GLOBAL MACRO CORE FUND (GMCF) - CLASS M

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE

The fund’s objective is to earn positive absolute returns with a lower level of risk compared to traditional equity funds. We seek to minimize drawdown risk whilst retaining the upside of equity-like investments.

INVESTMENT STRATEGY

The Global Macro Core Fund (GMCF) is designed to function as a core portfolio solution. The fund is risk targeted, meaning the focus is on managing downside risk rather than targeting a particular return level. The negative deviation deemed acceptable for the strategy in a given calendar year is (15%). Constraining risk to such a level is believed to be attainable through superior risk management achieved by a mix of long and short positions (the pairing of risk), as well as through asymmetric risk/reward trades where at all possible. The GMCF seeks positive absolute returns regardless of market conditions. As it’s namesake suggests, the GMCF is agnostic to geography and will seek investment opportunities where valuations are attractive.

Similarly, it uses currencies, futures, options and/or rates to achieve its stated risk management and return objectives. When seeking equity investments the preference is for a mix of value and growth. When looking for opportunities on the short side, valuation is an input – but more importantly we seek companies engaged in fraudulent behaviour or that we believe to be mis-guiding investors as to future return prospects. As such, those equities present a better asymmetric risk/return proposition than a security that is simply overvalued.

GLOBAL MACRO MULTI-STRATEGY - CLASS D

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE

The investment objective of the Class D Shares is to achieve attractive risk-adjusted returns and capital preservation by targeting lower correlations and volatility when compared to traditional equity benchmarks, across a full investment and business cycle. The product is designed to offer approved investors portfolio diversification and transparent access to most key market sectors with a collection of strategies designed to profit in most market environments.

INVESTMENT STRATEGY

The Portfolio Manager employs a multi-advisor-multi-strategy approach to deploying capital and managing risk. The core allocations and holding of the portfolio are focused on long only and long-short global large cap equities and the derivatives thereof designed to achieve above average index linked returns. The balance of the portfolio will include allocations to strategies designed to supplement core returns with market sectors and alternative strategies that traditionally reduce volatility and enhance overall returns in an uncorrelated manner to that of the portfolio’s core holdings.

A key feature of the portfolio construction and risk management is a systematic approach to many of the selected strategies and the algorithmic automation and management of the strategies themselves. Systematic approaches continuously monitor an ever-changing picture of supply and demand through a range of different durations and time series, attempting to remove behavioral factors that often negatively influence human decision making. The primary suite of trading technologies and algorithms are under exclusive license to the Portfolio Manager by Second Phase Technologies Ltd., Hand Stitched Algorithmics ULC. and Market X-Ray Ltd.

OASIS GROWTH FUND - CLASS O

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE

To provide superior growth of capital and income relative to the S&P/TSX Composite Total Return Index over all time horizons.

INVESTMENT STRATEGY

To achieve growth of capital and income by investing in a portfolio of equal-weighted, industry-diversified, high quality, primarily Canadian large and medium-cap securities. Without changing the fundamental investment objective, the Portfolio Manager may invest without limitation in foreign securities where sector appropriate. Periodic rebalancing moderates portfolio volatility and allows the portfolio to consistently achieve the rare adage: “buy low, sell high”.

In addition, we generate supplementary, passive income by selling options contracts on high quality companies.

We may occasionally use Canadian or US stock options or futures for protective or complimentary investment purposes.
