The primary objective of the strategy is the preservation of capital together with earning income through investments in high-quality, short-term fixed-income securities.
We use fundamental analysis and other rational measures of value to identify and actively manage high-quality, short-term (less than one year) fixed-income securities issued or guaranteed primarily by governments, Canadian corporations and Canadian chartered banks. We target a weighted average credit rating of “AA”.
The strategy will invest primarily in high credit-quality issues that have been scrutinized for credit quality through an ongoing internal credit quality assessment across qualitative and quantitative factors. Spread analysis and duration-neutral strategies, such as barbell and bullet structures, are used for adding value through sector allocation and security selection.
