TD Emerald Low Volatility U.S. Equity Pooled Fund Trust

Investment Strategy

The Fund intends to achieve its objective by investing primarily in U.S. securities subject to investment restrictions of the Fund. The fund is not expected to include all securities in the S&P 500 and could also include securities in the broader S&P Composite 1500 universe. Thus the tracking error relative to the S&P 500 Index is expected to be relatively high even though the standard deviation of return is expected to be less than that of the S&P 500 Index.

Investment Objective

The investment objective of the Fund is to provide a better risk-adjusted total return than a capitalization weighted market index such as the S&P 500 Index, used to track the performance of U.S. equity securities over a full market cycle.

Who Should Invest

The Fund is designed for Canadian registered pension plans, qualifying foundations, endowments and charities which are exempt from income tax in Canada and income tax in the United States in respect of dividend or interest income in the United States, who are seeking a broadly diversified portfolio with a better risk- adjusted return than the S&P 500 Total Return Index - US$.
