The Fund invests in an equally-weighted portfolio of equity securities of 15 Brand Leaders from the Brand Leaders Investable Universe that have a minimum market capitalization of US$10 billion at the time of investment and meet certain investment characteristics. The portfolio is rebalanced annually back to equal weights.
The Fund’s investment objectives are to provide Unitholders with: (i) monthly cash distributions; (ii) the opportunity for capital appreciation; and (iii) lower overall volatility of Portfolio returns than would otherwise be experienced by owning Equity Securities of the Brand Leaders directly.
In order to seek to generate additional returns, the Investment Manager will sell “at-the-money” call options each month on Equity Securities held in the Portfolio.
The Fund’s distribution target is $0.065 per Unit per month ($0.78 per annum).

July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016
You will usually pay brokerage fees to your dealer if you purchase or sell units of the Fund on the TSX. If the units are purchased or sold on the TSX, investors may pay more than the current net asset value when buying units of the Fund and may receive less than the current net asset value when selling them. There are ongoing fees and expenses associated with owning units of an investment fund. An investment fund must prepare disclosure documents that contain key information about the fund. You can find more detailed information about the fund in these documents. The indicated rates of return are the historical annual compounded total returns including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account income taxes payable by any securityholder that would have reduced returns. Investment funds are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. 100% of distributions are received in cash. If the Fund earns less than the amount distributed, the difference is a return of capital. The current yield is calculated based on the market price of the Fund.
The information contained herein is not an offer to sell nor a solicitation to buy any security. Such an offer can only be made by prospectus or other applicable offering document.
