TD Emerald Canadian Government Bond Pooled Fund Trust

Investment Strategy
Over the long term, the Fund aims to provide exposure to the Canadian government fixed income market by investing primarily in bonds and debentures issued by Canadian governments (federal and provincial), municipalities, government agencies and supranational organizations. These are selected and weighted to approximate the overall characteristics of the FTSE Canada Universe Bond Index, with securities from some or all of the issuers listed above substituted for the corporate securities that normally are included in the FTSE Canada Universe Bond Index and subject to a minimum BBB (low) credit rating. The Fund uses stratified sampling to efficiently achieve index-like returns. TD Asset Management Inc. believes stratified sampling is the most effective technique to create portfolios that share the benchmark's key characteristics and deliver index-like returns.
Investment Objective

The Fund’s performance is measured against the FTSE TMX Canada All Government Bond Index, its objective being to provide performance generally similar to the FTSE TMX Canada All Government Bond Index, but without the incremental risk and return associated with holding corporate bond issues.

Who Should Invest
The Fund is designed for investors who wish to maintain a duration that is consistent with the FTSE Canada Universe Bond Index while obtaining exposure to government bond issues only.
