perceived margin of safety and portfolio and risk management considerations.
  • For the fixed income component, Cidel seeks to be diversified by industry sectors, types of issues, as well as individual issuers.
  • The Fund may invest up to 50% of the cost of its net assets in foreign securities.
