Able to travel up and down the market cap spectrum.

Successful 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 Total Equity pool owns a mix of large and small cap companies.

*The S&P/TSX Total Return is the headline index for the Canadian equity market, including dividend reinvestment, in Canadian Dollars, while the S&P 500 is the headline index for the US equity market, including dividend reinvestment, in converted to Canadian dollars. Collectively, the combination of these indices, with a weighting of 65% and 35% respectively, form the “Benchmark”. This Benchmark is provided for information only and comparisons to the Benchmark has limitations. The Benchmark is an appropriate standard against which the performance of the VPI Total Equity Pool (“the Pool”) can be measured over longer time periods as it represents the primary investment environments from which the Portfolio Manager selects securities based on long-term growth. Although there are similarities, the Benchmark includes broad stock indices that includes both dividend and non dividend paying equities that is weighted based on market capitalization with not all securities aligning with the strategy of the Pool. 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.
