We are pleased to announce that a new ASTRA Fund has been added to our segregated Funds family. This fund was chosen to give you access to the industry's top managers and increase the security and growth potential of our wide range of ASTRA Funds.
The fund is invested mainly in common shares of Canadian large-cap companies that pay dividend income. It may be invested to a lesser extent in Canadian preferred shares and fixed-income securities. The investment approach favors Canadian equities with high returns, including common shares and real estate investment trusts (REITs). These equities provide stable and predictable dividends/distributions offering moderate long-term growth prospects.
Considering the current low interest rate environment, all investors seeking diversification and potentially higher long-term returns stand to benefit from including the ASTRA Guardian Canadian Dividend Equity Fund in their investment portfolios.
