Tactical Balanced Fund Investment Holdings
The Tactical Balanced Fund seeks to achieve its objective by investing in a diversified portfolio of equity and fixed income holdings. At times, the fund may also hold relatively smaller positions of options, futures, and other alternative investments.
The Fund's equity holdings consist of large, mid, and to a limited extent, small market capitalization companies. Regional exposure of the fund's holdings are primarily focused on Canada and the US, and supplemented with investments in select International and multi-national companies.
The investments held in the fund are predominantly highly liquid securities with a portion of the fund dedicated to income bearing instruments.
The fund is best classified as a: “Balanced Fund with a Tactical Asset Allocation overlay”. In simple terms, the fund utilizes both equity and fixed income products, while dynamically shifting between asset classes for the purposes of risk reduction.
Asset mix and sector rotation decisions are primarily based off of a “Top-Down” investment approach that utilizes macroeconomic and broad market factors. Individual security selection is based on a “Bottom-Up” approach that involves examining the specific attributes of each individual security.
Investment decisions are biased towards a value investing style, with other strategies, including momentum, growth, and special opportunity strategies employed to avoid an excessive concentration on only a few investment characteristics.

Long Term Targeted Asset Mix
Over the long term the fund should on average exhibit the targeted asset mix of:
- 60% stocks and alternative investments
- 35% bonds
- 5% cash and cash equivalents
However, deviations from the target asset mix may also result in the event of tactical and strategic shifts for the purpose of actively managing the fund's risk profile.
