Overview

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

The pool aims to deliver long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in Canadian businesses that are difficult to live without, difficult to compete with and difficult to replicate.

The portfolio manager aims to acquire the best businesses at prices that are reasonable in relation to expected returns. The focus is on growth through business ownership where each business can grow earnings and dividends. The pool may also invest up to 50% in foreign equity securities.

*The S&P/TSX Total Return Index (“the Benchmark”) is the headline index for the Canadian equity market, including dividend reinvestment, in Canadian Dollars.  This index is provided for information only and comparisons to the index has limitations.  The Benchmark is an appropriate standard against which the performance of the VPI Canadian Equity Pool (“the Pool”) can be measured over longer time periods as it represents the primary investment environment from which the Portfolio Manager selects securities.  The strategy of the Pool is based on long term growth by purchasing equity securities of high-quality businesses that pay dividends and where there is an expectation of significant profit and dividend growth.  Although there are similarities, the Benchmark is a broad stock index that includes both dividend and non dividend paying equities that is weighted based on market capitalization.  Therefore, performance deviations relative to the Benchmark may be significant.  The Pool also has concentrated investments in a limited number of companies compared to the Benchmark.  As a result, a change in one security’s value may have more effect on the Pool’s value as compared to the Benchmark.
