TD Emerald Long Bond Overlay Pooled Fund Trust

Investment Strategy

The Fund seeks to provide investors with the benefits of flexibility and cost effectiveness within a transparent fund structure, to gain exposure to three times the FTSE TMX Canada Long Term Provincial Bond Index (net of funding costs) for every dollar invested into the Fund. The composition of the Fund will generally be $1 of direct investment in physical bonds and $2 of indirect bond exposure via an overlay.

Investment Objective

The investment objective of the Fund is to provide exposure to long-term provincial bonds approximately equal to 3 times the cash value of the Fund in order to provide a hedge against liabilities of an investor that are sensitive to changes in long-term interest rates.

Who Should Invest

The Fund is designed for Canadian pension funds seeking to better match the interest rate exposure associated with their pension liabilities by increasing their fixed income exposure.
