TD Emerald Canadian Short Term Investment Fund

Investment Strategy

The portfolio of the Fund consists of a selection of high quality Canadian debt instruments, including commercial paper, bankers' acceptances and treasury bills.

The portfolio manager employs a disciplined approach to fixed income management, seeking to maximize current yield and reduce risk. This is an active fundamental approach with a focus on the extensive use of independently researched credit, and yield curve analysis in order to enhance returns beyond the defined benchmark. This investment approach is designed to consistently add incremental value regardless of the direction of interest rates.

The Fund only invests in investment-grade bonds and buys only R-1 rated commercial paper or higher.

Investment Objective

The Fund's objective is to preserve capital, maintain liquidity, and earn a high rate of interest income.

Who Should Invest

The Fund may be suitable for short to medium-term investors who are contributing to the income component of a diversified portfolio and can handle small changes in the value of their investment.
