current market environment has created opportunities to invest in high quality
securities that have both attractive levels of income and capital appreciation

distributions initially targeted to be $0.05 per Trust Unit
($0.60 per annum representing an annual cash distribution of 5% based
on the $12.00 per Unit issue price); and
(b) to provide long-term capital appreciation.
The net proceeds of the Offering will be invested in an actively managed
Portfolio which will be diversified globally by region, by country and by
industry sector. The Fund's portfolio (the "Portfolio") will consist primarily
of publicly-traded common shares and preferred shares of issuers with a market
capitalization of $1 billion or more. The investment team of the Portfolio
Manager, which includes Connor O'Brien, André Marsan and Guthrie Stewart, will
focus on value securities that offer a relatively high level of current
