Investment Objective

To provide long term capital growth by taking advantage of the VALMO strategy in the U.S. market, with a momentum tilt.

Investment Strategy

Our experience and research shows that the momentum factor varies among different segments of the equity markets at different points in the economic cycle. Our current portfolios use a combination of S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 that we find provides significant value-added returns.

Just like for Canadian Equities, the U.S. Equity portfolio holds value type positions. This aspect of the portfolio is especially interesting for Canadian investors because of the wide variety of securities selected.
