Pender's Funds Are Now Available Across Canada

VANCOUVER, July 12, 2017 /CNW/ - PenderFund Capital Management Ltd. ("Pender"), the manager of the Pender investment funds, is pleased to announce that its funds are now available for purchase anywhere in Canada*. To date Pender's funds have only been available for purchase in its home province of British Columbia, as well as Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. Availability now encompasses every Province and Territory of Canada.

Pender is an independent, employee-owned, value-based investment firm located in Vancouver. We have a suite of niche investment and alternative funds with concentrated portfolios of value-based investments.

Central to our investment process is to gain an understanding of the quality of a business or security and to obtain more value than we are paying for. This shifts our focus to inefficient, unloved parts of the market where we find businesses that are unfollowed, misunderstood and temporarily mispriced by the market. We apply a private equity approach to stock selection with rigorous, bottom-up, fundamental analysis to generate our "best ideas".
