Overview

What Does the Pool Invest In? How Do We Invest?

The pool aims to deliver long-term capital appreciation and income generation by primarily investing in Canadian large, medium, and small companies that generate sustainable cash flow, are operated by competent management teams and have track records of wealth creation.

The portfolio manager believes the best businesses have strong competitive positions with barriers to competition, solid business models, and a focus on ESG. The pool may invest up to 50% in foreign equity securities.

The portfolio manager also purchases fixed-income securities that provide attractive returns through capital appreciation and interest payments. Fixed-income securities can range from 20% to 50% of the pool.

Able to travel up and down the market cap spectrum.

Successful balanced funds often get big and then have difficulty taking a meaningful ownership stake in smaller companies…thus falling victim to their own success.
The VPI Canadian Balanced Pool owns a mix of large and small cap companies.
