Fund overview

The Fund has been designed to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of a Canadian 1-5 year laddered government strip bond index, net of expenses. The current index is the FTSE Canada 1-5 Year Laddered Government Strip Bond IndexTM (the "Index"). The Fund invests primarily in strip bonds, both coupons and residuals, derived from Canadian federal and provincial government bonds issued domestically in Canada and denominated in Canadian dollars. The investment strategy of the Fund is to invest in and hold constituent securities of the Index in substantially the same proportion as they are reflected in the Index.
